Is pre mixed heat mortar ok? - 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.

  • Is pre mixed heat mortar ok?

    Hi folks, I'd really love some feedback about why the FB pompei instructions say not to use pre mixed heat resistant mortar for pizza ovens - their quote is below. I have a product called Rubbedin Hot Spot Redi-Mortar and its directions suggest that it's appropriate for BBQ's, fireplaces, chimneys etc.

    "Finally, makes sure that you do not use a wet, premixed
    fireplace mortar with water-soluble binder. There are a
    number of mortar brands designed for in-door fireplace
    installation, where the mortar does not cure to a fully-cured,
    waterproof state. This is the wrong product for pizza oven

    Thanks heaps guys.

    I'll take a stab at it. The obvious point is that your oven is outside and could get wet at some point. With the mortar described in your quotation, your mortar joints would go weak and the oven could crack or fall. I think the issue is to make sure the mortar you use won't be affected by moisture after you put it in your oven. The 'home brew' mortar is what I plan to use.
