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!

  • First proper full temperature firing

    Had a friend around at the weekend for moral support on getting my oven up to full temperature. Managed to get it fully white for the first time & cooked lots of nice pizzas
    Oven was inspired by the guidelines on this site.

    A few more flames out the front than there should have been, but it's a learning experience..

        Nice, i still have not fully fired my oven, like the scare fire, 900F+ ( even though it has turned white), i feel like if i create a scorching fire i will crack the hell out of the refractory.

          Not sure that it is necessary to raise the oven to kiln temps but when it does get going like that it should handle it if you used the right materials.

          A good door makes it a much more versatile thing.
          Cheers ......... Steve

            Ditto - If you got hot enough to go white and cook pizzas, you are pretty much cured

              Yup, working on making a door, rendering the outside, and turning the steps slope into a tiled slope.
