Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:

  • Hello please Urgent

    Sorry this is my first post here on your forum, and I really need help, I hire someone to build me a WFO, and it was going pretty good, the base looks very good, but when they started to build the dome, they changed from concrete to Fire clay, they finished the dome and in the next couple of days the fire clay craked, off course nothing sticked together I can take the bricks with my own hand, I am reading here on the Forum that fire clay is mixed with cement and sand is that correct? the workers are only using fire clay to hold the structure off course doesn't seem to be working, so I guess I really need your help here with some advise before I make a decisition, I did not stopped them because I don't know anything about construction, I tought that was the correct way to do it, please your help wll be appreciated

    Regards Leo.

    Look up the home brew mix that many ovens have used. Sand, lime, clay and portland. It works. You have fantastic brick / stone work there but the last time I was there I didn't see a lot of pizza ovens. Clay by itself is going to be problematic...
