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!

  • Cold hits TEXAS! Oh My!

    I am staking out my plan to see if it all fits this afternoon, and a massive COLD front has hit Texas!!!

    I am going to actually have to put on a pair of jeans just to survive this! Maybe even a long sleeved shirt or even a jacket!

    Regardless, I will brave the elements, venture out into the 25 mph north winds, and do what I can.

    Preliminary measurements yesterday look like I can do what I am planning, but it will put the oven slab closer to the extant fence than I wanted. The whole purpose of this planning exercise is to justify building the oven first, by the way, and I am very close to accomplishing that goal!

    I really feel sorry for you folks that are living between here and Canada.

    Cheers all,
    Travis

      "I really feel sorry for you folks that are living between here and Canada."

      Well according to this site:
      Detailed Weather Statistics With Radar For Rockwall And Hunt Counties, Including Caddo Mills, Quinlan, Greenville, Royse City, Fate, Texas TX USA

      On this date in 2003 you had a high of 93 F and on this date in 2006 you had a low of 41F. On top of that you are currently in a three month burn ban.

      Were you bragging up your weather on either of those dates? And what with all that stuff on the site mentioning hurricanes and tornadoes and such like? Lots of members on this forum live in areas where we only know of such things by what we see on the news.

      I'm glad you like where you live. I like where I live too. And what's with feeling sorry for folks who don't live where you do? They might all move to where you live and it could get real crowded.

      Bests,
      Wiley

        I meant no offense. I was making fun of Texans, since at the slightest puff of cold air they are asking if the schools will be closed tomorrow!

        And I like where you live too, though I have only been as close as the Oregon coast.

        I appologize if my attempt at self deprecating humor offended anybody, and "I'm sorry" was a poor choice of words.

          PLEASE Remember to wear mask when mixing any type of mortar mix:

          Causes irritation of mucous membrane and respiratory passages.
          SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
          Skin and Eye Contact: Corrosive to skin and eyes. Alkali burns to skin and eyes may result if contacted.
          Skin Absorption: Systematically toxic concentrations will probably not be absorbed through skin.
          Ingestion: Single dose oral toxicity is low. No hazards anticipated from ingestion due to industrial exposure.

          MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
          Persons with lung disease should avoid inhalation.


          Cough, dyspnea (breathing difficulty), wheezing, decreased pulmonary function, progressive respiratory symptoms (silicosis), irritation eyes and potential occupational carcinogen.

            Since we are dissing locations sounds like that bag of mortar was headed for California.
