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!

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.

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.

  • Concrete mixing hoe

    So, official mixing hoes have holes in them. Such hoes are more expensive. Do I need to use one or is a cheap garden hoe sufficient?

    Thanks.

    I've been using a garden hoe to mix concrete for many years. They're fine.

      The holes help mix a little more quickly and thoroughly, but not so much that you'll miss them if you use a garden hoe. I didn't have either, so I spent the extra couple bucks for a mixing hoe.

        Sounds good. I'm hoping to have an electric mixer anyway, but I might put a second person on hoe-n-barrow duty to get it all in the form as quickly as possible.

              I can't believe I missed that until you mentioned it. I'm usually all over that kinda thing.

              Props.

                Yeah, you want a concrete mixing hoe because they come with their own boots and hat.

                Well... Somebody HAD to do it...

                  I'm done here. James is going to have to moderate this thread if it goes much further. ;-)

                    The trouble with that type of hoe operator, the other workers are not performing as they are observing the hoe operator to ensure that she is doing it properly.
                    I prefer a petrol mixer and am about to kick mine into action and concrete in my sun shade sail poles over the pool. Just looking after the little grand kids with summer fast approaching.
