I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7q7...jSniYogfUra06Q

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

    Hi Jeff...............not sure exactly what you need but this came up on 'What is it' when I googled it.

    This is a modern log grabber that can be bought today. Found it for sale in US and Canada but not Oz. Maybe a longer browse through the web would turn something up. Or have one made.

      Jeff,

      Can't you find something at a fireplace shop?

      I've even used my kitchen tongs (with the longer handle)

        Thanks Inish.
        Now why didn't I think of that? Wouldn't have Luddite ancestry in my blood perchance?

        XJim: more fun to make 'em myself; that way my Lady thinks I'm actually earning my keep. Hahaha.
        (Ahem!)
        Mate, the kitchen tongs hide every time I fire up the furnace, tru. (Well that's how it seems to me anyway).

        Thanks again fellers. My love in life is going bush for a few months at a time.

            Solitude.
            My Lady doesn't talk much, so she's allowed to come most times.

            Mate, the image was directed toward Frances. (She enquired as to the nature of "paperbark". Well there you go).
            Why wrap a banana?
            It was to hand.
            Just goes to show that insanity is not necessarily confined to The Irish, eh.

              XJim,
              The above post may seem unbalanced.
              Truth is, I'd just set up that image for transmission when I read your post. Seemed the perfect time to try my hand 'solo' (ie without Inish's directions), and 'voila' ....so maybe there's a glimmer of hope for the old dog yet.

              Have nutted-out design for a clinker-grabber. Nothing like that equisite forged piece from yesterday, but similar functional design. Just not handsome.

              (Apparently GJB is still with the goats, eh.
              What say we club together and buy the Lad an Honourary Doctorate in Pizza Practises? The forum won't be the same without him, and I can't wait years 'till he gets up to speed). Giggles.
              Jeff.

                Pssst, Jeffy,
                I'm still watching your antics. I just needed a day off to make pizza and bread. Perhaps pasta al forno today.

                I could never leave this forum, nowhere else to go. (Maybe a walkabout in the bush or say... the ant artic?)

                  Sad, sad. Somehow I imagined it would still say Master Builder. Guess I'll get over it.

                      George (Sir),

                      Time to get over the blushing period. Crikey, as Jeff would say, congratulations.

                        Thanks for the toast Jeff. Once again, a hearty laugh on my side. I keep wondering that if we met, would we be immediately best friends, or dislike each other completely. I choose to believe the former. Nothing better than humor to create friendships, eh?

                        CJ - I baked my 5th batch of ciabatta using your recipe during my "day off". I was a little short on the biga, so I just improvised until the hydration looked right - really sticky stuff. It turned out really well. Thanks for all your efforts on the e-book. I will learn it like the "Apprentice" in the near future.

                        The blushing period is over. Back to biz.

                          Sir George of Longview.
                          Mate, I've only met, and welcomed into our hovel, one person from this internet thingy. An old pric, ex truckie, pre that he had enjoyed a hard and devious living.Appalling table manners (same as mine, hehehe).
                          And now a friend.
                          I don't anticipate a recurrence.
                          GTB, you're gilt edged. Mate I'm lead lined.
                          The only way you and I would ever hook up would be in my environment: probably desert. And I reckon (for a Navvy, eh) you'd do ok.
                          Chuck me into your Social Circles, and it would be terribly unconfortable.
                          To summarise Sir George, I reckon you'll do me for a mate.

                          Your call.

                            I can't reach the logs with my gloved hand so I use a simple garden tool. It's a simple four prong cultivator. It doesn't pick up the logs but does a great job wrangling the logs.

                              Heads up! These don't come up very often. I'm not going for it because I think the shipping is overpriced, but for someone in Chicagoland, it might be just the thing:
