Adelaide - Where Else - 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!

  • Adelaide - Where Else

    Hi Guys,

    I've been lurking for a while and finally found the courage to post. There is a lot of information out there but nowhere is it more concise and varied ... well done and thankyou to all that have come before.

    I, like Iím sure many before, have been looking for the ultimate formula to build one of these ovens. What I have come to realise is there isn't a right way or a wrong way if you follow the general principles - good foundation, thermal mass and insulate.

    I have decided on a 42" igloo style oven. The current decision seems to be based around how much to spend i.e. firebricks vs clay pavers vs second hand red bricks etc.

    With all that said, the journey is as much fun as the destination so here we go ...

    I will keep you informed on my progress.

    Regards ... Paul.

    Hey Paul,

    Welcome to the forum. I look forward to seeing your progress. A WFO in the back yard is a good thing in all ways.

        Hi Paul, Yes you are right, follow the general principles and study this web site and you will get there. After having my dome (consisting only of fire bricks and fire clay) covered by a tarp all winter to keep it dry, I am now into the final stages of completion - it is very exciting, I am just waiting for the sun to come up this morning so I can get stuck into it again. Enjoy, it is great fun.
