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!

  • Voids in the Dome?

    Hey All,

    Just started my Casa2G100 install this morning, and I'm having trouble getting the dome to fit together. Seems too loose, and has voids that I can see daylight through.

    If I had to guess, I'd say the floor tiles are too big. There's absolutely no void between the tiles and the dome.

    If I jam the cap on, the voids are more than half an inch.

    If I leave the cap off, I can get them to less than half an inch.

    Should I shave the dome? Shave the cap? Shave the floor tiles?

    Thanks for any insight you can give.

    You shouldn't be asking us, you should be contacting FB directly.

      I called them yesterday. The person helping me needed to talk to the manager, and swore she would call me back in an hour.

      Have gotten nothing but radio silence since then.

      I sure don't want to screw up a $3000 project.

        I have a different Casa model but those gaps look well within norms. The gaps are what you cover with the refractory cement. I don't see anything regarding the fit to be concerned about.

        However, while the inside of the dome appears clean, it appears you have soot on some of the exterior seams. When you cement the pieces the cement should be CLEAN with no dust or soot so that you get a good bond.

          Thanks for the advice. I mortared it together this morning and everything seems ok.
