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!

      I have an axe like that. My problem is our trees have knots.

            How to chop wood without messing around. [VIDEO] is the link. Nice axe. Nice wood. Nice muscles.

            Holding the log together with a bungee cord is actually a pretty good idea.

              It would only work with girly man wood, it wouldnt work with Oz timbers where it takes 4 swipes just to split 1 little splinter off.

                Neat idea but no use with the bulk of the Aussie wood - it's way too hard.

                  My wood has knots and grain that's not that straight. Then you always have that "Y" piece. So much fun to split.

                          And Boy had me convinced it was all about the $200 Swedish ax. Turns out all he needed was a piece of chain and a bungee? I've been swindled.

                          Too bad MN wood (aka "trees that fall on newly built sheds") isn't quite so round, flat, and limbless.
