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!

  • Earth Oven Completed

    I've posted some pictures in the photo gallery of the the earth oven recently completed.
    It is earth per the Kiko Denzer earth oven book.
    It's had a few small fires, but no cooking yet.
    All in all it was a great experience, but I think brick work is faster than mixing so much cob.
    I'll give updates when it finally bakes something and I compare to my Casa oven.

    Stellawood,

    That is a neat looking oven,

    I'll be curious to hear your reports about using the oven!

    Good work!

      The oven has done quite well on it's first full day of pizza cooking.
      We really pushed it.
      It produced over 60 small pies with pizza dough & topping donated by Arizmendi (SF)
      It took a little bit longer than the Casa 90 to come to temp, and it seemed to max at lower temp but it really performed well for being made out of local bay area dirt.
      I didn't stay to see how long it then retained the heat, but all in all it has been an amazing project. The insulating layer of cob really worked. The oven was never hot on the outside, just pleasantly warm.
      A person that has worked in restaurants commented that he thought it did as well as the restaurant ovens he's used. Pretty successful day.
