Yellow / Pale colored bricks - what are they - 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.

  • Yellow / Pale colored bricks - what are they

    A couple weeks ago I saw an add for free bricks from a chimney teardown. I went and had a look, and I assumed they must be firebrick because they were yellow-ish, and from a fireplace. I've never actually seen a firebrick so I don't know how to compare it. So I'm wondering if I just have some yellow bricks, or what? They are smooth on all sides, but fairly easy to break. When broken the inside has sparsely flecked little white granules with the majority of the yellow / pale color. If I weigh the brick will that tell me anything. And if its not a firebrick, is it safe to use? I assume if its yellow and not a firebrick it has some other mineral that makes it more yellow. (Limestone, calcium carbonate, etc.).

    This will be used for a trial/temporary oven (using fireclay and sand, no cement) so I can build one a few times and try to get it right. (Similar to what the MHA group does / did). I would build a dome and not a barrel vault, but the similar principle of the concrete block stand, and no cement.
