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!

    Well, what you guys think? They say 30F tonight, I covered the slab with plastic film, I hope that should be fine.

    Looking good: You should be fine on the temperature. The ground stays warm for a long time, and the concrete generates some heat of its own.

      Greg,

      Hello, I just noticed your posts. I am located in Pickerington.

      I have my oven about 95% done. All I have left to do is make it look pretty. If you have any questions give me a yell, I will be glad to help out.

      Good to see someone nearby with the same interest in brick ovens. Keep us up to date on your progress.

      John

        thanks Jag! I will probably have many questions, you will be sorry you asked

        For example, where did you get the 2x2 angle iron from?

          Greg,

          If I remember correctly it was,

          Columbus Pipe & Equipment Co.
          773 E. Markison St
          444-7871

          Unfortunayely the smallest length they sold was 20'. I was way cheaper than anybody else in town so I bought a length and I still have quite a lot left over. I don't know how much you need but if you want to come get some I will give you mine, no charge. Also we can cut it to length at my place if you don't want one of my full lengths.

          John

                Jag, I cant send you any PMs. It seems like the PM system is broken - I click SEND and the PM disappears and my sent box remains empty. My email is leckig@gmail.com

                I got the angle iron today and I am trimming the blocks now.
