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!

  • Paul's Oven

    Hi

    I know it is not a Pompeii style oven but I thought I would share with you the progress on my RADO style home built oven



    As you can see it is made out of second hand materials (to a very tight budget -- as set by my wife) I have also been given a deadline of 8 weeks so that we can host her works Xmas Party.

    I have very limited building skills but have found this project relatively easy (but physically hard)

    regards ... Paul

    Nice oven. I almost went with the Rado style myself. I bought his CD and was very encouraged by what I saw and read. Building the dome in the pompeii style was a wonderful experience and I'm glad I went that way.

    Now that I've used my oven a little though, I am finding that I may need to build a custom peel of some sort so I can get ash out of the back of the oven more easily. But only because I keep pushing food into the ash.

      Git your Pizza Peels...

      Tarik,

      In the word's of the Click and Clack Brothers on PBS Car Talk, this is a shameless commercial posting. :-) You can buy peels, brushes, rakes and shovels from Forno Bravo. Frankie G noted on his web site that GI Metal makes great oven tools -- and that is who we sell. Made in Florence, and stocked in Healdsburg.

        James, you guys are SO generous with your advice and with hosting this FREE information site that you deserve to make the occasional commercial post AND you deserve our support with the occasional purchase, ESPECIALLY if we have used your advice to build our own Pompeii oven!

        In my case, I already have a long peel and a long handled brush, but I already find that I will need to pick up a long peel with a small diameter circle on it, and a few other accessories to help manage the fire.

        One limitation with scooping ashes out of a HOT oven is getting all the ashes away from the round back wall so that if you screw up with the peel, you're not pushing the food into the ashes and ruining the taste.

        Of course, we've been brushing them off and eating things anyway when they go haywire like this.
