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

Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

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.
