Oven draw - 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.

    Here's my second video -- this one is on oven draw and how the vent and chimney work. My favorite part is when I turn the oven on its side; the professionalism would make Wayne's World proud.

    They will get better -- I promise.

    Of course the good news is that I now have 6 really nice 270 gram dough balls and a 900ºF oven, and it's 6:30PM. Not bad. :-)

    Nice vid James. After watching your post and Ken's, it becomes pretty obvious that a nice high arch in the opening of the oven restricts the width of the smoke exiting the dome and directs it straight into the vent of the chimney.

    A flat angle iron across the oven opening releases the gasses and smoke across a flat surface evenly, and without a sufficiently high arch or wide and large enough vent, smoke spills out the sides and comes out the front of the dome. Something to consider for future builders (IMHO).
    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

        Thanks for the video. Camera work? - Questionable. Narration? - Exquisite! Draw? - better than mine.
