Question About My Chimney Flue - 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.

  • Question About My Chimney Flue

    I set my flue in place the other day and am debating on whether to surround it with courses of brick or to actually put a mosaic on the flue from some stone that I have left over from covering my kitchen counter tops.

    This stone withstands heat very nicely. I'm always placing a pan right off the stove onto the stone with no problems or concerns. My question is, does the flue have to be separate from anything to allow it to expand?

    I would really like to do this as I think the mosaic would look much better than a traditional chimney look.

    I insulated and stuccoed my flue. Tiles were put on the suucco. No problem.

      My second oven developed a crack because I used castable refractory around the flue. The xpanding steel flue cracked the castable. I now insulate around the flue before applying the stucco.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Thanks for the replies. What did you insulate it with?

          I used ceramic blanket wraped in wire mesh then covered with stucco.
