Metal Pipe v Ceramic Liner - 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.

  • Metal Pipe v Ceramic Liner

    Can anyone tell me if there is a draw difference between using a pipe and a chimney liner for one's chimney? Currently I am using 6ft of ceramic chimney liner and am happy with the draw, but if a wind kicks up, all bets are off. I had read on another post where someone was asserting that the metal pipe draw would be better because it heats up faster. It made some sense to me at the early stages of firng up the oven, but at somepoint the liner would match the temp of the metal nutralizing that particular advantage. Are there other sustainable reasons a steel pipe might draw better than the ceramic liner?

    Thanks for any thoughts,

    I use a steel pipe.
    The draw is hit and miss.
    It does heat up fast for a good draw...
    But it also cools fast.
