Hi from Perth Australia - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Welcome Maheel,
    good to find another Ausie on board. Our numbers are on the increase.
    You have come to the right forum for the best advice.
    Are you planning to build an oven or merely brousing?
    You have a few nights to view a multitude of ovens and ideas as well as how and what to cook in them.

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

      Hi Neill

      i have wanted to build for a while, and was thinking of getting started before summer comes along .

      i was going to go with a brick arch (square end?) design but looking at some of the ideas on this sight may change that.

      once i sort out the size i can get the foundations in to build on

          I'm new myself, but the site is great!

          And it does seem to become an addiction....

          As I was filling concrete blocks today I kept thinking...... "Am I crazy!"

          Still not sure yet...... I'll let you know when I'm done.

            Hi Maheel et al

            I'm also from Perth (Willetton) and I plan to build an oven into an existing limestone wall (the oven door will be in the wall, and the oven behind, out of sight. I'm wondering if that's the right thing to do, to save space, or should I make the dome a feature in itself, and build it where you can see the whole thing? Also, do you get any warmth from the oven (are they any good for heating a patio area?)

            Anyway, this looks like a great site, so I look forward to the addiction.

            Regards to all who read this, whereever you are.

              Hey Maheel,

              i'm in Melbourne welcome!

              I built a tunnel (arched with squared ends). Much more simple to build but I think the dome design looks much better and apparently makes better pizza...
              There is a mob in Perth that will sell you the entire kit for an oven full assembly is by you!

              Enjoy the site - lot's of knowledge here.
