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!

      It will give Jamie Oliver's pizza oven company a run for their money then! He added his name to the ovens and tripled the prices over night.

        That event was back in 2010 and not sure if FB ovens have held an event in the UK since?.(i'd love to attend if there's a 2014 event) I see that Amodio LLP seem to be the main supplier of Forno Bravo ovens in the UK although I know that Alf Armstrong of Armstrong ovens have been promoting and installing FB ovens for many years now (I think). There's not many professional oven builders in the UK but I would class Alf as an "old school" Artisan of wood-fired oven building. Apart from being an installer of commercial wood-fired ovens he has build some excellent back to basic self builds.

        Everybody has their own opinions of JO, but I know since putting his name on the old "Orchard Ovens" range their sales have spiraled. Got to see some of the JO range of ovens at last years "Grillstock" festival in Bristol. A few of us WFO enthusiasts meet up every year and by chance had half a dozen V.I.P. tickets for the festival from JO. He wasn't there but had a good chat with Andrew Manciochi...founder of Orchard and JO ovens.

        There seems to be a bottomless pit of grill events in the UK.....would be nice to see more Wood-fired ovens at these events.

          Terry,

          We bought our oven from Andrew back in 2009. Moved 200 miles and forgot about it!! Then Andrew phoned up and told me it needed to be delivered as he'd sold out to JO. I had done the same in 2009 - sold a business and moved to Cambridgeshire.

          So I took delivery in 2010 and since then I have never looked back, we have this model
          Ovens for pizza VALORIANI - Professional Ovens

          Andrew rarely pushed the sales in Preston, he seemed more focused on his Pizza Restaurant!

          I do believe a lot of their installations of JO ovens are in restaurant. As I have a share in 2 restaurants.
