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!

  • Good Eats on a Sunday Night

    Dessert for tonight and lunch for tomorrow.

    Leftover dough: it had already been frozen once; no way am I going to throw it away!

    The dessert pizza is simply cherry pie filling in a can spread on a crust. After cooking sprinkled with powdered sugar. Tasted great!

    My 17 year old son whipped up a couple of pepperoni and mozz calzones for our lunch tomorrow. The over will be at about 350F or so at lunch time. Perfect for reheating!

    The dark picture is a 6 second exposure of the calzones cooking.

      Ken....Looks Awesome! Makes me hungry and wanting to get mine done. I am getting closer to the dome which scares me. I really like what you did with yours, but the cuts seem too complicated for the average person. How did you figure all your cuts? And where did you get your plug for the top?
      Thanks,

      GT

        Hi George,

        I can assure you, I'm a pretty average person. I'm comfortable using power tools, but I'm not any sort of craftsman.

        How did you figure all your cuts? And where did you get your plug for the top?
        Here's a post that explains how I determined the cut angles for the left and right sides of each brick.
        http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...stem-2670.html

        To make the bottom cuts, I used a foam board cut to the desired interior profile to determine the angle of the cuts.

        The "plug" is just bricks cut to shape. When I got to the point that I needed a key stone, I cut a template out of cardboard, did some tracing and cut the pieces from the firebrick. I made some sloppy cuts assuring the keystone was oversized, then trimmed it down here and there until it fit just right.

        The trick is to take your time (easier said than done!).

            Looks tasty.

            Try some Ricotta in your calzone some time.

            Yum!

            Your oven pic looks great!

              Oh, I LOVE Ricotta in calzones; only way to really make them. Since this was an impromptu pizza bake, we didn't have too much on hand other than the basics.

              Still made really fine calzones!
