Insulation? - 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.

  • Insulation?

    My dome is about ready for stucco. Does the area in front of the oven door- that is the oven opening below the vent need to be insulated before stucco is applied. It would seem that that area is not an integral part of the oven itself.

    Thanks for the help.

    Some do use it, some don't. I'm not sure there's a correct answer. I didn't.

    Insulation over the entryway arch and walls will surely make your oven more efficient for retained heat cooking. If all you are planning is pizza, it may not matter.

    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

        I'm plannin on it, maybe not as much as the dome. Mainly to keep the outside part "Cool" for safety.

          I think that the stucco is more likely to crack round the entryway if it isn't insulated, becuase it gets hotter and expands more... at least I like to think that layer would have cracked less if I had insulated it

          But you're right, the insulation there shouldn't affect oven performance.
