Hello from SoCal - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

    Welcome to the Forum Chris. Ya, I was the same way last year, found them and then a year later I'm having my 1st fires in the oven this week. There is so much info here, it's really alot of fun. Good luck, ask questions and enjoy the process (and eventually pizza, bread, roasts......) , Dino

      Hey Chris,
      You will be very glad you found this site. The help is endless. I got the majority of my materials at Supply Line in San Juan Cap., so you have a very close supplier. We'll lok forward to following your build.

        Thanks Dino and Excel! Also for the tip on Supply Line in SJC. I'll keep everyone in the loop on the progress.

              Again, Thanks All for the support and kind words

              Standard sized Medium duty Firebrick at Supply Line $0.95 each and in stock.
              and now I'm the new owner of a $229 Harbor Freight 10" saw. I splurged forr the stand and a 1yr extended warantee.

              The foundation was set a couple of months ago, so the legs and hearth are next on the to do list.

              I'm not really clear where the active, in progress, builds should be. Since it's going to be a 43" Pompeii, should I open a new thread there?

              Thanks all!
