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!

  • Question About My Oven Dome

    I set the final key stone today at the top of my dome. I'm very excited but a little concerned with the final shape. I'm not really worried that it will collapse or anything. I'm just upset that it's sort of peaked instead of more rounded at the top and when I look inside it's more jaggy and not very smooth.

    I was just wondering if anyone had this happen.

    I wouldn't worry about it. How is your entry to dome height ratio?

      Dave...
      Jagged or smooth.. as long as your construction is good,, Your oven wont fall apart and will cook well..... Mine is a little rough inside the dome at the top.. also a little oval.. It cooks great..
      Cheers and Good Luck

        I think that's what caused the little peak, trying to come out of the oval shape that was forming. It was weird. The last set of brick pieces lined up excellent, but from about 3/4 of the way up it was a big challenge. I sure hope it stays put. Should be ok.

        In all seriousness, I cried when I set the final keystone. Pretty emotional moment.
