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 was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the plans offered by Alan Scott, for $100 I think. Thanks. Tom Shands.

    Hi Tom,
    Many of us on this forum are very familiar with those plans, and some of us have built the oven. You could say that the shortcomings of that oven for backyard baking and roasting are what let us to create the Pompeii oven and this forum. There are many good postings here for you to read on that topic.

    A couple good places to start are here:

    We're all here to answer any questions.

      Another good posting

      I think Drake did a great job explaining his logic here:

      More food for thought....

        James, thanks so much for the reply and info. Looks like I'm going to go the Pompeii oven route. You're exactly correct, I just returned from Italy and saw nothing but the round oven design. One main reason I was looking for detailed plans is that I have some confusion about the details of dome construction on the plans posted here. Everything up to that point seems straight foward to me, but I just can't fully visualize or otherwise grasp how the dome assembly goes. Thanks again. Tom Shands.

          Tom,

          Isn't it great seeing the ovens in Italy. It all makes so much sense when you see so many of them and how "normal" they are. You can use the Forno Bravo Casa installation guide for some of the details, and there are a lot of very good photos in the forum on dome construction. You should use the flipped hearth described in the updated Casa guide.

          Enjoy the project and take lots of photos.

              It's here:

              http://fornobravo.com/residential_pi...izza_oven.html

              It's the standard guide for installing the Casa ovens. You can use it for footprint, dimensions, the stand, insulating scheme, enclosure, etc.
