***Happy Thanksgiving*** - 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!

      A turkey pageant would be lovely, but I'm at my parent's house... no wfo.

      We ARE, however, having a turkey which was bagged by my dear husband. Not very large, but it will be very good eating. Maybe next year we'll have a wild turkey cooked in the wfo! (oh, the places one could go with that line....)

        Re: ***Happy Thanksgiving***

        This year I took a slightly different approach to the turkey. I've heard for years about brining, but my refrigerator isn't friendly to a five gallon bucket of brine. I read about a new technique, involving dry salting rather than brining, in this article:

        RECIPE: Roast salted turkey -- latimes.com

        I bought the turkey (pretty big, 20lbs) six days before the day, and defrosted it in the fridge for three days. Then I heavily salted it inside and out with ordinary seasoned salt. It sat in the refrigerator for another three days, salted, in a plastic bag, then today I rinsed it thoroughly, stuffed it, and put it in the oven on a rack in a roasting pan.

        The thanksgiving schedule:

        4:00 PM Wed. build first fire
        6:00 Wed make pizza
        8:00 Wed shovel out fire
        9:00 Wed door on
        7:30 AM Thur New Fire built
        10:30 Shovel out fire
        11:30 door on
        12:30 turkey in at 450f (oven thermometer in center of floor)
        2:30 rolls and casserole in at 350f.
        3:30 turkey out at 325f. (It read 155f internal temp, although my digital thermometer may be low)

        The salting made a tasty, moist bird. Like baking, it just takes some pre-planning, it's not difficult.
