Temp resistence for insulating the Hearth? - 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.

  • Temp resistence for insulating the Hearth?

    I'm building a brick oven and I've seen insulation online that handles 1200F up to 2300F. I can source some 1200F stuff locally but will need to buy anything higher temp online so just wondering if the 1200F board will work or if I'm better off just getting the higher temperature stuff.

    1200 F should be plenty
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      Thanks for the reply. Should I go with 2 or 3 inches thick?

        The minimum thickness should be 2'. If you take a look at our residential ovens, most include 1x 2" insulating boards. The Premio2G oven kits include 3' boards but keep in mind these ovens are heavy duty residential ovens for frequent usage or heavy baking. If you go to our library, you'll find the dimensions for our residential ovens and you can use it as as a guideline for your own oven. Again, this is just a recommendation but custom ovens are up to the individual. I hope this is helpful to you.
