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!

  • Newbie Oven build melbourne

    Started my base today, it's been a long time in the wait and probably a long time build. Having only Sundays to work on it will take a while, but the fun begins.

          Awild,

          Welcome from the other side of the hemisphere. There are quite a gang of Aussies to help you with supply sources as well as the rest of us if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing your build. Very nice looking corner build similar to what I did. Good luck.

            Justa few more pics of the base and the stainless steel spit I will be installing inbuilt on the side of the oven base. Great to get some messages from guys all over the world wishing me luck. Thanks to everyone, hope I get the time to finish the build this year.

              Did you check with your council about the location of the oven in relation to the boundary fence? It would be a pity, if your neighbour has issues they might be able to force you to pull it down or never allow you light it again.

                  You can build right on the boundary as long as the building material is fireproof. Ya have to love Vic dont ya.....

                    thanks brickie..... cant get past the Victorians, dying breed we are

                    Im actually building a outdoor entertainment area once the oven is done and the entire back yard will be enclosed. As for the permits I will need one for that and the inspector did say I should clad the wall with fire rated cement sheet around the oven and BBQ area. but that could be years away....... my backs killing me after mixing 18 mags of cement on the weekend to core fill the besser blocks. Glad I had a family member that has a concrete mixer I will use for the slab.

                        Thanks, I hope ppl get a few pointers from the build...

                        The sad thing is that the novelty of the oven seems to have worn off a tad.... although, we did do a pork roast the other weekend, and then a nice stew the following day, so maybe its not all lost?

                          See no novelty lost as long as you enjoy it when you do.

                              We have only got a fairly small back yard, if there was room Id build something else, I may have room for a few low drystone walls at a pinch.
                              The whole block is only a 1/4 acre and the the built stuff occupies most of it, owh and the stupid long driveway that they put in.
