Final oven coating - 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.

  • Final oven coating

    Can anyone recommend a final coating for my oven installation? I have put a four inch layer of perlite concrete on top of the brick interior and would like to have a more finished outside look. Is their an high heat stucco type mixture i can use?

    Re: Final oven coating

    If you have a high enough perlite to portland ratio, heat should not be an issue for the stucco layer. I will let someone else recomend what type of stuccu to use, since I am not finishing in stucco. Do make sure the Pcrete is dry before going forward though.
    I don't care what folks say behind my back........They are either braggin' or.......lyin'

        1 week is most likely not enough to dry it.

          What was your Portland to perlite ratio?

          I also agree that 1 week is not dry enough. A dome style finish is a little risky in Illinois as you do get quite a bit of rain, you will need to take weather precautions when it rains, sleets, or snows. Otherwise you will be drying out your oven alot.

          There are several people with dome style ovens that put vents in to alow for moisture to escape.

            If you have not used blanket, but vermicete instead then take it really slow when driving the water out. because you don't have a blanket to take the sting out of the heat from the dome. If you can bear to leave it for three weeks and make sure it does not get any rain on it. Sun and wind are good but not water. If you see any steam rising from the vermiculite layer back off with the fire. Eliminate as much water as you can before doing the stucco.
