Finally finished Oven :) - 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!

    I have finally finished! Man, I have "SO MUCH RESPECT" for Masons, lol! Posting a few pics of the 50" Oven, which will be used in our Café for of course - Pizza, lol! and bread, roasts, and seafood, mmmmmm. Many thanks to everyone on here who gave such great advice. CanuckJim saved my butt so many times, your help was very very much appreciated
    Please let me know what you guys (and gals) think of it, Cheers! Peace

    That looks fantastic - I really like the 'stucco with a few exposed bricks' look. It's something I had considered with my first oven build and an idea I may revisit with rebuilding my oven after my move. The higher resolution of these pictures really shows off the beauty of the flame in a wood oven and the pizza is perfect (time to get it out of the oven quick right after putting the camera down so it doesn't burn!). As the dome continues to cure you may want to experiment with larger fires to heat the oven prior to pizza, usually the back of the oven will be completely clear of carbon when you are ready to cook pizza.

      See, see, no worries, you got away with it far enough to do a terrific job. Cangratulations on a fine endeavour. I know it will contribute a very great deal to your cafe.

            How long does it take to get the 50" oven up to pizza heat?
