Trying to decide - 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.

    Hi Everyone!

    I have been lurking for a while. I have been researching wood ovens for almost a year. In a few weeks I am getting a 12 x 14' concrete patio poured so I can have a wood fired oven. I love to cook and have a Big Green Egg as well as a cabinet smoker. The Egg makes ok pizza, but it is tight and the 750 - 800 degree temps regularly kill my gasket.

    My back yard does not have access for large machines. Ideally, I would buy a finished set it up and cook oven. The trouble is to get a decent size oven I would need some machinery to get it in place.

    I noticed Forn Bravo has a really nice 70 size oven that is on casters, I could probably manage to get that in the back yard with help (I do not have a level lot going front to back). I am concerned that a 70 size oven will be too small.

    I will not be throwing huge parties, I wantr to cook mainly pizza, but I also want to do things like breads, Prime Rib, Wings or whatever. From what I can tell a 90 size oven is probably perfect size wise.

    The Casa2G90 seems to fit the bill, I am just concrened that it may be one of those projects that is just a little too much and never quite gets finished. I have no real mason skills but have built stuff around the house like shelves, walls and so on.

    I really will not have much help building this and budget says I can't hire this job out - the opven and patio are already taking up my budget.

    If it were you would you just buy the completed portable 70 size or suck it up and push through and build the 90?

    Any suggestions are appreciated

    You are the only one who can decide that question. The oven in your other post will do what you need if you can get it back there. The advantage is that you can take that oven on wheels with you when you move out.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
