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!

    Everywhere I go - there they are. Notice the vent hole in the top back of the oven. I don't know if this was capped off after the fire had died down or not. I hope that mine will look a little better after 80-90 years, not that I will be around to use it.

      Fantastic piece of history - thanks for sharing.

      I wonder if the last thing baked in it caused the damage (which looks quite extensive and not like a gradual decline). I bet it has a lot of stories to tell!!!

        Another nice find. Looks like an earhquake. Is there siesmic activity in Nevada, severe frost heave? Something made the earth move under this one.

          We are the third most active state (maybe tied w/ Hawaii). And it does get cold.

            Maybe all our ovens will be historic sites someday!

              Uhmmm... Maybe my little hairline cracks aren't so bad after all. That one in the back is a whopper!

                Thats funny Ken - when I saw it, I thought "cracks happen". But this puppy has some issues. They may have got a bad bag of Refmix or Heatstop.

                  Les, you obviously didn't follow the same build method, they used juuuuust a tad more mortar in their joints.
                  Guess there is a lot to be said for the cut to fit method, although, it is amazing gravity has not taken over and that large chunk has not fallen out.
                  If ou go back, be sure to watch out for the rockslides.....you may loose a foot.

                    Les -- it was there in your neighborhood all along. What a great find. Thanks! We're lucky, the Pierini brothers didn't have the Internet; they had to do it from memory.
