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!

  • Slow roasting a pig in the Casa 110????

    I was interested on roasting a small pig slowly in a 43" diameter oven( Casa 110 sized oven). I was thinking around 20-30lb pig. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Hmmm? The smallest we ever had was 80 lbs. and it was pretty long. (Caja China Box)

    If it fits, I suppose if you build up the heat and remove the coals, it would work.

    I have a huge oven but the mouth is too small for anything bigger than a turkey.

    Damn! Take some pictures if you do it. I like magic tricks.

      Look up Xabia Jim's threads in the photo section. He cooked a small pig in the WFO. It looks wonderful. I don't know if he included instructions anywhere. (Its on page 2 I think under X of the photos.)

        I searched and could not find anything from Xabia. Can you post a link?. I searched pretty thoroughly before posting the thread and found nothing aside from some posts of suckling pigs. I was hoping for some input on slow roasting a bigger pig for a bigger party.

          This was for 10 pounds.

          I have seen whole pigs done for 12hours over fire and I think that's about the lengh of time for a luau pig buried in the sand.

          If you can fit the 30 pound one in your oven, I'd go for the slow oven for 8 hours but check meat temp so as not to overcook it.

          Come back with info and pics if you do it!

            It looked like a suckling pig. "Cochinilla" I think it is called. I can't help you much more than that, but maybe a butcher could help you. I'm thinking get the oven up high for several hours, scrape out the coals, shove the pig in at about 500 or so and let it stay for many hours. I would put it over some kind of pan to catch drippings and figure out at way to raise it slightly off the hearth. And have a way to turn it. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out. You can be the guina pig.....ha.

              Hi hi,

              If you can get in, I'd use a roasting pan. Cover it up, close the door and let it roast in its own juices. You're basically cooking it in a very large slow cooker.
