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 the UK

    Well, I've been thinking and planning of building wood-fired oven in my back garden. About a year ago I was looking at an Alan Scott design. A few days ago I've found this site, and I'm definitely leaning towards the Pompeii design now, following some glowing reviews across a few other forums.

    A bit worried, mind, since I've never laid a brick in my life, but I've got a few tame builder mates to help me out...

    Welcome aboard.

    Do plenty of reading. And feel free to ask questions. Someone here will usually answer them pretty quickly.

    My best advice is to read the e-book and then find a few ovens that you like and follow that builder's thread for a little more insight.

    Be aware though. I think most of us our in favor of the Pompeii design, but some members have built barrel style ovens.

    Once again, welcome aboard.

      Don't worry, most of us never laid a brick in our lives.

      Check out Ken's Kentucky Dome thread.

      He never laid a brick before and did beautiful work!
