..hard to explain.. - 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!

  • ..hard to explain..

    ..I'm very serious about what I'm trying to do..I know there are thousands of dome ovens out there and have been for hundreds of years..it's kind of hard to expain what I'm gonna try and accomplish..I've worked in a bakery..the oven I'm gonna build is based on the one we used there that was gas fired..mine will be wood fired..I'm designing as I go..I have posted pictures in the hearth and base forum..I'm going kind of slow..because of lack of time..and money..I'm not being a wise guy but some people on this site seem to have unlimited budgets..I'm looking foward to peoples opinions once I get further along with my build..

      Your base and stand look great!! When you talked about budget I thought you meant you were going to build a mud oven on the ground!

      Brick is really not that expensive - especially if you can find used brick. Many of us on this forum have way more "money" in our ovens in terms of our own labor than in materials.

      Good luck and please post more pictures as you go!

        ..that's the first time of heard the terms..white oven and black oven..mine will be a white oven..I'm with you on the facts about "money" as in time spent..but I had 15 bags of concrete in the footings alone..around here ready mix is $5 a bag..I've been collecting brick, which I've had to bust old mortar off of..(there's that time thing again).. block is not as easy to find..there's 2 1/2 tons of rock in the center..oh well..

          Its pointless posting pics other than in the thread you are talking in?

          Post the pics here so we can view them with out having to hunt for them.....
