Lighting a fire - 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 is one technique for starting a fire:



    It's fast and it's pretty easy.

    Great video, did not know you could use the fire starters we were afraid of the wax in the oven but I guess it must melt off. We build the fire the same way with the exception of the fire starter, we use cardboard egg containers and the formed cardboard ends that printer toners come packed in (we get those from the office!)

      Nice video. I have one more suggestion. Dryer lint catches the firestarters very well. We keep a plastic tub on top of the dryer to collect the lint. I must say though I have been doing the "top down" method with two big logs on bottom and the smaller wood on top with a lint-wrapped fire starter and have had very good success.

        I will try that and make a video. I wonder if I could get enough wood to complete fire the Primavera in a single "top-down" built. That could be cool.

              Hi James

              my neighbours are very close so I worry about smoke from the oven

              Wanted to say thanks for the video after 3 big fires that took lots of newpaper
              and messing to get going..the criss cross method with firelighters was brilliant.
              I did it as a sort of top down fire with 2 big logs at the bottom which also acted as a good base to circulate air..

              After 5 mins of smoke the oven was roaring and white within an hour..I could then throw any size log on and it was not giving out smoke ...got the top too 1000F..and kept it at around 700 for 3 hours while we cooked pizza..

              cheers again the videos theyare a great idea...
