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!

    I noticed his absence as well. Probably depressed because the Sacramento River's salmon season will be closed, for all intents an purposes. Miss ya Dusty!

      Yep. What's he up to?

      At least Jeff always tells us why he's not on the forum...

        Hang on, Dusty's last post is only seven days old - he's probably just on holiday and forgot to tell us.

          He is crazy busy with work and backyard projects. He will be at my party. Hey, maybe I should try being absent for a while?

            Thanks all, I missed you too. No holiday, I'm afraid, just been working more and sitting at the computer less. And as Acoma said, I have resumed construction on my outdoor kitchen. I did the electrical last week, started on the countertops on Sunday, and plumbed it yesterday.

            George, CFG still hasn't finalized a plan on how to save our fishery. I am more afraid that they will restrict or prohibit commercial fishing. Those guys have families to support. I am just havin' fun - and not that much the last couple of years.

            And you still got that PBR coming Dave. Keeping it cold for you. Get out here soon... they don't keep forever!

            I took some pics today. I decided to make the counter tops of old pool table slates as I have lots of them.

            Please excuse the mess. I need to get into the habit of cleaning up after each day like they taught us in shop class. Anyone old enough to remember shop class?

              Wow! Two posts by Dusty! Too cool!

              Tell me, what's the arch on the backside of the kichen for? A pass-through for firewood? It all looks really nice.

              I can't tell you how much I hate to hear the news of the Sac's King Salmon crash. It pretty much kills the season up and down the coast. We were supposed to make a trip to Neah Bay in June for Salmon, but the season is in jeapordy here as well. Puget Sound's runs have been teetering for years. The Springer season on the Columbia here was just 10 days long because the Willamette in OR's runs were forcast to be really low as well. Global cooling in the NW is killing everything! What a crappy Spring!

                Back East is talking about short crab collections. The sea is not always full of life, huh?

                  Three reasons really.Third, I thought it might be handy to be able to access the storage from the rear. Second, I thought that I should have something structural on the back to break up the monontany of the solid brick wall - looks, I guess. First, when I drew the plans, I realized that if I made a back opening, I wouldn't have to cut any cinder blocks. I could just set them there and fill every other cavity. That seemed important at the time.

                  So happens that there was a big salmon story on the 5 o'clock news tonight. Still no final CFG plan, but suggested that the situation was dire and that no one can figure out exectly what has happened to the fishery.

                  I don't believe it is a mystery at all. And I don't think the biologists do either. There is so much water being diverted to So. Cal through aqua ducts and canals that even the river doesn't know which way to go. Add that to all the water that is diverted for agriculture and I find it amazing that ANY water, AT ALL, is able to flow back to the ocean for the salmon to run.

                  And no two biologists that I have ever talked to can agree on why and how the salmon return to the exact place of their origin. Makes sense to me that we have obviously upset some balance.

                  Recently too. Five years ago I was catching limits and releasing them. Wore out my smoker and had to replace it in '03.

                  OK....time to get off the soap box.
