Cooking floor fire brick installation on FB Board - 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.

  • Cooking floor fire brick installation on FB Board

    Hi all,

    Have built oven stand and hearth and am now ready to install the FB board purchased from Forno Bravo then the first of fire bricks for the cooking floor.

    Question is: Do I need to attach the cooking floor fire bricks to the FB board using a "thin layer of paste made from sand, fire clay and water as a 'bed' for the floor." that are mentioned in page 32 of the Forno Bravo instructions or place on top of the FB board without the paste?

    The sand/fireclay mixture is for leveling, not attachment. If your floor bricks are flat enough without it, you don't need to use it. I didn't.

      I used a thin level layer mixed from sand and fireclay because a wet mix would hard to work with due to my board absorbing water. As dmun said it was purely for achieving a level oven floor

        Personally I would use the mix for leveling. Bricks are never consistent in dimensions so using the mix would get you a great floor for little extra work. The mix will not add that much moisture to the board and will evaporate quickly. The purpose of the notched trowel
        is to give your mix a place to go if the brick needs to be lowered some.

        So if it was my oven I would follow the recommended procedure.
