Pacific Clay Brick - 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.

  • Pacific Clay Brick

    I received this letter from a brick manufacturer. Could I use this for either the floor or the dome?

    Please accept this Letter of Certification verifying that Pacific Clay Brick Products “Fire Brick” (4-1/2” x 2-1/2” x 9” or 4-1/2” x 1-1/4” x 9”) will withstand temperatures of 2300  F. with an Alumina (Al203) content of 21% and a Silica (Si02) content of 70%.

    This brick is not refractory brick and will not meet the ASTM specification for refractory brick. Pacific Clay is in conformance with ASTM C 1261-10 (Standard Specification for Firebox Brick for Residential Fireplaces)

    That's what I think would be referred to as "low-duty" firebrick, which should work just fine for the floor and the dome. I think plenty of builders have used it.

      thanks. I have read all the threads related to the brick, but just wanted to be sure before I make the purchase. Kinda critical component, you know?

        It says they meet the ASTM standard for residential fireplace brick, thats good enough. Fireplace bricks work perfectly fine (speaking from experience). It would be nice if they had a slightly higher alumina content (mid 20s), but you won't know the difference.
        If they are readily available and inexpensive there is no reason not to use them.
