how many times to wait? - 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.

  • how many times to wait?

    I am wondering if I should go ahead and fire mine some more before I put my vermicrete on- I didn't get it up to dome white before I got the arch crack and had to fix it. Now all that is fixed, and I'd like to get the rest insulated, but I'm worried that it's never gotten hot enough yet. I guess I'm looking for a way to finish my oven and eat my pizza too.... I'd rather not wait a week for my repair/chimney work to cure, fire it to the right heat, finish the insulation, wait another week, etc. etc. etc.

    So really, do you wait a week after the bricks are done, fire it up, then insulate with the vermicrete, wait a week and fire it up again, stucco, wait a week, etc.? Or does the blanket, my major insulator, (2 inches+) protect the vermicrete enough from heat that I can put the crete on and still fire the oven? By the time you get to the stucco layer, do you have to wait at all? In theory, it shouldn't get hot at all at that point.

    I don't want to screw this up by getting impatient now, but my husband is wondering if he's ever going to get to eat anything out of it!

    I'd say once the blanket is on the oven is insulated enough to fire up without any ill effect to the outer layers... except maybe bits concering the vent/chimney, they'll still get hot and need time to cure.

    At least that's what I think, lets see what others will say....

    Have you checked how hot it gets on the outside with the blanket on?
