Hello from So Cal - 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!

  • Hello from So Cal

    Hello everyone. Just stumbled upon this site and intend to come back. I wanted to introduce myself as there are some very interesting discussions that I would like to be part of.

    I am a plastering contractor in Southern California as well as a non-professional "pizza connoisseur". I have always been intrigued by pizza ovens but never learned how to build one. This site looks to be an invaluable resource.

    As a plaster contractor and any connections you have along with this forum you will have no problem building your oven. Its alot of fun building it and learning how to cook with it. What part of SoCal are you in?

      Hello Thom,

      Welcome to this site.

      Your first impression is correct, there is a wealth of information (and a couple questionable jokes) on this web site. The interest in all things WFO (wood fired oven) is well developed here. You will find discussions on all phases of the construction and use of a WFO here.

      If you decide to build an oven (there is a good plan set available for free on this web site - look for the free e-books in the store) we can help with any questions you might have with the process.

        Thanks for the tip! I downloaded the plans and they are very informative! Looking forward to learning more from everyone.

        I live in San Clemente. As a plasterer I have a lot of appreciation for the way they build in Itally. The idea of everyone in the USA having a WFO is a great concept. Perhaps along the way we could replace ugly stucco with Italian plaster

          I love the way Venetian plaster looks. I've thought about teaching myself to do it on a couple of walls in the house... but I figured teaching myself to stucco first wasn't a bad place to start!
