Forum Page Loading Response

Forum Members:

We have received feedback regarding recent issues with page loading response time. We believe the slow response issue stems from the analytics we added with the new Forum. We are in the process of reconfiguring those elements and, after an approximate 24-hour time period for the reconfiguration to run, we anticipate a return to normal page load times. Thank you for your patience!

  • Foundation question

    Have started my oven building adventure today and leveled a portion of my back yard with a bobcat. I have a question about the foundation size for a 42 inch oven. In the Forno Bravo instructions on page 16 it states a 73X86 inch foundation is required yet on the material list on page 66 it states that a 80X96 inch foundation is required. It also gives two different block stand dimensions for the same size oven. What is the correct foundation size?

    I am pretty sure you want the big dimension. I did not notice the conflict and went with the smaller dimension. This 'crowds' the dome when you have to insulate.

    It is baffling they haven't corrected it yet.

      FB really should have a wiki version of the instructions, and let the folks here have at the version control. The collective wisdom of this forum could create some killer instructions

          This is a great idea.
