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!

  • New Primavera 60!

    I took my new Primavera 60 for a 2nd Test Drive yesterday. It's pretty exciting. My parents came over and we realized that my mother had never had one of my pizzas. I was a little nervous because working with the WFO was so new to me. I have the home oven pretty much down to not having to think things through, but with the WFO it's more of a live sporting event with far less time for errors in finding the sweet spots.

    While I was heating this thing up, I figured I'd throw a few appetizers in there to try cooking some other items as well. I waited too long and had to do this at pizza temps! The oven dome had cleared so my Primavera was well above 800 degrees.

    My first Appetizer was Artichoke Stuffed Mushroom Caps. They came out really nice! The tops browned quickly. I kept a close eye on them - turning the platter several times and pulling it out to cook in the doorway for a bit. After a couple of minutes only, I pulled them wrapped them in foil to allow the thick mushrooms to steam a bit before we served them. Delish!

    My next app was from James here at FB! It's a Sizzling Shrimp, or Prawns Pil Pil. Check out the recipe here: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f12/...rimp-1718.html

    I used Jalapeno's since I had them available. These were delicious. It's a perfect app to make at pizza temp. The shrimp cook quickly!

    I also fired a salmon on a cedar plank. I was going to make a pizza with salmon and figured I'd also try out the oven for fish. This was a dance with the oven being so hot! The plank turned black and smoked quickly and I had to keep moving the fish around and keep it in the heart quite a bit to prevent it from burning. It came out great though. The top was slightly charred in places, but the inside nice and moist.

    I gotta run, my son has a lunch break on his first day of Football 2/days....will add some pics of pizza in the next post.

    So excited! So much fun cooking with fire!
