Parrilla construction - 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.

  • Parrilla construction

    Hi to all,

    I am a new member to this forum however I have been following it for a long time. I intend to build my WFO with parrilla.

    Something similar to this:

    My concern is that I wish to roof the parrilla with reinforced concrete and I am afraid that the concrete will not handle the heat from the direct flame of the burning wood. I plan to add steel and polymer fibres to the concrete as a reinforcement.

    Can someone please comment on this?

    simple solution: Insulate! Insulate Insulate! A few inches of silicon fiber insulation over the oven dome and parrilla will isolate your roof from the heat generated by the oven(s).

        Can I use calsil board as an insulation?
