Ellie's Oven Complete w/ Door - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Ellie's Oven Complete w/ Door

    Hi everyone,
    Seems like a long time has passed but have been insanely busy with the garden this summer.

    Here is the finally finished oven with the door a friend made for me. I made a few pizzas but really want to use it as an oven and can't wait to do it.

    Many thanks to all of you who helped me along the way. I sure appreciate this forum and the good folks in it.

        Thanks. While I was curing the paint for the door, the little fire wasn't to be wasted. I warmed up some tri tip that was previously barbecued. Even just warming it up gave such a warm, smoked flavor!!

              Thanks, Drake. To the left under that wood is a regular barbecue with two rack heights so that I can grill with wood or briquettes. To the right under the counter is storage.

              Just for the record and in case some of you weren't following when it was built, I hired a mason to do the job. He was out of work (not much call for a mason in these times) and I didn't have a lot of money, lol. It worked out great! I asked the forum for help when we got stuck, and I am so very pleased with the results.

                  Hi again Ellie,
                  good to see you back again.
                  I thought you had disappeared a little like myself.
                  Good to see that you have finished your oven finished and hopefully enjoying using it.

                  Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

                  The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know
