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!

    Well, another one from Downunder. Hobart, Tasmania.

    House extensions happening soon and the plan is to build a WFO upon completion. Came across this site and it would seem that this is the place to be.

    Interested on a Pompei style oven but i am very keen on tapered cutting of the bricks to reduce the mortar etc. I like the finish as well.

    Anyway, good to be in the company of knowledgeable people.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Welcome to the forum. You will find a vast amount of knowledge here that you can make use of. Sounds like you already have a plan and just need to make it happen. Enjoy the site and if you have any questions feel free to ask.
    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste
    like chicken...

      Yeh Steve, welcome aboard.
      You might like to check out Hendo's oven. Paul died earlier this year and I have committed to complete it with his brichie for his family to use.
      Paul used the taperred bricks and was fastideous in cutting them to fit but never got it completed. You can view it at:

      My 40" Pompeii was made with second hand fire bricks and the full build with explanations and pics is at:

      http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f8/n...-1-a-2005.html

      You will find a multitude of information in this form, the biggest problem is sifting through some of it (as you will never be able to read and comprehend all of it), and making the right decission.

      Good luck.

        Sounds awesome.

        Thanks for the support and the welcome.

        It would seem that this forum is a bit like the BMW one i belong to (i ride a '02 R1150RT), heaps of people out there ready to help.

        Once again, many thanks for the welcome

          Welcome Steve,

          I am in Melbourne, I have far less patience than these good folk so I built the easier oven :-( But if you have the time and the skills the dome looks like the way to go.

          cheers

              This topic came up a few months/weeks ago, see:

              www.fornobravo.com/forum/f2/aussie-readers-4516.html#post36869Don't waste your time. read the posts.
              Living in Melbourne, yu are not far from the biggest supplier of refactory bricks and ebay often has fire bricks in Melbourne up for grabs.
              You should be able to build a damn good oven using secondhand bricks/cement blocks for between $1000 mand $1500 all up, or if you want to go full on, then nearer or over $10 000.
              Mine owes me $1200 and that is with thermocouples, cast doors, stainless chimney and a host of other goodies.
              See it at:

              and follow the links to the different threads.
