Best book(s) on building an wood oven? - 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.

  • Best book(s) on building an wood oven?


    Just new here and planning to build a wood fired oven.. Also it seems there are a lot of books and manuals.

    My question: which books or manuals do you consider the best/most useful?

    Thanks in advance!

    Download the Pompeii oven plans from FornoBravo.. Along with this forum and the knowledgeable minds here..you won't need a book or manual IMO!

      I second that! When I went into this, I was convinced I wanted to build a vault. After finding this forum my mind changed. Most ovens have something to offer (some are just a path to crap). The plans here, in my opinion, will give you the most versatile oven you can build.
