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'm actually close to becoming a distributor for FB, but don't have anything at the moment.
    There is someone in Duluth who is a distributor, but I don't know if he has anything on hand.
    What are your questions, or do you just want to 'see' something before purchase?

      Wow the guy who builds ovens as inexpensively as possible is becoming a distributor... I guess we can expect great service at very low overhead here in Minnesota.

        I don't have the money to buy a nice oven, but that doesn't mean I can't sell them. My main business has been hit hard (lost 80% of sales) so I needed a cheap solution... and it works very well.

          Hi Tman1,

          Are you going to be a "stocking distributor" with ovens on hand to view?

          gvanbeek might write a message on the Regional Forum asking for folks in his area who might let him look at their FB oven and ask questions.

          Cheers,
          Bob

            If by stocking you mean more than one, probably not.

              I think this is a great. I meant my previous comments as a complement to your fugal nature and ability to see a solution that fit your needs without breaking the bank. I got a great number of the items for my oven on Craigslist for that very reason. Frugal is not cheap it just makes good sense.

              Thanks for setting yourself up to provide new access locally. I am sure you will be providing great service and a unique perspective on WFO building.

                Thanks for the thumbs up. My frugal nature has been honed since the economy went south. I would prefer to have a nice, real oven as I don't get the residual heat baking that I would love to try.... a mobile unit is probably in my future too. Remember to hit me if you need some wood for the surround, you never know what I would have laying around out here.
