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!

    Re: Building Construction Material

    Are you on the right forum? We burn wood here. Some would argue that it's not very eco-friendly. Who cares about the environment as long as the food is good.

          I thought our excuse was to burn the wood rather than letting it decay in the forest where it creates more carbon.

              How can that work? Don't the trees take the carbon from the atmosphere (CO2) and convert it to carbon in the wood where it stays in the ground rather than going back into the atmosphere? Unless someone comes along, picks up the wood, burns it and converts it to CO2 and CO which does go back into the atmosphere, or wait a million years until the carbon turns into coal and some fracking maniacs drive out the methane (CH4) releasing it into the atmosphere or burn the stuff to melt iron ore to build new cars rather than fixing old ones.

              Sorry too many questions.

                  It only produces methane in an anaerobic (without oxygen) decomposition.

                      There are a number of instruments available nowadays. Your engineer will surely suggest you some of those.

                        Funny you mentioned rammed earth. I've actually worked w/that and also straw bales. We built one house w/rammed earth and three w/straw bales working w/a Habitat for Humanity Affiliate in West Virginia. I have to say, it was fun and interesting.

                          Being aware of energy saving benefits, making the switch from waste producing products to more environmentally friendly products, and much more. By creating and managing a green home for you and your family to live in, not only will you be engaging in a positive atmosphere – but also you’ll be passing on the lessons .
