Broken FB Insulation Board - 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!

  • Broken FB Insulation Board


    I picked up my Casa 2g 90 last Friday and drove back home to so cal.

    I had the help of a friend to take the oven out of the back of the truck.The oven dome was quite heavy when removing it from the base. We ended up damaging the insulation board. It seemed quite fragile.

    Does look salvageable?

    The problem I see is not the landing area where the floor tiles go, but rather on the side of the insulation board. This is where the dome sits on.

    What do you guys think?

    Hey d0rifto,

    I know that we have been in touch with you via email, and wanted to confirm what we said. Try dry assembling the oven dome and floor on the insulating boards, and if the oven is stable, you should be OK.

    If not, just let us know and we will replace the damaged board at no charge.

    Once the oven is assembled, the board insulation does not get much attention. It just sits there insulating the floor of the oven. :-)

      Hello James,

      thanks for the quick reply back!

      I will let you know how the build goes and if I need the replacement board.
