Rough surface on Casa2G100 cooking 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!

  • Rough surface on Casa2G100 cooking floor

    Started installing oven yesterday and have question on cooking floor. Both sides of floor peices are rough, similar to course sandpaper. Is that normal? Any way to smooth them out? Concerned a raw pizza dough will get stick on the bumps.

    Re: Rough surface on Casa2G100 cooking floor

    Hi lbeauc,

    I know that we are talking with you through email, but I want to confirm that the rough surface of the firebrick tiles is very typical -- and not a problem at all. The tiles are the perfect surface for cooking bread and pizza. The dough hits the hot tile and the moisture in the dough is quickly converted to the steam that is one of the most important aspects of brick oven cooking.

    Take care curing your oven -- your patience will be greatly rewarded!
