Oven Insulation - 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.

  • Oven Insulation

    I just completed insulating my oven, but I'm so sure I did it correctly. I mixed 10 parts of vermiculite to 1 part portland cement and 3 parts of water. I also place three layers of heavy duty aluminum foil over the bricks and then proceeded to put wire mesh over the foil then the insulation. From what I see of some of the mixture that fell on the ground and dryed it's very loose and I'm afraid when I take the forms away it will crumble. did I do it right? will it crumble should I stucco it? Help!

    It should harden up sufficiently for you to stucco over it.

      hi David,
      how long do I need to wait before I can remove the forms around it

        I don't use forms, but rather just press the mixture in place and tap the outer surface with the flat of a trowel. If you've used formwork I hope you oiled the face of the forms, otherwise I think it will stick. 24 Hrs should be sufficient for it to harden enough. Making the mixture stronger by adding more cement is a mistake in that you reduce the insulation efficiency. You want it just strong enough to stand up on its own and be firm enough to take the stucco coat. A 10:1 mix seems about right.

          Thanks David for the quick response. I didn't oil the form.
          I built a barrel type oven. I may use stucco or I might just
          Brick the walls and put a roof over it
