Texas suppliers of refractory materials...Keyword = Refractory - 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.

  • Texas suppliers of refractory materials...Keyword = Refractory

    Texas is full of industrial companies that routinely need refractory materials. A refractory material is one that retains its strength at high temperatures -What we need for portions of our Wood Fired Ovens.

    Lesson learned: A google search under something like 'Texas refractory' gave me several great sources for firebricks, fireclay, refractory concrete and refractory insulators.

    I had purchased 50 pound bags of Hawthorne Bond fireclay for $27 a bag from a pottery supplier in Dallas. A local refractory, (Wesco refractories in Mansfield, TX), sells Hawthorne Bond fireclay for $13.30 per 100 pound bag!! The Insulation board was $72 for four 2' X 3' pieces in one box. They had refractory concrete also (in many variations that I didn't understand-but they understood and guided my selections), even insulating refractory concrete (I bought two 50 pound bags for $58.xx)

    If you do an online search for refractory companies in your area, you may just find materials unavailable via other sources.

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
