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!

    Is there anyone from the Mesa, Phoneix, Chandler area on here? I'm looking at building on this fall, and looking for a little help.

          Hey Pacman and others.

          Looks like I will have some excess material - a bag of dry fireclay, a bucket of wet fire clay from my cuttings and some other goodies. Any interest?

          My dome is complete and have been the IT specialist in the house tonight to dload my daughters 300 + pictures and movies from the camera. Let me see if I can get anything done this eve!

            Hi everyone,
            Newbie to this forum, and am also looking to build in fall. I live in Chandler, and would also be interested in suppliers for materials. The closer the better.

            Thanks

              Marvel (on country club in Mesa) for the fire clay, HD for fire bricks (red) or Marvel for yellow. Flue liner - marvel. HD/Lowes for the standard building stuff. Phoenix Brick for the refractory if you are going that route. Others can chime in as well. There are a few others that are here in the valley.

                Well Hey, don't forget me. I'm in Glendale but these here electronic thingys will get my helpful comments to you like I was sending them from your spare bedroom.

                Not every Home Depot carries fire brick in the valley area. Check Craigs List. Use several spellings and each time someone new will pop-up. Seems like there is no uniform spelling for fire brick, firebrick, bricks, etc. (or kiln brick) Whatever, you'll want a "fire brick" to weigh about 7.5 pounds plus or minus a few ounces.

                I've got a bag of lime for give-away, some fire clay and silica sand too.

                Cheers,
                Bob

                  Definitely hit up Craigs List, I got my exterior bricks 4 for a dollar on CL, fire brick at HD for about $1.25a piece I think. I still have about 30 Fire bricks would be willing to let them go for 20$(its a start anyway). Otherwise probably just going to use them for a fire pit.

                    Re: Phoenix AZ builders

                    Just joined, and I live in Gilbert. I have a three part plan: 1- Make my own beer. 2 - make my own pizza. 3 - repeat 1 and 2. I have completed step 1, now on to 2!

                    Would love to see someone's completed oven and get a feeling for the basics before I start my project. My intitial post is held up in admin right now, but feel free to read more about me when posted.

                    Thanks!

                      I too am in Gilbert (as are several others.) It is a good idea to see what does and does not work. If you want to see a still semi-finished oven - come on down Sat! Just PM me. There are many things I would have done differently (height, deck size, oven landing.....) However, the oven works beautifully, despite my stupidity. Be sure to make a plan, then double check it, then post it for all to help you debug and don't try to get too fancy without re-planning.

                      Chat with you later!

                            Just throwing this out there.....I have two very large bags of perlite. They are extra and I have no need for them. They are free to the first person who is willing to get them out of my garage. Just send me a personal message. I am in the SE corner of Gilbert.

                              Hello all etc...

                              I'm glad to see that we have some people in the local area that loves pizza as much as I do. Has anyone kept a budget of how much it would cost to build the oven? I know it all depends on the type of material, but I'm just looking for average numbers. I'm setting a budget, and would like to have a understand of how much this is going to cost..

                              In addition how long would it take to build one as well?
