Newbie intro - 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!

  • Newbie intro

    Just thought I'd say g'day. I've been looking through the forum for a few weeks after deciding to build a wood fired oven for our backyard. I've been gathering ideas from several sources and settled on a firebrick oven with a rectangular base.

    We had a brick bbq already and have knocked part of it down to accommodate the pizza oven. I laid the slab today and it's good to see things starting to take shape.

    I look forward to giving more details as the job progresses, but it things will slow down as my holidays are about to end.

      Australian summer! But we'll get ours back in a couple of months.

      Would you say "good on ya" to our Aussie contingent? Welcome aboard Rod.

        Hi Rod, and as Christo and James have already 'welomed you aboard'!
        Good to see another Aussie contributing to a wonderful forum. I'm keping a list of those from 'down under' (34 and growing) and a separate list for my home town of Adelaide (14 of the 34) and immediate area.
        Keep us informed with pics and questions in regards to your choice and build. We might be able to get someone close handy to you for help and advice although Dubbo is a little out of the way for most people.
