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!

  • Satellite imagery of my oven

    I've been waiting for Google Maps to update their satellite imagery of our town for a while (the last set of imagery was at least 3-4 years old).

    The other day I looked and saw my WFO, which was a good visible landmark to know that the imagery was new.

    Anyhow, here's a screenshot. The oven is the white, round thing near the center of the photo.

    I realize that this is probably a silly thing to share. : )

    Not silly at all. It's refreshing to see (literally) another WFO owner out there unencumbered with the nuisance of a complaining neighbor who doesn't understand the reason behind the smoke.

      Steven,
      Very nice, I just checked mine and it doesn't show. Looks like a beautiful setting to live.
      Enjoy,
      Eric

        My oven hasn't been built yet according to my satellite image.

          Cool, I have been waiting for Google to update our neighborhood. We are close-by in Northern Virginia so I just looked and sure enough, there's our oven. Terrible picture unfortunately so here's a better one...

            Boy do I hear that. I'm not sure what to do about my neighbor. She's passive-aggressively threatening to sue me because she thinks I'm getting her lemon-yellow house dirty (which I might be except that she cites as evidence not only the downwind areas, but also back walls off to the side way out of the way of the wind).

            Ugh.

              It's funny that I'm not the only person who did this. I've been waiting and watching as well, and yes my oven is finally on there. It's the strange shape right in the center, dark blob with a light counter on its left side at the right end of our lawn (and "2010" watermarked over the bottom edge, sigh).

                Judging from the expanse of open space between dwellings, (not too common here in southern california) it appears quite improbable that your oven could envelop an adjoining house with enough smoke to cause 'soot damage' to all sides.
