Introduction - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • Introduction

    Hi, I came across this forum while researching brick ovens, and it looks like an excellent resource. I just bought a house with pretty much nothing in the backyard, so I thought it would be fun to put a brick oven in the plan for the back patio and landscaping.

    It'll probably be a while before I can actually build it, since there will be a lot of planning and prep work required to get the yard planned and adequately leveled, but meanwhile I'll be reading through the forums to see what other people have done to get ideas.

    WELCOME! Don't be afraid to ask questions, there is a wealth of experienced and knowledgable folks on this forum.
    Just remember, when the build starts........we like to see pictures.
    Good luck

        Yes Levi, welcome.
        the obsession will come very quickly and if you are not to careful, you will be up to armpits in the build and then as I am now, enjoying the products that come out of the ovens.
        It all happens just as fast as you can cope. Read, ask, plan and BUILD!!!!
        Check out all the pics of the different builds as there are a multitude of ideas on which to ponder.

        Happy planning.

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

          Welcome! You will find (as I have) that the folks here will turn you into a backyard mason in no time! I can honestly say that I have enjoyed this home project more than any I have done, and this forum is a big reason for that.
