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!

  • Thinking about a build!

    I have just built a great patio and would love to build one of these ovens to go along with it. I was thinking about buying one of the Pompeii90 kits from forno bravo to get started. Any thoughts for a new guy? I've gone over the instruction book thoroughly and have been checking out this forum quit a bit. Would love some advice from some of you experienced builders.

    The best advice is just jump in and do it....you can get pleanty of coaching along the way or just surf the forum for answers, they are all out there somewhere..even the technical stuff if you need it

    Good luck and I hope to see your build started soon

      put some serious thought into the size you choose, as you won't be able to increase it once started, (but then again you don't want one too big either)!
      I have a 40"Pompeii and can do up to 5 pizzas simultaneously with a bit of effort. A 36" is considerably smaller and may not meet your needs.

      Cheers.

        Jay,

        If you can construct a patio, you can build an oven. Some of the elements of a Pompeii look challenging at first, but the more you look at it the simpler it seems. Just approach it one step at a time and you'll been done before you know it.

            Jay,

            There are several guys who have posted spreadsheets with actual costs...Dino's ran about $5400 if I remember correctly. Mine so far has been roughly $1000 but I have been scavenging and using craigslist
