Greetings from Texas! - 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!

  • Greetings from Texas!

    Sure am glad I found this corner of the world. A few weeks back somehow decided I wanted to start making pizza at home for me and the family. Used to make pizza at a joint in high school (30 years ago!) and have good memories of that. Actually made my first pizzas yesterday (a few hand-tossed, and a Sicilian) and they came out very nice.

    No specialty oven currently, only my kitchen Whirlpool. Very much interested in these wood-burning ovens!

    Looking forward to learning here.

      Alan, if you have gone this far - you are hooked! I'm thinking that your build will start before March. Welcome aboard to the obsession.

          I like your thinking, Les! Just now starting to go through the downloaded plans, for "pleasure reading". Fire good.

When the neighbors are yelling at you for cutting bricks while they're trying to sleep and the wife has officially quit talking to you for spending all your time in the backyard working on the oven- just come here for support! We have a 12 step program to recovery...ending of course with your first Wood Fired Oven pizza!

              Always nice to welcome another Texan Alan! I am up near Dallas, east of there a bit specifically. I have only just begun an oven, and the outdoor kitchen that will fit around it. Spend a bit of time on this forum and follow a few of the build threads all the way through, and you get a pretty good feel for what is involved in building an oven. If you have not decided you want to do one for yourself, you will shortly
