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!

  • Curing oven over several weekends

    Hello,

    I don't have 6 straight days to stare at a fire. Is it OK to cure the oven over the course of 3 weekends? 1 burn each weekend day, increasing in temperature until the 3rd weekend?

    Thanks.

    Yes, of course. In fact it may be better because it gives the moisture left in the bottom of the dome and under the floor a chance to migrate back to the higher and drier parts of the oven.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      That's good news. I'm hoping to do it over two 3-day weekends (plus maybe a few small fires in the evenings between those weekends). Temperature estimation is going to be a problem. Maybe we need a scale of some sort:

      Day 1: feels quite warm if you put your hand inside the oven.
      Day 2: takes the hairs of your arm if you poke it into the oven.
      Day 3: takes the skin off your arm if youre stupid enough to get it inside the oven.
      Day 4: I'm not putting my arm in there!
      Day 5: small children spontaneously combust walking past oven entrance
      Day 6: Pizzas!
