Brick or Stainless - 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.

    I have a brick chimney and it serves the purpose of keeping the smoke away from my face and out over my head.

      The first chimneys were all brick and they worked just fine, Ive a brick chimney on my oven and it draws like a beauty.

      Stainless in the quick and easy solution, plus it saves a heap of weight which has to be accounted for when designing an oven with a brick chimney.

        If you were to use stainless along with a gable roof enclosure how would you flash the outside of the pipe would you need double or triple wall pipe

          A double walled flue should be fine, flash it with a dektite.

            I used double wall with a gabled roof. I built a chimney chase around the pipe, and flashed the top with a chase cover and storm collar. Seems to be working fine. I think it depends on the look you want.

              If the oven is outdoors and is not within reach of curious fingers, the flue can be single walled. I use a 6 inch simple single wall sheetmetal and it lasts about 2 years before crumbling away.
