Unsolicited Plug for FB and James` crew - 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!

  • Unsolicited Plug for FB and James` crew

    A long time lurker about to build, I wanted to thank James for this site which I have been reading long enough to recall the original plan to put the insulating layer under the concrete base! The main purpose of this post is to encourage others to follow my example and support FB by buying its products instead of shopping hard locally where the difference (relative to total expense) is not that great. After 2 or 3 calls and helpful advice from FB, I ordered 6 bags of Refmix, 3 boards and 2 blankets that shipped next day and arrived in good shape w/i the week. Heatstop 50 was cheaper here, the comparable boards somewhat more and blankets less but I felt it important to say thanks for this extraordinary site even if shipping took me to a bit higher price overall. I have the security of knowing I`m getting the "right stuff" and the satisfaction of supporting a generous and hugely helpful vendor whose site has given me the info I needed to take on another oven (I built an Alan Scott that took forever and never worked because I skipped the insulating layer and build the oven right on a fieldstone base!).It seemed the least I could do in exchange for FB`s help.

    I wish I could add to this...but you have expressed mine (and many others) sentiments exactly. Great post.

    Lets not leave out all of the very helpfull and knowledgable members James has been able to attract.
