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!

  • NorCal here!

    Thanks James - great idea.

    Had the pleasure of meeting with Tom from Penn Valley this afternoon. I swapped a piece of stove pipe for some of his 40 year old sourdough starter.

    I'm looking forward to this section of the forum making those deals more common.

          I'll be there. :-) I am hoping we will have a good NorCal contingent; and some pretty good weather.

          FB Expo has 100+ registered attendees and climbing.

            Hey Dusty, thanks for the pipe. I got home and my wife had a fire started in the oven. She is great! I didn't think I would start one as I got home too late. Well the north wind was blowing and it was just smoking like crazy. I set the pipe on top of the vent and it drew the smoke and the fire took off. Works great! Now to attach permanently.
            Oh we will be at the expo.
            James, I need to purchase some blanket for the oven. Hope you have some in stock so we can purchase while at the expo.

                Excelent!

                I don't fully understand the dynamics, but I suppose it doesn't matter as long as it works. Mine behaved just like yours in the wind, but hasn't smoked a puff since the chimney was installed.

                Glad to have helped.

                  I just noticed this regional section, I will have to check back here... not much activity though. I is a great idea to get together and share ideas etc.
