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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Granite Preparation Surface

    I went shopping today for a granite work surface for pizza making. Managed to find a lovely piece of black granite that I am now having polished up to become a portable pizza preparation area.

    Can cancel my gym membership now - I will get all the exercise I need just moving it around!!!

    Collecting it on Wednesday - pics to follow..

    Drool!


    Get a slab of butcher block while you're at it - someone is bound to blunt your best knives on the granite unless you give them their own place to play.

      Re: Granite Preparation Surface

      As my oven build has reached the floor-configuration stage, one of my visions is to build a roll-around cart with a marble/granite top and 6" tall 'walls' to frame the sides and back of the work surface. I envision a stone of a lighter color since the temperatures frequently get in the 100's here in southern california.

      Can't wait to see your pics.

        .

        Good idea... though I tend to do the chopping elsewhere and then just make the pizzas "on site" so not much need for knives at that point. Hopefully nobody will show up and try and help - armed with the Wusthof!!!

          Now that is an excellent solution!!!

          Always so much stuff to round up and take to the "site"... then always something forgotten when the hands are all full of toppings!!!!

            I collected it tonight - the granite has a beautiful colour (black with gold specs). Very pleased with it - so much so that I am making a celebratory batch of pizza on it (to cook on the pizza stone)!!!
