Oldies - 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 farmer stopped by the local mechanic shop to have his truck fixed.
    They couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he didn't live far and
    would just walk home.
    On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and
    a gallon of paint.
    He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and
    a goose.
    However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem - how to
    carry all of his purchases home.
    While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady
    who told him she was lost.
    She asked, 'Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane?'
    The farmer said, 'Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to
    that house. I would walk you there but I can't carry this lot.'
    The old lady suggested, 'Put the can of paint in the bucket. Carry the
    bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in
    your other hand.'
    'Why thank you very much.' he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home..
    On the way he says 'Let's take my short cut and go down this alley.
    We'll be there in no time.'

    The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, 'I am a lonely
    widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in
    the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and
    have your way with me?'

    The farmer said, 'Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of
    paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold
    you up against the wall and do that?'

    The old lady replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket,
    put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens.'
