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!

    A friend is wanting to do ao brick oven restaurant. He wants to build the oven himself. Are there any liabilities to building the oven yourself if it's for commercial use?? He doesn't have the city, building, or menu picked out yet but he's sure he wants it to be a brick oven restaurant. Should he wait on the build or just start building it to get that part out of the way?

    Better talk to the city, fire inspector, building inspector... etc. etc.

    And anyone else who might object.

      I agree with that. Get all that done and approved before you make any commitments. It is different district by district, so contact everybody who might have authority.

        Re: restaurant

        just wonderin about the liability. i told him it would be a good idea to get it commercially built by a professional but he said that there is no real danger. Kinda like it's really safe and not much can go wrong.

            Any lawyers among us WFO rebels?

            Sometimes it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission! (that's the amature lawyer in me speaking )

            .....but it would be a major bummer to build an oven and then get shut down.

            There are lots of restaurants with wood ovens so I don't think liability for building your own oven would be too great. He's going to have insurance for the business and that would probably cover youi.

            Interesting question.....CJ, James, et al you guys building ovens for others?? Do you have some kind of errors and ommissions professional liability insurance?

              A restaurant is a business. I would make sure you have every permit required and all the insurance a professional agent recommends.

                I don't know how it is in Texas but in Oregon when We had our restaurant you couldn't do anything yourself but change a light bulb. and If you tried anything then someone would rat you out. The inspection prosess will protect you.
