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!

    Cool! Did you use vermiculite? And where is the picture?!

            Hi,Frances!
            Please bear with me as this business of uploading is new to me.
            As you can see, I did use vermiculite and perlite in a separate layer.
            Also I did include an ash slot .
            Thanks for checking our progress!

              You're doing very well... I only made that remark, because some builders think that once you've seen one oven stand you've seen them all and so don't bother to post pics of the "boring" bits.

              This of course isn't true at all - any progress you make, you'll find lots of people here who want to see the pictures!

                Konnichi wa, Morishita-San,

                Nice progress on the base. Glad you got the picture posting process worked out.

                I like the glass block on the base. I have a feeling we are going to see more bases on the site with glass block.

                How is your insulation working out? Is it crumbly or pretty tough?

                    Hello,Christo san!
                    Thanks, for your words of encouragement!
                    Well, I can say that our vermiculite/perlite insulation is not as crumbly
                    as it may look,it actually turned out quite tough,i believe it will do the job.
