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!

  • newbie-removing embers after a fire

    Hello, I recently purchased a mobile oven from Fire Within. Can anyone tell me how long I can should let the embers burn before removing them to my ash can? Is it ok to let them burn out and clean the next morning? Thanks

    I wait and normaly clean mine out before the next time I fire it again, never when it still has hot embers.

      If you are into gardening the ash is a great source of potassium.
      If you can mange to remove the charcoal/embers and cool them down (metal bucket water)
      The charcoal is great bio-char for your garden

        I vote for leaving them in the oven until they are well and truly dead.
        Of course, I like baking bread, so I remove the fire while some of the embers are still going, but I'm careful to the point of paranoia.
        Most people seem to store the firewood in the oven stand, myself included. One unnoticed ember and things could get ugly........

          Get a metal garbage can with a tight fitting lid. Fashon a 1/2" metal construction cloth sieve about 1/4 of the depth from the top. Anything that falls below the cloth goes in the garden. What stays on top is called lump charcoal. Lump is great for starting your next fire, and other applications if you have other grills .

            G'day
            I the winter evening it doesn't get freezing cold but cold enough when you not used to it in the sub tropics. A tin bucket full of holes with any any excess coals is always crowded around and enjoyed by all.
            Always have a wet sack under the bucket to protect the plastic ag grate , you'll see a puff of steam if you drop a coal. No I've not dropped many

              I have a 5 gal galvanized trash can with a tight fitting lid. I usually just clean out the oven when everything is burned to ash - but when I bake bread, I have pulled out live coals and put them in there. Slam on the lid and secure, and they go out pretty quickly.
