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!

  • Hello from South Dakota!

    I'm planing to build an oven in a year! I need to price materials figure out the right foundation for the climate I'm in and find the time to do it. I want to use it for pizza, bread, roasts and barbecue.

    Welcome aboard,

    I have relatives in Great Falls, North Dakota. I guess that's sort of close.

    How long of an outdoor BBQ season do you have?

      My last Q was Thanksgiving Turkey. Then I just did a Pork Shoulder last weekend 4/19. We had snow on the ground the weekend before.
      I am making a 55 gal barrel smoker currently. Spent more than I should have on nuts and bolts. Should have just rented a welder and been done with it. Currently the intake from the fire box to the smoking chamber is too small. Maybe I can fix it this weekend.
      Do you install ovens for a living?

        James runs this place. He sells everything you need.

        Welcome Orrin,
        Read up on the recent posts regarding footings for cold weather areas - it does get cold there?

        Tons of good information here. Read and ask questions. The search function will give you amazing amounts of information on almost any queery (Hmmm, that sounds a bit gay). Always second guess my advice though. I'm just here for the free flour.

        If you've got a full year till your build, you should be way ahead of the game by the time you break ground.

          I am a patient man, until I see a shiney object. Then I'm all over the place.
          I think this will be a good project for me to practice focusing my energy, in a positive way.

            Had a lot going on this weekend preparing for Rummage/Garage Sale. Also, it snowed about 3 inches/ 7.5 cm. Had to shovel and salt. No time for smoker.
            Thinking of trying the pizza dough recipes. I've known about the protien content of the flour hadn't thought about the gluten content. It's been a while since I studied chemistry. Or is it biology?
