Oven not getting white - 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.

  • Oven not getting white

    I used my oven last night for the first time since going through the cure process. It lit fine I burned it for about 2 hours and 15 minute and only got a small area of white at the top. The dome was over 800 degrees and the floor 500 plus. Having made pizza on a stone at 500 for years it was no problem and I was able to cook my pizzas in a few minutes. My question is do I need to get it hotter to get it all white the oven was plenty hot still 450 degrees by the door thermometer when I finally put the door on 2 hours later

    It'll happen, give it time. If it didn't clear then the oven isn't quite hot enough. How did you measure the dome and floor temps?

        Sounds like you haven't driven all the water out yet.

            You are not "cured" yet. The oven is still quite wet. After about four to ten fires like the last you should start clearing easily. I would suggest doing a couple more prolonged curing fires before cooking again. It will make life and pizza easier and better.

                If it's the Fluke company that I know, your readings should be good, and if they are good then you're really close.. Run a 4 hour burn, make pizza and see where it takes you. Your oven will become more efficient over the next 10 or so burns..

                Enjoy your new oven!


                PS it will go white! :-)

                  Agreed. I had about 6 curing fires over 2 wks building up to a a white peak but not sides. My last fire the entire dome went white all the way to the floor. I tihnk I am there!
