Visibility Question - How Dark is it in There? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Visibility Question - How Dark is it in There?

    Dumb question of the day.

    Was wondering how easy it is to see whats going on in the brick oven considering the flickering fire and 20inch door. Lets say you have 6 pizzas in there with a low fire, is it easy to monitor the cooking process? DoughPro offers a light in their oven for improved visibilty. Anyone have to strain to see in there?

    its dark. i always keep a supply of 18 X 2 X 1/2 inch pine grading stakes (sold in bundles at home depot) handy. throw one on and you 've got about 10 minutes of light.

      If your patio is well lit, that helps.

      I have a little flashlight I can hold along with the peel when you need light for more accurate browning.

      Also, Jim and Alf talked about adding a light. There is a thread on that in here somewhere.
