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!

  • My oven tips

    Playing around last night after cooking pizza with a very hot oven. I threw on a piece of oak which had been oven dried literally bone dry and it created a lot of smoke and blackened the dome. When it was gone put on a piece of air dried oak and it cleared the dome and no smoke.
    Lesson don't over dry the wood.

    I recently changed our electric oven and used the oven door as a blast door for the wfo. Raised it it about 10mm off the floor for air flow. Works great and I can see the fire through the glass.

    I use an old cast iron grate from the fire as a log holder.. Great for the fire, air flow etc and very clean as it creates very little ash.

    Re: My oven tips

    Interesting, I'm on day 8 of my curing burns and I have been using kiln dried Oak. The oven refuses to burn clean although I'm pretty sure I am about at the point that this should be happening. Maybe I am experiencing the same thing you are...
