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.

  • Spaces in my oven floor

    I did a really bad job of laying my oven floor. I got some of the fire clay and sand mix between my bricks and have several with spaces between them...

    What can I do to smooth my oven floor out?

    I would think that you could fill it with fire clay

      If you are talking about vertical - you can use a belt sander. Buy the most abrasive and cheapest ones you can find. If you mean gaps between the floor bricks - no sweat. They will be filled with ash. All you need is a floor that won't catch your peel.

      If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

        Don't worry about it,
        as Les said, they just fill up with ash.

        You won't even notice them.

          I agree fill the spaces with ash, anything else will pop out as it does't expand and contract at the same rate as the fire brick.

            i agree also..don't fill in spaces with anything but the ash....i had to grind a few edges to smooth out joints edges so the peel will slide smoothly
            Can't wait for the next one!
