Sightings.... - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

    (are you out there?)

    how about a new section for WFO related sightings?

    members can post things they see on the net for other members....like tile saws or diamond blades on sale.....pizza ingredients....used fire tools on EBAY and other EBAY auction stuff of interest....anything neat that other members might be interest in!

    I'll second that. Fire bricks for the newbies to buy off ebay or ellsewhere. Saw some pizza ovens the other day also.
    A good idea for all, even us established oldies who might be looking for something special.
    Especially for different places around the world.

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

          Be careful: I googled around, and this may not be an asbestos-free product.

          Asbestos Liabilities


          Numerous claims have been asserted against Owens Corning alleging personal injuries arising from inhalation of asbestos fibers. Virtually all of these claims arise out of Owens Corning’s manufacture, distribution, sale or installation of an asbestos-containing calcium silicate, high temperature insulation product, the manufacture and distribution of which was discontinued in 1972. Owens Corning received approximately 18,000 asbestos personal injury claims during 2000, approximately 32,000 such claims during 1999 and approximately 69,000 such claims during 1998. Owens Corning cautions that it has limited information about many of such claims, and the actual numbers of claims asserted remain subject to adjustment.
