I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Central California 42" Pompeii

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    Here is the link to pictures of our build. We finished the dome yesterday. Thanks to all for sharing your journey of the brick oven. I hope ours might add a little to the knowledge base here at Forno Bravo. Thanks again.

    Hi Jon
    Great job and thank you for posting the link to the album. It's going to make my build a little bit easier going forward.

      Jon,

      Great job, both on the oven and on the presentation. Your pictures tell a great story on putting together a WFO.

      How will you finish the dome? And when do you start your curing fires?

          Hi Jed,

          I am trying to be patient on the curing fires. We are trying to slow the curing process. We finished the capstone on Wednesday so would like to wait for at least a week. I am a complete novice on understanding masonry but read somewhere that at least a week would be good. I don't totally understand the science behind this myself.

          As far as the finish on the dome at first i thought i would build a frame and stucco that hides the dome. I dont think domes in general are that pleasing to the eye but we are going to finish the dome with stucco and ceramic tiles imbedded in the stucco. I dont have a total picture in my minds eye on how it totally looks yet but just like the idea that it will be colorful and fun.

          Thank you for the kind words.

            Jon,

            It is a test of patience to go slow through the curing fires, and to postpone starting the curing fires for at least a week... But it is best for the cement involved.

            Keep us posted on your next steps!
