dome is out of circle - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • dome is out of circle

    My dome is out of circle, in some places up to about .5 inches. The dome goes around the floor bricks. Maybe the floor got out of wack before I started the dome - winter came in between those steps. I didn't use the IT until now, so now I can see it painfully clearly. I'm now on the 3rd course (1st course was splits that raised it up so I wouldn't get a peel caught under dome brick.) Should I correct it right away? If I do, it looks fugly where brick sticks out 1/2". Or do I correct it a little bit on every course? Or do I not worry about it until I get close to the top? I'd rather correct it higher up, where you won't see the bricks not aligned properly unless you stick your head in.
    Here's mine:

    bring it back a little bit at a time, over 2-3 courses. It will turn out just fine.

      I went off a bit as well on a course that I did not use the it. It wasn't bad so I made a executive decision to just fix it on the next course. Now that it's done I can't even notice it but not to say it doesn't bother me!! I just push the fire over to that side and problem fixed.
