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: even more photo's

      Good work. Where are you in N Mich? I am from Cadillac but live in Kalamazoo and am working on sealing my structure over a 42" Pompeii. I still have a lot to learn on temp as well. Burnt my first attempt at bread last night.

      Best of luck,
      Tim

        Re: even more photo's

        I am north west of Traverse city in Leelanau county. I am done cooking using the oven for the year. I think I used it about a dozen time before the weather turned. I had a number of pizza parties. I only cooked bread once and I also did a chicken which turned out very nice.

        I found that I like a 3 minute pizza the best. I am still learning how to keep the temp up by stirring the coals. In the past I always made a slightly thicker crust. 13 oz dough for a 12" pie. For the brick oven I now make a 10-11 oz dough and stretch it to 14"+

        It seems that my base cools off fast then I like when I am cooking 5 to 6 pizzas. I think I am going to try adding a layer of lose bricks in the oven next summer. Only 8 bricks though, just enough to cook one pizza and see if that makes a difference. Going with the barrel style mine is more of a baking oven. I love the heat retension that my oven has. I look forward to slow roasting something over night next summer.

        good luck

                Well Chip my sister has told me we will snow shoe back to the Oven this winter a do a bonfire and fire up the oven.

                My oven is not at my home, it is on the back 25 where we hope to build our next home in a few years if we ever sell the present home. I don't keep the driveway plowed during the winter. I almost wish I had built it at our present house as it was a joy to build and might have help in selling our house.
