Hot charcoal on terracotta? - 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.

  • Hot charcoal on terracotta?

    I am looking to make a home tandoor oven, just have a question.

    The bottom of a terracotta pot, is there a need for "fire bricks" and fire cement on the bottom of the pot? Will the terracotta burn or crack, if directly in contact with hot charcoal?

    No, it shouldn't as long as you don't do anything stupid like dumping water in while it's hot. That said, firebrick won't bleed heat the way terra cotta will. If you're planning on having it in the ground you might want to put something in or under it to keep the heat in.

    And on a totally irrelevant point - this is my 1000th post!!! Name:  7a5912264319b387afef00795de7ca34.gif

      Thanks for the reply, I think I will line the bottom with fire bricks and fire cement to keep the heat in.

      Congratulations on your thousandth post!
