oven door? - 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 door?

    hey, got the base built and the concrete slab poored so just in the process of planning the oven itself. i am slightly puzzed to which side of the chimney the door wants to go? oven side so its totally sealed for slow cooking? or the other side so there is still some air circulation?

    I don't know how this would relate but, I'm building a steel dome oven with an inner and outer door....for reasons I will explain later....
    one door right at the oven and another on the outer side of the flue...
    pics to follow as soon as I get my permit straightened out...

      Yes and yes. Many people have an insulated door for the inner side (sitting up against the reveal/door jamb and inner arch) and another door for the outer side (so smoke can still go up the chimney).

        Typically, the door is for the inner side.

        If you want more air, the door can be cracked open a bit. Others have two doors as noted above, but the priority is the inside door.

          Hi rossyb,

          I can think of two ways for useful oven heat to escape. One is out the front of the oven and the other is up the chimney. A door on the front can be useful for draft control. A regulated amount of air goes in through the door vents, feeds the fire, circulates around, then exits through the chimney along with heat and smoke.

            An outer door can also be useful for keeping out the elements (and keeping the landing dry).
