heating with natural gas - 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.

  • heating with natural gas

    I am in an area where using wood as a fuel source just wont work. (I can introduce some shavings at the end of the process to add flavour if required). I am therefore going to have to use natural gas to fire my oven when I construct it. I am wondering if someone has experince with this method. I plan to make a very small oven (large enough for one large pizza only).

    I don't think you'll find an authority on this kind of installation since we are mostly advocates of fire. Seriously, as attractive (clean, efficient, cost-effective) as natural gas is, here in the US an approved gas-fired oven takes a special burner equipped with sensors and an alarm system should the flame fail with the gas still on.

    Bottom line - the catastrophy of a natural gas exlosion is more prohibitive than the benefits of running gas. If it is not realistic to burn wood in your oven, have you considered a pizza stone for your inside gas oven?

      I think you should look at an alternative method if you just want to do one pizza at a time and not use wood.

      Take a look over at pizzamaking.com and search for LBE, or even look to google on the frankenwebber.. You could get away with charcoal on those.. or gas.

        We officially discourage the use of gas in home ovens. It's safety is suspect: unlike an open barbeque, gas can accumulate in a closed dome. We ask all discussions of impromptu gas burners to be taken elsewhere.
