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!

    Fine load of wood. Looks like the barks slipping already so you've got a head start on drying. I know ya'all have different species and names but, that looks like a load of red oak. Maybe post oak. That's what I would have guessed if the door on the pickup was open on the other side anyways .
    I'll be glad when it is wood cutting weather here .

      The shorter the lengthsl you cut the easier they are to split. If the stuff is pretty big I like to cut it into 6" slices, leave it to season for a year then it's a piece of cake to split. Nothing worse than having a log that you can't split.

        Its mainly Yellow box with some Redgum, the Yellow box (Eucalyptus melliodora) is dense and heavy weighing about 1100 kg/m3.
        If you try to split it with a hand held wood splitter it just spits the splitter out and you can hardly see the wound you have made.

        Pic to follow of one Ive been making for the last month or so, Im so glad I got back into hydraulics again.
        It should push 30 ton or more at the piston.

        I cut it all into foot wood, that way we can use it in the lounge heater too.
