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!

  • Where to find fruit tree wood in Bay Area, CA.

    This is a little off topic, but I thought I would enlist the superior brain trust of this forum. I am on the search for applewood, madrone, almond, hardwood firewood for use in my WFO. Ideally, It would be nice to source the wood within a reasonable distance from The Bay Area, penninsula area, south of San Francisco and north of San Jose. Any helpful tips are appreciated. Thanks!

    You live by the largest agricultural area on the planet. If you look in the Brentwood area, I know you can find walnut, almond and peach. Another option on wood could be grape - I haven't tried that, but I think it would work well. I recall seeing apple it in the Sac area. Just check the classifieds, I'm sure it can all be found.

    Good luck,

      Ah, A little google search turned up a wood merchant who has Almond and Walnut. I may get a 1/4 cord to start and see how that goes. Never heard of grape vines, but I have heard of using old wine barrells for a nice wine flavoring.

        Wine barrels are usually made from oak - that's all over the place. There was a place in Reno that was selling grape - it sounded good to me but to stack the stuff would be insane. It grows straight for about an inch.

          Just look in your backyard, I lived in San Jose for 39 years and the Santa Cruz mountains are full of manzinita, madrone, live oak, old walnut orchards, prune trees, cherry trees, central valley has lots of fruit trees on the way to Sac. You are surrounded by resources in the Bay Area. Just be sure your getting it from a legal source.
