New and Happy to be Here - 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!

  • New and Happy to be Here

    Hello everyone..finally a site with a wealth of information and a great bunch of people. I am just starting to plan my oven which probably won't be started untill fall or next spring. I happen to own what used to be my grandparents home...As a child i had the unforgetable pleasure of eating here with a very large family. The Sunday meals were a feast. Pizza..chicken..roast potatoes were all cooked in a brick oven located behind the garage. Unfortunately as time passed and the oven was seldom used my grandfather tore it out. the only remaining thing i can find is a single fire brick. I want to bring back those wonderful foods and feasts again. i have restored one piece of cooking history from my grandparents..a 1936 Kalamazoo wood stove. It's a joy to cook on. I've rambled enough: just wanted to give a little backround. My initial plans for this oven is for a 42 inch and i would really like to face the outside with tile. Right now i am just feeling my way around. Its a pleasure to be here and i am sure i will have many questions. Thanks everyone

    Welcome Vincent

    (M) "Welcome Aboard!"

    (M) We have many David(s) but I think you're the first Vincent I've come across on this forum. People tend to have "handles" so dissimilar to their real name. JoeEngineer, e.g. is really Patrick, arrevalo53anos is Luis, ColonelCorn76 is Jim, dmun is David, etc. but Vincent is Vincent, James is James and Marcel is Marcel. Datsa me.

    (M) Perhaps you could use that brick as the dome's Keystone, or as a Keystone for the decorative arch you might build.
