We're building in Niagara -- any WNY / Southern Ontario enthusiasts? - 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!

  • We're building in Niagara -- any WNY / Southern Ontario enthusiasts?

    So, much like many other posts on here, I decided to bite the bullet and began building one of these ovens... So far it's only been a week and I've got my concrete slab all installed with today, weather permitting, to go and get some concrete blocks and begin building the stand.

    So far all I'm doing is reading the guide and doing matters one step at a time (I didn't read it all through becuase I didn't want to give myself a reason not to carry on... Kinda thought that it would better to be left until when I get to the oven-making stage - in which case I either have to carry on or have a giant concrete table in the back yard)... LOL

    So an extra shout-out for all you WNYers or Southern Ontario peeps --- if anyone reading this is in the Buffalo/Niagara region, on both sides of the border, any has any local tips on building materials (firebricks; preferrably tiles), personal experiences (building or otherwise) - then it's be very much appreciated.

    I know I'm going to need a lot of help soon enough - so my advanced thanks to everyone who gets involved to help me get this project up and going...

    Thanks all

    I'm originally from up the road on the other side of the canal, but now am in Minnesota. I haven't noticed any other forum names close to you, but you never know. Good luck!
