Vermiculite versus perlite - 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.

  • Vermiculite versus perlite

    Any advantages to using one material over the other for the insulating hearth? Is there a specific grade that I need to obtain? I see that these are used in the gardening industry, is it the same stuff?

    Thanks, Rino

    There's a silicone coated vermiculite that you don't want (it doesn't adhere to the concrete) Anything sold for agricultural use is fine. Perlite and Vermiculite both work the same. It mostly depends on cost/availability.

        I found my vericulite in the garden shop of Home Depot is was about $16 for a huge bag. I mixed it about 50/50. I also placed a single piece of cardboard between my insullation and solid pour for expansion. So far so good after about 20 fires but ask me in a year. Pictures in gallery under name showing steps for my pizza oven / tandoori grill / smoker combo. Have done all 3 successfully in same unit.
