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!

  • Ash vent

    James,
    I was wondering why your specs for the Pompeii Oven did not include the ash vent? Do you feel it is worthwhile to install as you build the oven? Or is it more trouble than it is worth? I haven't been thru all of your various posts, so if you have already addressed this subject, just refer me to the correct one and i will read it.
    Thanks,
    Jim Bob

    Re: Ash vent

    I'll hop in here for James. He built two barrel vault ovens complete with ash drop, and found that he never used them, and that the hole in the middle of the oven entry was actively in the way. In addition, most of us want to use the space directly below the entry for wood storage, not the ash can.

    If your primary use of your oven is for retained heat baking, where the coals need to be removed in the middle of every use, an ash drop might be more useful.
