Default Re: Poll: How many ovens have you built?

Thanks for the overview James. With your permission, I would like to add some bullets to your list which I think are really really big accomplishments
  • Selflesly shared your knowledge with all & sundry
  • Put your IP out for free so that WFO idiots like me can also join in
  • Enabled, drove & shaped the forum to huge proportion (so much so it got a life of its own )
  • Inspired so many others! One can say you rekindled a trade which in SA at least was becomming reserved for restaurants & cheapy imitations

Thanks James!

Thanks Dolf,

Ya know. I think the best thing we've done is help get people excited about wood fired ovens and cooking. :-)

I have built one, will build another couple either for friends or relatives or if I ever move away from this oven.

Totally agree with Grimaldi.
As James mentioned many moons ago, he has had a successful career in an entirely different area of expertise. Everything FB related has come from his personal passion of WFO cooking; taking what is a backyard weekend diversion for most of us and digging in, getting dirty, starting an entirely new cooking revolution, and sharing it all with with the world.
Probably the most impressive resume in the WFO community, and what I am sure is a profitable and succussful business venture. Damn, I think this man is living the American dream.
As for the poll, built one oven and modified/improved same oven.......yet I feel like an expert of the trade from what I have learned on this forum. Thanks to all.

Yes RT, Isn't it amazing that we can have so much confidence despite very limited experience.
I am probably like a child proudly cycling but actually its the FB side-wheels that keep me up ! :-)

Hey,
Built 1 for our family 2 years ago, thanks to this incredible online resource.
Starting my 2nd today, for a landscape customer, (I am a landscape contractor).
Hope to build many more.

I have to say, I find this forum both intimidating, but also inspiring. The workmanship in the various projects is breathtaking.

We only have one WFO...but if I had my time again, or if we ever moved and I had to build a new one, I would build the same one I have now but include a built in fire pit/ charcol gril in the base.

I am using an FB remote thermometer!

But yes, I agree. Bit late for this one, (it's a learning curve), but I will know better for the next one.

Meanwhile, FB needs a Canadian rep and/or supply!

Building my first and hopefully, not my last!! I expect that I'll get to help a few friends and neighbors and of course, if we ever move, this is expected to be the 'must-have' backyard item!
