Used Firebrick - 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.

  • Used Firebrick

    I have come across used firebricks for free. Only problem is that the corners are not square. Since I need to cut the firebricks in Half anyways can I use the new cut side facing into the oven so it would look nice and square? I know in the free directions is says to place cut side out. Not sure if this would break down the bricks faster or anything else that might affect the oven. I would still buy new bricks for the oven floor. Thanks for any help you can give as I need to decide if I want the bricks soon!

    shouldn't make a difference in strength... just cosmetic.

      This topic has been discussed previously and the consensus was that the 'factory' finish is really no better than a fresh-cut side. For pictures of an excellent build employing a fresh-cut interior dome see Les' Build.

        Since bricks fire from the outside in, the outside tends to have a harder and more durable surface than the cut interior. In modern brick kilns that difference is minimal, but I'd still use the factory edge if I had it. That said, free is free, and a fresh cut edge would remove any nasties the brick had been exposed to it it's previous life. I'd go for it.

          go for it, with the cut side into the oven. This surface is going to be coated with carbon anyway and after a few uses, who looks at the inside of their oven for aesthetics anyway!

              Thanks everyone for responding. I went and got the bricks and some are chipped, but Not that bad. I counted them up and there were 260 full bricks and a few broken ones. I'm going to get new bricks for the floor so I should have more then enough when I start.
