I am new here. Ready to build. - 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!

  • I am new here. Ready to build.

    Hello all,
    I am new to this forum and wood fired ovens. I helped a friend finish his oven a few weeks ago. After watching him start the fires, cook the pizzas and the best part eating them. I AM HOOKED! I have been searching the web looking for sites to help me in the process of oven construction and pizza making. I hope the people here can help me on my journy to fun and good food.
    I will have hundreds of questions for you. I hope they can be answered here.

    Welcome to the forum. Spend some time looking around, most basic questions or concerns have already been addressed. Besides while looking around especially at the pictures you can refine your design and layout. By all means don't hesitate to ask ANY QUESTION, people all have a different perspective.

        Hey Fullback,
        Don't listen to ANY other forums, web sites or instructions on oven building! After Three + years of research, I have found THIS forum to be the best by far! At one point I was going to build a mailbox type oven and Boy, Am I glad I found this forum before I did!! Great people with greater advice on building a Pompeii!! Welcome to the 'Funny Car' of Oven building! !
        Oh, and nice GOAT! ( gTo....The Great One!)

          Yeah, Rick (Oventhusiast) is right. I did all the same research. I had dozens of bookmarks about outdoor ovens. After a month or so of pouring over Forno Bravo's resources, including this message board, I ended up deleting all but ONE bookmark: www.fornobravo.com.
