high heat mortar - 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.

  • high heat mortar

    I need some advice on high heat mortar. I’m leaving Monday to go to Albuquerque, New Mexico to pick up the rest of my materials for my oven. The supplier does not stock heat stop 50 he only stocks the heat stop2 which is a premix. For those of you that have completed your WFO with the homebrew would you recommend in if you had to do it over again? And what recipe did you use.

    Heat stop and Heat stop 2 are the same thing, HS II is in a one gallon pail instead of a 50# bag. Look for the bag, mucho cheaper.

      The homebrew works well if you use fine sand. Heat stop is super easy to work with, but it can crack just like anything else.

      Here's a link to the recipe and related discussion:

        Please don't simply read the recipe found on the FB site without knowing first that the lime is a no-no with Calcium Aluminate cements, not even in trace amounts found on old tubs, tools and such..
        The thread that the above points to eventually brings it up, but only much later way after the recipe is given.
