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!

    Re: Hi From Houston!

    Greetings from San Antonio!

    Be warned, while this is a great site, it is addictive and probably needs a disclaimer from the Surgeon General's office. Something like, "This site has been known to cause scrounging and hoarding of rocklike materials, prolonged physical labor involving cement, rocks, and shovels, prolonged discussion of estoteric details far beyond the perception of ordinary humans, and addiction to WFO pizzas, bread, and other foodstuffs."

    Having lived in Houston for 30 years before SA, let me comment up front - if you build an oven I would STRONGLY encourage you to enclose it and put a roof over it to ensure it is well protected from the rains you get (and that would include the horizontal surface that projects beyond the oven - no exposed horizontal surfaces where water can seep under your oven floor! From a voice of experience where we don't get nearly as much rain as you do!)

    Welcome aboard!
