Cracks in bull nose landing. - 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!

  • Cracks in bull nose landing.

    Hello all.
    Well after a series of fires at full temp I have found some cracking in the mortar joints in my bull nose paver landing. Actually it is only between the two middle pavers and along where the pavers meet the firebrick floor. Should I try to patch them? Will they get worse? Any thoughts on this one?

      This area is a problem regarding cracking. My first oven cracked in the same place and it was in the middle of a 3" heavy duty fire brick. It is not an area that gets really hot yet materials there tend to crack. I think it is the heat difference between the hot side and the cold side that creates great stress and leads to cracking. Replace it or live with it. It will not effect the performance of the oven.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Thanks for the input. I will try to post some pictures today.
        The crack is not that bad, it is just dead in the center of my landing.
        Maybe I will chip out some of the mortar and repack it.
