Cleaning Primavera Oven - 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.

  • Cleaning Primavera Oven

    Ok so my first pizza in the Primaver oven was a disaster and got stuck on my peel and kinda turned over in the oven. Needless to say there is tomato sauce near the entrance of the oven and the brush is not getting it off.

    Any recommendations or do/don't for cleaning this tomato sauce from the base of the oven?

    thats what i call seasoning the bricks... Just try scrubbing with a damp cloth when the oven is cool... whatever is left will burn off usually the next time you fire up..

    and believe me your not the first to do it...

      Another tool you can use is to pull the fire over the area that needs cleaning...

      Once you have a fire that has burned for awhile, and you have a good collection of hot coals, just pull a pile of coals over the area that needs cleaning and let the coals burn for awhile. This should burn the offending mess off of the hearth.

      You can use this technique to add a bit of heat to the middle of the hearth during a long cooking event, or use this to clean the hearth in between pizza's at a party.

        Definitely don't scrape or even scrub too hard. As previously mentioned, your next fire will take care of the problem. You might not even need to move the coals over the area depending on where the mess is.

        As I love to tell guest at our oven: These ovens have been "self-cleaning" hundreds of years before GE or Maytag thought up the idea.
