Fill underside gaps where dome meets arch? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community

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


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.

  • Fill underside gaps where dome meets arch?

    Note the following interior shot of my oven. I have already received one comment suggesting that I fill those gaps. They are large enough that I would attempt to fill them by cutting appropriate bricks, not by just filling with solid mortar. My thinking is that filling the gaps will help smoke flow more smoothly out the door and that it might mitigate some edge spalling in the relevant area.

    I'm just looking for confirmation or disagreement with the idea. How have others with completed ovens handled this and what has been your experience or post-analysis of it?

    Re: Fill underside gaps where dome meets arch?

    Before this thread gets started, I would like to point out that it is admittedly somewhat redundant with a side-thread in my primary build-diary thread. It starts at the following URL:


    I created a new thread here specifically for the purpose of having a thread on this topic and with a relevant subject heading so that searches in the future will find it more easily.

    ...but perhaps it's just needlessly repetitive.

    Therefore, rather than actually offering any responses here, I urge people to follow the link posted above and post there, since the discussion has already gained some traction there anyway.

    It still might be appropriate to leave this thread in place however, as state for the purpose of improving future search results.
