About to Start a Pompeii oven soon - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • About to Start a Pompeii oven soon

    Hi all,
    As title suggest, hopefully it will be in the next few months, still have to do some prep work in the backyard, but I have decided on a 42" diameter pompeii style brick oven.

    Since I am new to Brisbane, more precisely, nortern suburbs, I was wondering if people can tell me of locations for fire bricks, mortor, vermiculite and insulaton blankets from.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Zippa92 and welcome aboard.
    There are numerous members from Brisbane (5 that I have on my list), who can better guide you as to the best brick and other material suppliers. Hopefully they will chip in to help you.


    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

      Hello Zippa92
      Welcome. I'm at Burpengary. Did my first pizzas last Sunday. You must build one of these magic ovens.

        Hopefully will get to start soon.
        Have wanted to since moving back from living in Europe for 5 years, but was never going to be possible in Perth, as we lived inner city in a higher lvl apartment.

        I have however, never laid a brick or concrete before, but am quite determined now since a workmate doesn't think I can do it since I have never done it before.
