hearth not level? - 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.

  • hearth not level?

    got a little rain here in denver yesterday and i noticed to my dismay the hearth on my primavera70 slopes toward the oven center not away. oven is on a level surface and the floor is level, but the hearth tips ever so slightly inward. the two hearth slabs that sit side by side up front end at a seam before the oven floor starts. water deffinatley moved toward the oven floor then down the seam. the oven floor was dry but the hearth was wet just past the door and in the bottom corners. where did the water go? spent today tryning to keep a small fire going to dry it out...can i punch a weep hole through the hearth at the seam with a small masonry bit to drain future rain water or should i try to grind down the hearth so it drains away from the oven? is this just a dumb newbie question and every Primavera70 does this?

    I think you are over worrying this problem. Most ovens are outdoors and subject to weather. Small amounts of rain are not a problem, but if you have a deluge and you haven't fired your oven for weeks it will pick up moisture and won't be as efficient. A few long gentle fires gets it back to good working condition again.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      thanks david s...
      I actually had it fired that afternoon, buttoned it up for the night and it rained on it...it was still pretty warm in the oven in the morning...I'll stop panicking...I just remembered something about no water on the cooking surface, but I guess that means more like dont hose it out to clean it ;-)
