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!

  • Pic of block stand and hearth

    This is a picture (bloc_stand_sm.jpg) of the block stand and hearth for my brick wood fired pizza oven that I'm building in the backyard. The forms come off tomorrow. I keep thinking the thing is like a bunker, with every other core of the cinder block is filled with concrete and rebar and 7.5 inches of hearth

    Next step is to start laying the brick for the oven dome. Actually the very next step is to get the firebrick - I'm picking it up tomorrow morning.

    BTW in the immediate background is one of my dwarf apple trees (short tree on the left), the other almost twig-like tree is a dwarf peach tree (on the right - a stick with a few leaves). The apple trees bloomed this spring so maybe that means I will finally get an apple or two from them (it's been 3 years since I planted them). No chance of peaches from the peach trees this year (probably several more years before the peach trees do anything)

    Looking good! Looks like you have a nice big yard too...

    I know what you mean about the bunker. My friend told me that my stand looks much safer than my basement in the event a tornado comes through.

    Looks like we are in about the same stage of building. Good luck!
