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!

                  Stonylake I strted curing with a small fire to 300 degrees then add 50 degrees everyday till 500 toniight it will be done I was thinkg of setting up the propane burner but it seemed easier to just build the fire instead.Holy cow this upload is taking forever still trying to post some pictures but have been getting errors.

                        looks great! how much $$$ do you think you will have in this? i built the 36" brick oven in my back yard at home but want one at the cottage @ Stony Lake. i don't want to spend the whole summer cutting brick though.. and i like the stand setup that you have, i like the idea of being able to move it around.

                          Hi Stonylake I have the cost of the casas 2g80 and brick front and the shipping the table was left over from a job we did probably $100 in metal to do the table maybe a little more
                          I think the stand at FB is $750 though then I think with the materials for the pad and a few odds and ends was around $200 the assembly was fairly quick
                          once the pad is poured then you wait but we have made a few pizzas and beef ribs I hope to put the scratch coat on tonight but it was EASY the hardest part was gettting the stand together but I can weld and half of it was already made so $1850 for the oven and $150 for the brick front and $2 to $300 in misc hope that helps

                            thanks. just what i needed to know. i have a lot of old steel warehouse racking and a bunch of friends that can weld.... i also have about 6 pallets of old street brick. i don't know what freight would be to Michigan, but i should be able to get this done for about $2500.00... not bad.
