Building brick oven from existing brick grill - 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.

  • Building brick oven from existing brick grill

    Ok, I have been reading the forum for great info, but had a specific question. My family wants to build a brick wood burning oven. We are going to hire a mason to do it, but had some basic questions for anyone who can help.

    We have an old unused brick grill in the corner of our yard when we moved in. We wanted to use it as a base since its sturdy (although not fire brick i dont think). Is that ok if the base isnt fire brick?

    We spoke to a mason about adding a fire brick floor on top of it, then either a square or round dome on top also of fire brick.

    Does there have to be clay on top? Also, i read there needs to be a special high heat mortar?

    Lastly, do we have to have a door, or is it ok to be left open all the time.

    Thanks for any info as we decide whether or not to pull the trigger!

    My main concern was safety, so if any of this seems like it wont work, you wont hurt my feelings.

    Thank you!
