Northwest Outdoor cooking addict - 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!

  • Northwest Outdoor cooking addict

    Hello everybody
    I live in Washington state USA. I have a homemade smoker/bbq that I biult a couple years ago that I use all the time. Cooking with a wood fire is one of my hobbies. I am interested in several different types of outdoor cookers and have been locating new/used materials that I can recycle into a masonry cooker. I have a small, sort of covered, outdoor cooking area where my smokers and grills are now with plans to build a outdoor kitchen. It looks like this is a good place to find knowledge I need to do it.

    Welcome. I have found that staring eyeball to eyeball with a fire while cooking is more fun than standing over a fire like grilling. It takes on a life of its own and you learn to work with it instead of work over it. Hope you enjoy the site. Good luck.

      Hey Cacus,

      Welcome to the site. If you have an interest in the masonry oven, this forum is possibly the best site to research options, and see what works. And often with explanations why one method might be a better way to build instead of another. There is a comprehensive body of information in the threads on this forum about this topic.

      And if you have any new ideas, put your idea on the forum, and we are likely to have an opinion or two that may help you decide if it is the right idea for your oven..

      When you start building, we all like pictures, so please send pictures along so we can watch your progress!

      Best of luck with your project..
