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!

  • Smoking out the Neighbors in Carlsbad Ca.

    Almost finished, actually my neighbor peeked over the fence to tell me he loves the smell of the smoke.

    Had the similar experience. Livining in the outskirts of NYC. First fire I lit I started having panic attacks from smoking out the neighbors and fearing they will call the Fire Department. All turned out fine, and for the next 3 days had neighbors telling me they loved the smell. and they want an invite.

      Pass out a pizza now and then to your neighbors and I promise you won't get any complaints.

            Oh Trust me! first gathering I have once the oven is complete will be the "Neighbor appreciation Gathering!" for Pizza and Wine... But lucky for me they are good Neighbors! they have put up with a LOT of noise coming from that Brick cutter! and now smoke! Like I said here in the City where the lots are only 40' wide.. your neighbors are a little tooo close!

                I agree a little pizza and treats make good neighbors, keep practicing with the fire, before long you will be able to get a minimal amount of smoke. I am still in the hit and miss stage as far as smoke goes. You could also surprise your neighbors with their favorite item, turkey, ribs, steaks and such. I am pondering a bring your own entree item night to share and have them cook it in a 3/4 fired oven. In your third photo is that a steel plate or plywood for your IT on the floor of your oven under the fire?

                    It was the plywood template. Pics are out of order. That was one of the earlier fires.
                    My political approach is to ask them for an ethnic recipe that we can try. So far i was offered a Russian lamb dumping and an Italian stew... We'll see...when the oven is done.

                    I apologize for hijacking this thread. I will start a new thread once i get home.
