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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

  • Taper upper courses of brick?

    Howdy folks,

    Greatings from North Idaho on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille!

    I'm in the process of laying out the oven dome and I had a question about the upper courses of fire brick. I am doing a hemispherical 40" dome using a styrofoam form.

    Are the upper courses of brick generally tapered on the sides to get a snug fit (and I assume greater strength) or should I just use straight cuts and have an angled gap between each brick in the course?

    If they are not tapered I would guess that I should make the width of the bricks smaller as I go higher on the dome (otherwise the angled gap between brick would get larger with each course).

    It has been many years since I have done brick work (I do a fair amount of stone work) and never a dome. I am doing my brick cuts with a 7" Ryobi tile saw.

    Thanks for any and all assistance.

    Good Roads
