Gas burners for a Pompeii - 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.

  • Gas burners for a Pompeii

    Me again!

    During the winter we have no burn days for wood. Does anyone have a gas burner design to accommodate? I realize that this would be a challenge at best.

    I actually just looked extensively into this with Maricopa county.

    First, the county officially considers our ovens an exotic type of barbecue grill, and thus doesn't require a special Miscellaneous Permit. It took me a lot of legwork with the permit office to figure that one out.

    Second, the Residential Woodburning Restriction Ordinance P-26 is the governing regulation, and it specifically exempts "barbecue devices and mesquite grills."

    Third, I was still kind of worried because the other language on the Maricopa county air quality control website is so absolute, and doesn't indicate that there are any exceptions, so I called the hotline and talked with an enforcement officer. He said that we were completely fine to build a cooking fire in our backyard, even on no burn days. And that even if it weren't allowed, they don't have much enforcement capability, and they're only really trying to keep people from burning trash and other nasty, smoky stuff. Purely recreational fires, like those in firepits are still banned, but as long as you're cooking, you're fine. Well-seasoned wood, which will hardly smoke at all once the fire is going, is always required.

    As far as I can tell, there's no reason to mess with gas.

      You are correct on the review! I also chatted with the folks down there as I deal with them all of the time - just wanted to keep the perception correct. I am still thinking about it just to be proper, though I am carbon neutral as long as I burn wood (LOL) and do not burn the Za!

        Yep, I fully intend to observe no-burn days as often as possible, even though in the WFO it's permitted as an exception, just to be considerate and conscientious. But it's nice to know that I'm not in the wrong if I happen to have a party planned and people expecting pizza!

        It's great to get the confirmation from your conversation with them as well. Now I feel like it's really official policy instead of one guy who was just feeling lenient. ;-)
