I built a Forno Bravo 36 " WFO at my home in Mexico about 6 Months ago and made several mistakes. I didn't communicate properly with my builder and was out of town when he built my dome. Instead of 4 " brick walls, they were 8". Instead of 15" high dome, it was 30", instead of 2 " Heath floor, it was 4".
When I got Back home and saw everything was wrong, I had to make a decision to tear it down and rebuild it, or try using it the way was. Since I was eager to start baking Pizza's, I decided to use it as is.
My friend and neighbor saw my FB and decided he wanted one also.
He drilled a hole in the side of his dome and installed a big propane burner. He loves it.
He can get it up to Temp in less than 30 min and is setting down eating his Pizza while I'm still trying to get my wood going good.
I made the decision to tear off my dome and start over with a gas burner installed.
I didn't want to build a bomb, so I ordered a burner (Avanzini) made in Itlaly and sold by Belforno, NC.
I can heat with gas or wood.
We just finished it today and below are a few photos. Cannot wait until next week to try it out.
In image 17, you can see the 4" pipe coming thru the floor for the gas burner. I can cover this pipe with a steel cap and burn wood.
