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!

          Took me a little time to figure it out too. Actually, to be honest, every time I fire it up I learn something else.

          I have done the "not hot enough" and the "too hot" where it was burning the crusts after about 10 seconds. I am also getting a better feel on when to add more wood to keep the temps stable and I found that splitting some thin pieces of wood, 2-3 inches thick and about a foot long, is a good size to just add every now and then. They burn faster and throw off heat quicker than the big, thick pieces of log, but obviously they don't last as long.

              Just noticed your from Andover. I grew up in Greendell.

              Still learning myself it's a never ending process (or perhaps I'm a slow learner and that' s why it's taking so long) ;-)

                Old Italian trick. Cast some semolina on to the centre of the floor after raking the coals aside and blowing the ash away. It turns black suddenly. 2 secs = too hot, 3 secs perfect, 4secs = not hot enough. It impresses guests too. It makes them think you know what you're doing.
                Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
