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!

  • Casa 100 Dome Help

    Okay, Casa 100 dome is up and have some questions. Looking from the inside the seams are pretty tight and line up okay. There is one section where the pieces all meet that is a bit lower. Additionally, there is a 1/4" to 1/2' inch hole right in the center of the dome. Is this okay since the mortar will cover it or should I try to correct it because possibly I have the sections in the incorrect position?

    The dome pieces are not perfectly molded so it seems there is no way to make the oven match up perfectly. It seems like I am really close to mortaring the dome and proceeding with the rest of the install. I appreciate anyone's input.

    Ciao Lou,

    The dome pieces should line up pretty nicely. If you check that each dome piece is resting flush on the hearth, and each dome piece is set at the same upward angle, the seams should be pretty consistent and tight.

    Of course it isn't a Lexus. :-)

    Let me know if you can get it tighter to where it looks good.

      What about the hole in the middle? Should that not be there? It seems there is no way to avoid it unless I have the two back sections in the wrong spot.

        There should not be a hole. It's possible you don't have the pieces set up right. The rear dome pieces have a definite top and bottom.

          Could I have the two pieces crisscrossed? Is there an eay way to tell which piece goes where and what is top and bottom. I truly believe I have the top and bottoms set up properly. I could send you pictures to your private email if that would help.

            Tammy or Peter will give you a call, to make sure we get this right.

              Thanks for all your assistance. Without this forum probably never would have a oven installed.
