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!

  • Oven peak temp

    OK, finally ready to fire cure the oven....I read 200 degrees peak temp for first fire...is that A. the temp of the oven dome, B. the fire itself or C the general oven?

    Thanks...just don't want more crack than I already have...

    I didn't go through this process, but I would think it's the dome. Paper ignites at Fahrenheit 451 (great movie) so it obviously isn't the fire. If you get the dome to the temp, the rest of your build should cure quite slowly.

      Most likely C - general oven temperature...or D. Floor Temp. But can't really tell without a few more details, such as type of thermometer, thermometer placement (in the oven) and any other details you can add. A picture would be very helpful.

        In my opinion the temperature is only a rough guide. The point is to be gentle with the first fires and to make fires gradually more robust. Don't get too hung up on precision.

        Good luck!
