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!

  • Regional User Groups/Chapters

    Do you think we are ready to start establishing some form of regional user group network? We could start putting together regional gatherings to talk about installation, construction, cooking and pizza. It would help bring the community together, and let folks who don't have an oven, or are working on one, see other people's ovens and practice cooking.

    Setting this up would require people to volunteer to head their regional group, and help put events together.

    I'm not sure if we are ready for this, but I thought I would bring it up. Better early than late.

    Chime in and let me know what you think, and if you would be interested in heading up a local chapter.

    I thought I would throw this back on top of the pile. Do any of our members want to start thinking about firing up (hah) local FB Forum Chapters?

      Jim, it sure would be nice to have one here in Texas. I see great posts from members in Austin and the DFW areas. With me just getting started, I find one of the hardest things to do is find the right stuff and info for where I live.(i.e. wood, ingrediants like flour and cheese, how to cook with the humidty, etc).

      I will add, when I do post a question I get great response and info from all over the place.

        Richie,
        My thinking is that when some of our members are ready to organize something, we will be able to start building local groups. There's nothing like seeing other people cook in their oven to share ideas and learn. I think that also extends to oven building.

        I think what the Big Green Egg has done with user groups, cook-offs, etc. is pretty impressive. I can see it now; Forno Bravo World in Las Vegas!

          I think it would be GREAT, I don't know anyone in a city of 2 million plus that has a Wood Fired Oven in their backyard. I would love to look at one up close and see what someone else has done. Count me in when that day comes I definately have alot of interest from neighbors and friends to come over and eat

            James,

            There aren't that many members from Toronto or Ontario, for that matter, yet, but when the numbers grow, I'd be willing to have a look at the mechanics of getting involved in such a local chapter. My copious free time would allow it.

              Count me in for the Texas/Dallas Chapter...once we get Southlake open it will be a great place to see a high volume commercial operation. I'd love to host events at our house with our oven too. Even better, we are bringing in Neapolitans all the time to run our kitchens, and as long as you give them beer, on Sundays they are happy to show off their skills.

              We've already got enough artisan pizza spots in Dallas to put together a nice pizza crawl/pub crawl.

              I actually rode my bike by a house 1 mile from mine in Fairview, TX that has a nice looking pompeii in the backyard!

                I've been thinking a local Oz chapter could be quite helpful
                Cheers
