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!

    Funny you should ask....

    When my cousin came from italy.. she told me you have to name the oven,, as they often name theirs over there.... So mine is called Big Jack.. after my uncle whose name is Gino.. (my aunt always called him Jack,,dont know why) so the oven is pretty big.. Thus Big Jack

        Not yet. But it will once it's true character has shown itself.

          No name, but on a few choice occasions I have screamed "YOU *^&%#$@!%&$!!!" (o.k., so I was actually screaming at myself...for screwing up a pizza )

            I plan on giving it a name also, once my oven is complete.

              The Red Dragon..she is made of Red brick and breaths fire...LOL! It started as a joke but we now call the backyard the Red Dragon Cafe...then bought Red Chef coats...still need to have them emrboidered with the Red Dragon Cafe...but we have been even trying to come up with a logo and can't agree on one design! The name took on a life of its own.

              I think Chef Phil misses his days as a professional chef and needed a place to call his own!

                  Early on we named our WFO "Promethesus", although that is his "formal" name. And it is definitely a "he" as opposed to a "she". We have a length of old lime kiln chain as decoration on the front as rememberance of his punishment.

                    Mine is commercial M.A.M. 505. My neighbor pulled it home on his flatbed trailer. During the trip, his diesel labored along and he remarked that it was a Big F@#%*&g Oven.
                    Thusly, it was christened the BFO.
