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!

  • Casa 110 installation at our cabin

    I've started documenting the construction of our Casa 110 on Stuart Island in the US San Juan Islands. The crate arrived today in Seattle, and over the past two weeks we put the foundation in place:

    Next step is to transport the oven components (by truck, then ferry, then private barge, then truck again) to our cabin site. More pictures to come...

    The Forno Bravo Casa installation directions have been very useful in getting to this stage. The photo gallery has a little bit of a 'story' to the stages, so I won't repeat that info here.

    Interesting touch on the hearth Marc. Are you going to build an enclosure around it or make an igloo? Those pictures bring back a lot of sweaty memories. The next time I sail in the San Juans I'll keep my eyes peeled for smoke. Anywhere near Reid Hbr?

      We moor in Reid Harbor, but our cabin is across the island, just SW from the Turn Point lighthouse; we face due west.

      The initial plan is to use an igloo enclosure perhaps with a large shed roof that would allow for a covered cook/prep area around the oven. I don't need the mass of a large enclosure nor do I have the materials on-site to do a gable style. But, the cool thing is that by starting with the Igloo we'll have options!
