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!

    Re: Hello

    Greetings, I'm in the process of building a 36" pompeii in my small city yard, the biggest decision for me was where to put it and how big could it be.

    If you haven't already read the plans, look here:

    Brick Oven Plans | Build an Italian Brick Oven

    This is a great overview of what's involved, also take a look at some of the oven construction threads, and take advantage of the forum "search" function, you're sure to have lots of decisions to make along the way, and you'll see how each oven is unique.

    I never would have attempted this without the forum and all of the great people here who are ready to share what they have learned,

    good luck,

    Doug

      In addition to the plans, there are a few builders in your area that should be able to steer you in the right direction for material. If you want to avoid all the shopping, James is offering pretty much all you need in one package.

        Re: Hello

        Having recently sourced out materials in the Phoenix area for my oven, I can tell you that James' kit price is *extremely* competitive. I would have gone that route had it been available when I was building. If you'd like I'm happy to share the local resources I found. I concentrated on east valley suppliers, but bought some of my materials from Phoenix sources that wouldn't be too far from you.
