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.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Offset Dome Gauge

    In my research through the forum, I came across a dome gauge which was offset from the center. I understand it was made so it wasn't necessary to adjust as the rows increased. Can anyone point me to that information? I have been unable to find it again. Thanks

    Do a search for the "Indespensible tool". THere are several variations on this site.

      Re: Offset Dome Gauge

      I finally found the thread about the offset gauge. "drseward" is a member of this forum and he posted on 08-20-09 about the dome gauge. I couldnt figure out how to attach the thread, but it's worth looking at after a search. I think the thread was about "Colorado Build".

        I couldnt figure out how to attach the thread,
        When you have the page displayed on your screen, 'copy' the address and simply 'paste' it in your posting.
        The software will recognise it as an address and change the format to a different font and colour

        Cheers

              Re: Offset Dome Gauge

              An offset dome gauge is designed to adjust to a changing dome angle (ie: catenary), as opposed to a non-adjustable, centered gauge which is designed to build a true hemispherical dome. Many builders seek a 'flatter dome' oven profile but as Dmun mentioned, if a hemispherical gauge is adjusted enough, a dimpled dome peak results.
              Kebwi's graph is one of the best in representing an adjustable, offset gauge. His thread, http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...ttle-7878.html is also one of the most comprehensive threads here, with many, many questions and answers to everything WFO.

              Thanks Dmun, the globe thing worked great.
