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!

  • just poured my slab

    So this is a little last minute, but I just poured my hearth slab (brought in a truck) about two hours ago. It was in shade until about an hour and a half ago, now it's starting to get direct sunlight, going up to 87 degrees F today. WHen should I cover it and start to spray it with water? The guy who delivered the concrete sait to start tomorrow morning, but now I'm starting to wonder if I should do it sooner. I just put on a packing blanket, then noticed it put very light marks in the finish, so I removed it, since I figured I should wait at least a bit longer.
    Here's mine:

    When you can no no longer press an impression into it with your finger or thumb.

      Try to trickle water in and around the form work and the ground around. Rig up some shade.

      It is critical that the concrete not be allowed to dry out for at least the first seven days.
