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!

    In another thread (that I'm trying not to derail) I promised to look through my book marks for FB threads related to cob ovens when I got my desktop back. Got desktop, forgot thread. Anyway, here are the few I had that were actually about cob and not merely someone mentioning cob (you know, some obsessed person who is always bringing it up... okay, me. ). One is just me talking to myself - but the link in it is pretty good. The Texas one is the best!

    Re: Cob Links

    Hey, I have just recently started a cob/mud oven. It has been fun and satisfying working the clay/soil. It is satisfying that it is so cheap but labor intensive. Check out the link below. Soon, I will pull out the sand form and dry and light small fires and most assuredly fill the cracks and finally insulate.

    I already have thoughts of building a small cob sauna and/or small study to get away to!!!

      Great links Archena. For anyone building in clay I would (and continue to) recommend Simon Brookes's blog, with a PDF eBook. (I assume it's OK to post external links.)

        Oh cool! I hadn't realized he'd offered an e-book! I read his blog a while back - it's terrific! Thanks, Geoff!
