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!

    We moved into our new house complete with a Forno Bravo pizza oven.
    The oven was installed more than a year ago and has been sitting there looking brand new - never fired.

    Would someone point me in the right direction on this forum where I can read up on the proper curing process so we can get the oven up to temperature? Links welcome! I did a search and little showed up - I assume I am using the wrong search words.

    Also - the fact that the oven has been dry for over a year, does that factor into the cure process or does it need the increasing heat to truly drive out the moisture?

    Thanks for any help - can't wait to move onto the recipes part of this forum!

    If in doubt, go thru the curing process:

        Why did the previous owners never fire it up?

          I wasn't clear - we are the original owners. We built the house and during construction we had the pizza oven from Forno Bravo installed as per the plans.

          Installing the oven was relatively early in the construction so that it would be incorporated into the house facing outward toward our outdoor kitchen. Now that we have finished the house and moved in, we are ready to 'cure' it and use it.

          But before I do - I thought best to check with 'experts' on this site for experience so I can avoid Newbie mistakes.
