before i start? - 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!

  • before i start?

    I was wondering if I did all of the work on my own... how much (ballpark range) of an investment am I looking at?

    You'll find a huge range of answers, unfortunately. There are so many variables than affect the cost. Here's a link to an earlier thread on the same topic that might be helpful:

      I think to a large degree it depends how much time you've got (or rather how patient you are...)

      If you can hang around waiting and keeping your eyes open for some second hand fire bricks to be offered somewhere and so on for each step of the build, you should be able to keep the costs quite low. But hanging around and waiting can be very hard once you've started!

          Way over $1000 USD for me.

          You can click my spreadsheet below. As Modthyrth said above... You can spend a little or a lot.

            Sorry, no spreadsheet, but around $1700 for mine.
