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!

  • building plans

    Does anyone know if any detailed plans or sketches of brick pizza oven are available? I am planning to try to build one from scratch. Thanks in advance. Tom Shands.

    There is a group of very appreciated volunteers who are working on a downloadable PDF version. I'm sure Patrick will give us an update on that.

    For now, you can print each web page.

      plans

      it is going slow, We are just about ready to embark on the first "real chapter" the foundation. I do not believe that we will be actually creating detailed plans and drawings. Definitely there will be no blue prints. The general plan has been to update the innovations that the builders have developed and incorporate that into the instructions.

      Tom - the plans currently available on this site are very good, plus the discussion forum are a good starting point for you to make your own sketches. Go to the main page and on the lower left hand column hit the link for Pompeii. Everything is laid out there. Instead of sketches the web site includes outside/inside dimensions, height ratios and photo documentation of each stage of building. This allows the builder leniency to design his own oven and yet maintain proper cooking characteristics.

      A group of us are creating an updated PDF version of the plans as some visitors , me included, prefer to have all the info laid out in one easy location rather than printing each of the web pages. James has been very gracious to allow us to do that. That is how I got involved as someone asked if all this information could be downloadable in one file. Right now I have the current Forno version in a WORD file. Contact me with a real email and I will send you the files.

        Gimme Gimme

        Hello. I noticed you had the plans in a word format. I would be ever so appreciative if you would e mail those to me. I am about to embark on my first oven building journey, though My dad's built one, and my uncle's built three. In order for mine to be better than theirs, I'm trying to amass every bit of documentation I can before building. Cheers.. nicksemmens@hotmail.com
