After 2 yrs I'm finally done - 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!

  • After 2 yrs I'm finally done

    Not sure if this is the right place to post pics but I had to post this somewhere! Iv'e been working on this for about 2 years, summer time only and just finnished the tile work today. What a nice feeling to know I can sit back and enjoy the pizza of my labor. I would like to thank the people here who were kind enough to give advice when needed and for sharing all this wonderfull information

    Great job. Nice tile work. Lots of table space. When can we come over?

      Finished? Finished? What a triumph for you. Looks great. My oven has been up and running almost four years, and one of these days I'll finish the cosmetic work. Natch, in my copious free time.

        Oh my goodnesss -- I'm drooling all over my keyboard. Nice kitchen! Congratulations on completing.

        p.s. Regarding whether or not this is the correct forum to post this kind of message in... I see the word 'finish' in the forum title, so it must be the forum for posting messages about finishing a project

                Beautiful very nice work. I have just started my kitchen this month and have the 16 X 20 covered area completed, now for the concrete work and oven. Thanks for the photo, it helps me visulize my own ideas. Enjoy your kitchen. Here's a toast to you!

                  Thanks to all for the great replies. It's been fun building it but I don't think I'd do it again in this life time. I've gotten some really great pizza out of this oven so far and would like to contribute a web site for any one that might still be struggling with finding that perfect pizza dough. I've been playing with pizza dough for about 8 yrs and just got the hang of it the last year thanks to this site. Jeff Varasano's NY Pizza Recipe

                  Yes I will gladly post a full size picture

                  You only live once so eat pizza!

                          Now for some results! I wasn't able to get any pics of the pizza but I did get some of the bread the next morning. When the pizza came out of the oven, I turned around to get the camera and the pizza was already gone.

                            Hey Bruce,

                            Manteca is just up the road from Modesto. Your bread looks great. That a nice deep brown and good carmelization. Take that Boudin.
