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!

  • my new oven in progress summer 08

    well work season is over its time for comp. time, started my oven in April sorry no photos of base construction had a few miss calculations and crazy chimney ideas but finally resolved it, this forum has been a good source of information thanks for all your different posts that I have learned different ideas a great bunch of PIZZAIOLIS and good first time builders. I was born in Bari Italy and was raised around a brick oven (my father was a 30year exp. baker) loved the smell of fresh bread for my first 11 years of my life, then my father to give up baking bread and move to America. I've often visited the rest of my older siblings in Italy, and the first thing I wanted to eat was a good WFO PIZZA the aroma is unforgettable the taste undeniable Italian, and now with my new WFO I can have these taste buds live again and the bread OH MY GOD fabulous,I woke up the kid in me, well I'm going to try to post some pictures finally.

            Looks really good! Can you give the specifics about the turkey? I'm having fear of cooking turkey. I have a gigantic one for Christmas...

              Looks great! Very clean work, tight joints, round dome. Now just enjoy the fruits of your labor.

                  a 10 lb. turkey 3hrs but 2 1/2 hrs would be good at 3hrs inside temp. was 220 all its needed is 180 -190 , but it was the juiceyst turkey ever. my wife did no trust cooking the turkey in the WFO so she dicided to make another 10lb. in the conventional oven. mine was a hit ,my fahter in law being an old Italian never much ate the turkey, but this time he had double, this man is a very finikey eater ,said this was the best he's had celebrating Thanksgiving since he came to America (35yrs),,any way it was cooked at 400F give or take a few fired up oven at 700F air temp waited 1 hr. raked out 3/4 of hot coals placed 4 soaked hickory chips on coals placed turkey uncovered until it browned than covered it for the remainder, it was stuffed and layed it on a bed of celery and cut up onions coated it with olive oil of cuorse sea salt and fresh ground pepper fresh sage inside bird and a few sprigs of rosemary on the outside with the vegtlbl.

                          Thanks for the turkey info! I think I'm going to try a practice turkey before I go for the big one.

                            Mavano,
                            I think I'll be starting next spring. What depth is your foundation? We're in the same area (NW burbs of Chicago) and have read different opinions.
                            Thanks
