WFO going up in Flagstaff, AZ - 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!

  • WFO going up in Flagstaff, AZ

    Before I start the details of this thread, I thank the folks at Forno Bravo. The resources and advice on this website are essential for my own project, as I am sure many others would agree. So THANK YOU! That said, I next have to admit that I am novice at construction projects so bear with me as I contribute to the Forum.

    A little background (motivation)...
    I live in Flagstaff, AZ. Heaven on earth (great weather, biking/running trails, and a strong community feeling), but to tell you the truth, no good Italian pizza. Iíve spent some time in Italy (see my bike touring website: http://oak.ucc.nau.edu/cjs235/Base_Touring.html), so I know what good pizza, and Flagstaff doesnít have it. So I got proactive.

    I began the project in June, but I was much delayed because I opted to have the foundation poured by a local contractor, which was consistently delayed as I tried to find someone that would do the job at a reasonable cost. Okay, no more complainingÖ now Iím off and running now.

    As for the progress on my oven, Iím completing the forms for the hearth this week and hope to lay the concrete this weekend. However, snow is in the forecast!

    I look forward to talking (and eventually helping) other folks in the forum.

      Hi James,

      Thanks for the warm welcome. Lately, the oven is all I work on at home, which I really like. Nonetheless, I can't wait for the bite of that first pie.

      It looks like the paranthesis got caught in the hyperlink... try this: Cycling Italy

        Welcome! Sounds like you're well on your way. I wish I had your winter temps so I could continue working through the cold months!
