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!

  • Vermiculite/Perlite in South Florida

    Guys, any leads on where to find this stuff in big bags in SoFla?
    Having little luck, only found it at the hydroponic stores charging around $50 per bag.
    Thanks!

    Try some of the independant plant nurseries. They use it as an additive for potting soil and usually have the best deal. I bought several bags over the course of last year. The first few (4 cubic feet) bags I purchased were in the 18 dollar range. The last, I think, was nearing 25 bucks. It is my understanding that there have been a few mine closures, so the price of this stuff may be getting out of hand.

            Thanks for the price breakdown Gulf, it's good to know prices have gone up, will put my expectations on check.
            Will check masonry suppliers Tscarborough, I called a few general construction suppliers and they had no idea what I was talking about.

                    Try Elders, they stock vermiculite, not sure about perlite.
