Primavera 60 on bare ground - 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.

  • Primavera 60 on bare ground

    I am contemplating buying the Forno Bravo 60 and would like information on placing it on bare ground. In my case, I live in the Sierra foothills in California and my terrain is a mixture of rock and clay and it in some places it is impossible to dig in the earth with a shovel. Do I need to lay a pad for this small oven and if so can I get by with something like flat rock some people use instead of concrete? I know it has to be level, but I would think I could do that myself with even my non-existant building skills.

    A flat rock will do fine, but it has to be level enough to hold your insulation. If it isn't dead flat, you can use a leveling medium of fireclay and sand under your insulation board. What form of enclosure are you planning?

    Don't even think about plunking your insulation boards down on bare earth.

    Does it freeze by you? If so you may need to place your flat rock on a bed of crushed stone, to avoid frost heave.

      It freezes about 2 to 5 days a year and we get almost no snow. What does "enclosure" mean? And what is the differance between sand, gravel and "crushed stone"?
