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!

  • Chicken and Bread

    Cooked beer can chicken and made some bread after having pizza. The chicken and bread were cooked the next morning. All good!



    Bread was peasant type loaves with garlic and herbs.

    I guess you cleaned the oven floor and put the bread directly on the floor? I have bread twice and failed twice...
    Where can I find logs? I need more!
    Finishing the WFO will come after the barn is completed http://flinthousebarn.co.uk/

      GrahamG, I cooked the bread right on the floor of the oven. After clearing out most of the ashes, I usually just use the large pizza peel and slap it on the floor where I'm going to place the bread to make sure the floor is clean. What kind of problems are you having with your bread?

            Here's a link to another site that has the bread recipe.

            No-Knead European Peasant Bread - Recipes

            This is from the "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day" book and I added some garlic & herb mixture from King Arthur flour. I really like the book because of the many, easy recipes that usually seem to turn out well. I didn't add any steam to the WFO when I cooked the bread, haven't really figured out an easy way to do this that works but would probably make it even better?

            I've also done this bread before by just adding various herbs and garlic (powder or fresh) depending on what we have around the house. I think it's the small amounts of rye and wheat flour that make it work. You will need to adjust the cooking times/temps for your own oven.

            The dough is easier to work with after having been refrigerated at least over night but the ones for the picture in the original post were baked right after the initial rise. I had forgotten to make some dough after we made pizza so woke up to a nice, warm oven without anything ready to go.

            Thanks for the positive feedback, thinking I'll make this bread again to use for Christmas turkey and ham leftover sandwiches.

              Overcooked then undercooked! I have just got a temp probe so should know better and I plan on baking this weekend. I left the coals in first - overcooked! Then I cleaned them out and mopped the floor with a damp cloth - undercooked. The problem was I did not know was the internal temp was - but I will this weekend!

                  GrahamG- good news on the bread progress! The Beer Can Chicken has become an easy favorite for us, just about any time we make pizza, I try to cook a chicken the next morning. We keep them in the fridge for a couple of days and then heat them up for an evening meal- just like the ones you can bring home from the store but better! We like sandwiches at lunch time and it's a real treat to use homemade bread most of the time.
