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!

      Hey! I think you did a wonderful job on your oven. What was the total time that it took you to cast it? We have put together our foundation, getting ready to pour a hearth for the oven to sit on. Then we will build a form and cast our oven. Where did you get your fire brick tiles for the cooking floor? Where did you get or did you use, woven ceramic insulating blanket to put over the dome?

          Hi Rep! Just showed my husband your oven and he is very impressed. He wanted to know what you used to shape your dome, was it sand? How did you get it to hold together, from the picture it looked very solid. Post pics of your first cook! It will be exciting, but be careful, don't cook the feret!

              Hi Reptilazio,

              A great bounty from your oven. Is that a gas line connected to your stand? What's its function?

                Laurentius yes a great bounty lol and yes its a gas line the oven work with gas or wood i bake every 2 days or so so i need a fast fuel like gas and the option to use wood when i want and u can start the fire really fast with the gas burner if u want wood.

                            It is the position of Forno Bravo that gas burners on home ovens aren't safe. Please take all discussions of them off-line. Thanks.

                              Hi Dmun, all,

                              Yes, I know the FB position about gas burners, but some members do not. You posted the reply I was waiting for. Thank you for doing that.

                              Cheers,
