New Build from Thibodaux, La. USA - 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.

  • New Build from Thibodaux, La. USA

    Hello everyone, I wish I would have found this forum before I began this project. I have been reading some of these threads and they are very informative. I began designing this project a few months ago. I even drew everything up in auto cad. It began being just a traditional old time cold smoke house with fire box. Then I decided to build the pizza oven on top. It is very unique design that I have not seen on any of these designs on here but I hope it works. the pizza oven is built on top of my fire box. I have a plug made out of fire bricks in my hearth that can be removed to allow the heat to be drawn to the pizza oven. if anyone thinks i need to be concerned about anything I would appreciate your comments. i sure do have a lot of work into this project.

    A couple of things come to mind, if you plan to heat the oven from below only? If so bad idea you will loose a lot of heat to the firebox below.

    If the lower chamber is only for smoke then I would really like to see some photos, You may also want to consider heating the oven chamber prior to smoking and begin your smoking when the chamber gets down to your desired smoking temp, If well insulated the oven chamber will stay at the desired temps for a long time, maybe for ever as the introduction of smoking heat would offset almost any heat loss if well regulated.

      I have some pictures posted already. Not sure where to tell you to find them but they come up when I log on in the new pictures thread. The pizza oven can be heated up by both the fire box below and the oven fire if wanted or either/or. i have about 12" of brick between the the hearth floor and top of fire box. The smoke for the smoke house will only generated from the fire box below from a pipe under the oven which has a damper. I am sure it may be hard too visualize. I will need to take more pictures of the progress I have made.
