Small brick 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.

  • Small brick oven

    Hello All.. just joined and looking forward to some ideas/help from the experienced people on the forum.
    Am trying to find plans/ideas on building a brick oven with a seperate fire chamber as am limited in width and depth. Is it possible to have a fire chamber under the oven and also keep the oven clean from the burning embers. Have about 1 sq yard for the build site. Thanks in advance for any help/ideas

    "White" oven

    The so-called "white" oven, where the combustion happens in a firebox outside the baking chamber, is commercially produced, mostly in conjunction with a home heating scheme. This is one example:


    If you must have a "white" oven, you might want to consider one of the thousands of cast iron wood kitchen stoves that were produced in this country in the 19th century. A lot of those fireboxes are in bad shape, but could be rebuilt with some firebrick and home welding. But at the end of the day, how much do these things differ from putting some bricks in the bottom of your kitchen gas oven?

    A lot of folks here would advocate using a traditional "fire in the hole" traditional bake oven. They come in really small sizes. here's an 18 incher made by superior clay:


    Again, the common wisdom about ovens that small is that they are not worth the trouble. The reason: To have room for a fire, and a pizza, and room to turn it around, 3 feet is about the minimum.
