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!

  • What are you making for the 4th of July?

    We are going to fire up the oven and make crackers, pita chips,(with some interesting dips and spreads) pizzas, paella and a peach pie. Maybe we will fire up the BBQ and grill pineapple with rum and brown sugar and top it with vanilla ice cream. Break out the homemade beer and wine and soda, sit back relax and enjoy our guests!

    Not your typical 4th of July BBQ!!

    What is on your menu?

    We had pizza tonight so we'll be ready for retained heat cooking for the 4th. In the morning we'll try a few loaves of bread, then after lunch I'm going to pop a 10 pound turkey in for dinner.

      I've only gone "white" once and cooked about 10 pizzas. We're having about 25 adults and 15 childrend over so I didn't want to try and make that many pizzas on the 2nd go around.

      Instead we'll do the standard hamburger and hot dogs and I'll fire up the oven (weather permitting) for some pizza appetizers/munchies.

      Have a safe 4th everyone.

          Well we survived out first major party with our new brick oven. We fired her up at 10:30 and the first thing in the oven was whole wheat crackers, then roasted some chicken for later, as the guests arrived we started to make the first of 6 pizzas. We also made the tomato and goat cheese dip (recipe found here in the FB online cook book) a smashing success! Put out some homemade cheese spread and roasted eggplant dip.

          After we all snacked on the some of the pizzas and dips it was time to put in the paella. We have a huge cast iron pot that just about fits in the doorway, everyone gathered round to watch as he put in all the seafood and slid it into the oven way in the back. While the paella was cooking he was still making some pizzas. Due to the fact we needed to slow down the oven for the paella the last 2 pizzas we ok did not get too crispy…ohh well. He then put the chicken back in to finish cooking.

          When he went to pull out the paella it was ohhh and ahhh time 28 people gathered round to see the unveiling it looked and smelled awesome, better still it tasted amazing!

          We then took out the coals and put them in the BBQ pit. Now into the oven went 3 pies, peach, strawberry and blueberry and he sealed up the oven. On the BBQ we grilled pineapple that had soaked in goslings dark rum and brown sugar, yumo! Took out the pies and then put in 13 sourdough rolls (this is for a party at my parent’s house tonight!)

          So she (the oven) got a work out as did we, can’t wait for the next event!

            Having done pizza the night before, I tried my first turkey, baked beans and grilled corn. Turned out good, different than Thanksgiving with the smell in the house for three hours driving you nuts. Went out for a boat ride to see every other boat house with activity and then had peach-blackberry cobbler for desert.
            I'm enjoying cooking a lot more now days

              Well this is our M and B season (muggy and buggy) so I let the oven rest. We just cooked fresh vegies inside and a my father surprised us with a slab of ribs which made the vegies taste even better.

                  We did the whole roast turkey on the 4th. (recipe in the FB Wood Fired Oven e-book)

                  RAVE reviews. Everyone loved it. 10 pound bird in 400F oven, cooked to perfection in 90 minutes. I went to pull the foil off at the 90 minute mark and we were already done!
