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.

    Somethings been bothering me for a while!!

    When building a fire brick domed oven why are they called "chains" when in fact they are courses?
    The English language was invented by people who couldnt spell.

    "Curing" is another one that bothers me. We refer to the process of holding in moisture so chemical hydration will harden concrete, but also use the term when driving the moisture out, when drying the oven.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      Both comments are good observations. Any WFO history buffs out there?? Perhaps it is as simple as "regional jargon."

        "Chains" is not a masonry term, it is just a layman's term for course.

        You cure the cement, then you cure the oven (as a whole). You don't cure ham the same way you cure a cold.
