New guy from Austin, TX area... - 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!

    Nice. A great place to land. Watch out for the bats under the bridge!
    Stay out of the Continental but eat the ice cream across the street.
    Really good Red Beans & Rice on 6th St.
    The hill country is like a forgotten heaven.
    Maybe a wood fired oven can smoke out the folks that want keep Austin weird.

      I gotta tell ya... after surfing the threads here for a few days, I am absolutely blown away at how much info and expertise there is here.

      I'm extremely thankful I found this site.

      I'm getting all kinds of ideas for when I build my WFO.

        Welcome aboard, Ronzorelli!

        You are coming up on the perfect building season - starting about October. Don't wait till spring because the heat pretty much shuts most of us down in the summer.

        Ovens are an addiction!

          Building will have to take a backseat for awhile. Getting married in May and all the spare change between now and then will be put away to pay for that.

              Welcome to the forum. There seems to be several of us in the area building an oven. Take the advice about waiting until the fall. I got the base all done in June/July but the heat was almost too much.
