recycle a metal wood heater - 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.

  • recycle a metal wood heater

    I have access to a spare metal wood heater. It is too big for me to use but I was thinking of using it as a outdoor pizza oven. Usually they are designed to radiate heat but instead, I thought I could line it to retain the heat. Any thoughts or suggestions ?

    Hi Dom,

    Welcome to the group. I have to admit I can't picture this. Got a photo?

    Something that comes to mind is that metal tends to get really hot, really fast, then cool off really fast. I'm not sure how that would work as a retained heat oven. Hmmmmm.

    Anybody have any thoughts on this?

    Can't wait to see the photo.

      wood stove as oven

      I wonder if Dom could line the inside of the stove with a durablanket, cover that with refractory bricks and morter and then pile concrete over the stove for mass? That may provide the heat retention he needs and the refraction.
