Oven Door - 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.

    Hi All

    I share a back yard with my brother, who just put up a homemade fb oven. I wasn't able to contribute as much as I would have liked, but I did get an oven door made. My own design, after digesting this forum a bit, and some other sources. Check out the pics. comments/input welcome
    I like the BIG dial thermometer
    and the 'thermal break' in the door to avoid transmitting heat to the outer layer.
    It all came together quite nicely. the interior is calcium silicate 'block' which is actually 2" thick, and 1' x 3'. I glued it together with JB Weld, which is apparently heat stable to about 500 deg F.
    the oven side metal is 'cold rolled' steel, painted with BBQ paint
    the outside is stainless (a pretty penny at that!)
    Took a while to find the thermometer, but this one works beautifully. the probe was the perfect length. I had to buy a stainless pipe thread 'coupler' from Tacoma Screw to attach to the oven side. this holds the whole door together.
    all together this cost around $350, but I'm making up for missing out on the work to put the damn thing together (and what a project it was!)

    Happy Baking!

    Nice contribution to the bro's build. Pretty thick insulation on the door. One suggestion, If you have not already given it thought. CaSi insulation in "not" food friendly so you need to cover the gap in the middle to protect CaSi particles from getting on the floor where your pies will be.

      But you can eat it as its just calcium and silicon, not that you want mind.

        It would not be considered "food safe" as the stuff is porous, but so are the hearth bricks and authorities seem to turn a blind eye to them, presumably because of the high temperature. If you are concerned about the safety of the cal sil board, look up the data sheet for the product you have and check the health and toxicity sections.

          I stand corrected, I did look up the MSDS for CaSi board and it is more of breathing hazard than a ingestion hazard so get the Pepto Bismo out if you eat eat.........
