Greetings from Michigan - 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 Michigan

    Hello Everyone!

    I am new to the FB Forum. I have been reading and studying about brick ovens and masonry heaters for a few years now and continue to be intrigued by the idea of building my own some day.

    I am looking forward to continuing my learning process here.

    Best Regards,

      Hello Kory,

      Welcome to the group,

      Like Cajun Knight says, don't put it off!

      They really are pretty easy to build; a little work here, a little work there, and pretty soon you are on to the next bit of fun, learning to use your own WFO in the back yard!

      Good luck with your build, keep us posted with pictures!

            CajunKnight & Jed..

            Thanks for the encouragement. I actually have been "collecting" some of the materials for a year or so. I purchase some when I can and hope to have everything gathered together in the next year or so. I still have so much learning and studying to do!

            Mike & db,

            Thanks also for the encouragement and welcome.

            Mike, I am in Mount Pleasant, due West of Midland. I read your complete build thread last night and really enjoyed it! I added to my "notes" as I have with much that I have read and learned from speaking to folks that have build WFO's.

            I have so many irons in the fire right now that it is best for me to keep my own build in the planning stages until I can focus more on it. Like I said, I am collecting some tools and materials and am eager to start.

            That being said, I want to involve my friends and family in the build and do it, for the most part, over a couple weekends. For this, I need a substantial amount of planing to be done prior to starting.

            I am a designer/fabricator/welder by trade and enjoy "building" things. I have never done any masonry work, ever, and look forward to starting someday!.

              Kory,

              Good luck with your build. Even though you're not a mason, you have some "building" experience. You'll be golden. As you can see from my thread, you can get by pretty well with absolutely no knowledge or experience with construction.

              Getting it done in a few weekends is ambitious. I need a group of friends like yours! The forum is an awesome resource. The photos and collective advice are invaluable. Looking forward to your build.

                I'm not much on steel fabrication and need a door for BenjaMia....

                Hmmm, what to trade for?

                Good luck with your plans...it's great fun!
