Oven diameters vs 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.

  • Oven diameters vs hearth

    Hi Guys.

    Im Building the 42" inch igloo version of the pompeii.

    Just have a quick question about the hearth im about to pour within one week.
    According to the Pompeii oven plans the oven exterior for a 42" inch oven should be 51" - but do i have to add the insulation of 6" on top ? and the insulation does that also covers stucco etc, which would then make the total 57 inch = the finished product in my case ?

    Im a bit affraid that I might have made the hearth to small. its a corner installation that's approx 61" by 61" ? (I dont have the possibility to make it any bigger)

    My final question, do i need to downsize to a 36" or what do you think ?

    You don't have to drop the diameter to 36" you can go 40" or 39" or what ever works for the size of hearth pad you have. I took my 42" igloo right to the edge of the pad. That said,

    42" ID, 9" (4.5" x2) brick, 6" (3"x2) Use CF blanket is you are need space vs Vcrete, 1" stucco =58". The hard part will be the vent landing.

      Allright, thank you.

      I will also use CF blanket. But think I will size down in order to have propper landing+vent area.
