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!

  • Cooking while Curing..

    I'm anxious to start cooking something in my oven and I was wondering if there were any suggestions for recipes I could try once I get the oven to X degrees..

    Between 200-300 throw a pot roast in there for a few hours. At 300-400F you can do the beer can chicken (see the beer can chicken thread).

    Think about it like you would your indoor oven. What would you cook in your indoor oven at "X" degrees?

    Have fun!!

        We do pot roast after almost every pizza bake. On the 2nd morning after pizza, the oven is around 250F. Perfect for an all day roast.

        I put in a hunk of cheap beef and all the leftover pizza veggies.

        For convenient liquid and seasoning; a bottle of marinade is all you need.

        You can also use leftover wine, a can of beer or Coke. If I use one of these, I'll also add cracked pepper, garlic, a packet of onion soup mix and whatever else gets my attention from the spice cabinet.

        Add cut up potatoes, carrots, onions, mushrooms, whatever sounds good.

        Put a lid on it and stick it in the oven. I'll usually put mine in around 9am and it's ready by 5:00pm. We never have leftovers.
