Feel the warmth - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Feel the warmth

    Last year I had my digital gun and would take measurements all over the place. But I would also put my hands on the oven as it heated up and cooked. Chimney, lintel, sides of the door, dome in various places, under the hearth, etc. I learned what got warm first, where it got hot, and how hot it got. Also, you put your hands on the inside for the mississippi (one-one-thousand) counts.

    This year I have no thermometer and am cooking by feel. Today is the suckling pig for Easter. It's a challenge to cook without knowing real temperatures but the prior cooking experience has helped.

    So, get close to your oven as you use it. Feel the warmth. It may help you when we hit Y2K and all the computers stop functioning. ..or your batteries are dead !

    Then again, they've cooked like this for centuries.....
