Why are oval ovens back-to-front?? - 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.

  • Why are oval ovens back-to-front??

    Just wondering why oval ovens are always longer front to back rather than side to side?... personally I'd prefer more space on one side for the fire, and would have thought this would be more efficient too.... maybe an egg shaped oven would give a bit of the best of both worlds, though I wouldn't want to build one!

    Just a thought.....

    The FB oven design is half a geodesic dome not oval. The purpose of that is to reflect the into the middle of the dome. Any other shape would produce cold spots in the oven from uneven heating. You get cold spots anyway. And your right, building it would be a nightmare.

      There are quite a few modular oval ovens on the market such as the Modena2G160 & 180 on the FB site....

        I think it would be a matter of how the oven would be heated. If the oven was larger from side to side then from frount to back, with the chimmey in the frount I would think you would have a larger possibility of dead or cold spots in the barrel shaped ovens.
