First overnight cook - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • First overnight cook

    Well, today I had two firsts.

    I cooked beef short ribs over around 3 1/2 hours in the WFO. Kept a nice little fire going the whole time and threw in a second pan with asparagus in the last half hour or so. They were excellent!

    Second, after i swept out most of the coals, I put in a terra-cotta pot filled with cannalini beans. Soaked them overnight, and put them in with water, rendered down pancetta, peppercorns, and fresh sage. Can't wait till morning to see what I got!

    With a small live fire going were you able to maintain a certain temp range for the entire low and slow cook?

      I kept it at about 450-500 with a slow flame going. Just put a log on every 45 minutes or so. My beans were undercooked though! I just don't think I got enough heat in the oven to last through the night, and my door is far from insulated. Think I really gotta get the oven hot and maitain a strong burn for at least 2-3 hours before. Can use the residual heat to overnight it. And, insulate the door of course. My internal temp was 185 on the floor after 12 hours...just not high enough.

        Thanks Ernie, that's good information on the beans. I have the same problem, not well insulated door.
