can I cure the oven without a vent landing/chimney? - 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.

  • can I cure the oven without a vent landing/chimney?

    I have cured for a week with an electric hotplate set at 225 with insulation plugging the arch,(it felt like moist air every time I stuck my hand in) but have not built my vent landing, chimney area( ie: anything but the dome proper), Then I left it to our locally dry weather for another week. The hotplate broke, and I would kind of like to build some "curing fires" in it now, if advisable. I would not do this if the anchor plate and everything under it were built, as this would presumably direct the curing fire heat directly toward my 10 ft plus roof of my outdoor kitchen. But, I suspect, that with dome only currently, the heat/smoke will easily diffuse before gathering in my roof. Any thoughts?

    Your curing fires are by definition small smokey fires. I'd wait to vent it if you don't want to get smoke gathering under the roof. Besides, if you build your landing/transition out of masonry, you are going to need to cure that too.

      So I guess I should fix the hotplate, cure with that till the chimney build, then start the real cure? Sounds like patience, but good. Thanks
