Cracked Dome and Rough Floor - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Cracked Dome and Rough Floor


    New here and in need of some help.

    I purchased a used mobile oven in 2012 from a FB dealer although, I don't think she is very active. The oven was in good shape. After a year of use dragging it back and forth to the local farmers markets I have noticed some small cracks which I've been told not to worry about and a major chunk out of the back of the oven on the inside. Also, the floor is very rough and pizza will often stick to that area.

    My question is how should I proceed on the repair of both.

    The oven is the Casa 36inch. the chunk is triangular in shape and measures about 3 inches at the base and is about 3inches tall. It appears to be a chunk out of the shell itself.

    I wish I had photos to show you, but it is tucked away for the winter it the shop. I have a roof that raises up but is currently lowered over the oven opening, so hard to get photos unless I pull out.

    I live in Keizer Oregon about 45 minutes from Portland. The dealer will not be of any help.

    Would appreciate all of the expetise on this forum on how to proceed.

    Thanks in advance,

      If you have the piece can you not glue it back with refractory cement? An option for the floor is to use refractory bricks but make sure it is level, otherwise pizza will catch
      Where can I find logs? I need more!
      Finishing the WFO will come after the barn is completed http://flinthousebarn.co.uk/
