Hello, Pizza (World)! - 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!

  • Hello, Pizza (World)!

    Ok, so I've been thinking about building an oven for a while now, but it looks like it may finally happen... just one question: has anyone tried building a combo oven/grill with the grill under a removable section of the vent floor and a firebox under the grill? Does it even sound doable, or does it make more sense to just build a separate grill? Probably the latter, but I thought I'd throw it out there...

    What I have used with success is called a Tuscan Grill. It sits in the oven over coals that you have dragged to the front.

      Hi JW, that sounds a lot more sensible...

        I've used one of my weber grill cast iron grill plates and set it on bricks in the oven over coals - best grill marks I've ever had!

          I have the above pictured Tuscan grill as well....SWEET!!!
          Don't get me wrong, I still use my Lynx gas grill extensively, the Tuscan grill gives you the option to utilize the coals in your oven after making pizza. (Utulize those BTUs)

            If you have a Weber ketttle BBQ, (or any open charcoal grill) you can shovel hot wood coals over from your brick oven, and do some nice real wood grilling there.
