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!

    I recently got one of these Barbecue Grill, Camping Beach Parks, Fire Pit, Campfire Cooking Grill and would like to use it for cooking. What tips can you give me for cooking over an open fire pit?

    Re: Open Fire Cooking

    Hi Jaclinto and welcome to the forum,
    Boy have you got a lot to learn.
    may I suggest that you plan a trip out to Australia and link up with an outback camping Tag-along-tour trip where you will really experience the delights of campfire cooking.
    Nothing compares to the solitude of being hundreds of kilometers from anywhere, sitting around either a roaring or a glowing campfire enjoying fresh cooked damper (traditional Aussie bread), a lamb roast with all the trimmings and a few glasses of your favourite brew, sitting back watching the spectacular milk way with your beloved and friends/mates.
    That encourages me to plan another trip soon!
    What do you want to cook?
    I will see if I can source some Outdoor Aussie cookbooks for you once I know your preferences.
    You might do a google search for outback cooking cookbooks! Try "outback cooking cookbooks" for a starter!
    The fire containers that you showed will limit your ability to cook a roast if you are just going to cook with the flames, rather than using substantial coals to heat your camp oven/bedourie/cooking kettle, a bit like a barbeque.
    We tend to cook away from the actual fire by removing a shovel or two of red hot coals and cooking on them besides the campfire rather than in the fire itself. We have devices to cook in where hot coals are placed on top as well just like an oven and you can cook anything you like (camp oven/bedurie/cooking kettle). It is a real experience. I always carry a bedourie on every 4WD trip that I do. That said I have a roast meal with my fellow travellers at least twice a week - fantastic food in such remote locations. See:

    I will keep an eye open with this posting.
    Regards

    Neill
