insulation question - 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.

    I think I messed up and maybe deleted my original post.

    We are in the process of putting together a casa 2G 100. It will be enclosed. The stand is in process right now, the floor will be poured tomorrow.

    My question:
    In addition to the insulating blanket provided, do we need to fill th eenclosure with loose perlite or vermiculite as well?

    Sorry if this has been asked before.

    Hi Jic,

    I used 3"-4" of blanket then added 3"-4" of vermiculite/portland cement on top of that.

    I started to use loose fill vermic, but the stuff goes everywhere and it takes a lot of vermiculite to fill an enclosure. The vermiculite cement went on easily and gave me a nice bonus layer of insulation. My oven retains heat very nicely.

    If you skip the vermiculite you'll probably be fine, but our mantra here is "You can't use too much insulation!"
