Mold Release - 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.

  • Mold Release

    Hello-I have found lots of good information on this forum. I am currently in the middle of my oven/outdoor kitchen project. I am getting ready to cast my oven from homebrew refractory. I have gotten good info from David S on this subject. What I need to know is-what can I use for a release agent between my mold and the refractory cement? Will Vaseline(petroleum jelly) work? Or will this effect my cooking from the residue left behind, or effect the refractory cement? Your advice is valued. Thank you.

      I use 50/50 motor oil and kerosene, I find it works pretty well. You don't want any more oil than is necessary and by thinning it down this way it can be painted on sparingly.

        Thanks David-Would vegetable oil work in a pinch?

            I guess any oil would work. Whatever you use will burn away in the oven.

              Check with your local masonry supplier. You can buy a standard form release agent.

                Just cover the mold in Cling Wrap.
