Structural or Insulating - 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.

    For the hearth slab, do I pour regular concrete first then cap with the insulating concrete or insulating concrete then regular concrete?

    Welcome aboard Mojoe,

    The structural layer is below (at the bottom), and the insulating layer (either SuperIsol or vermiculite concrete) sits on that. The oven in turn sits on the insulation, and you really only need insulation below the oven floor itself.

      Makes perfect sense. Is the insulation layer hard enough to anchor J bolts for sidewalls and a roof?

        From what I have read it is better to put the J bolts in the bottom layer.

          One of these days I should learn to trust my gut instinct... back to the store for longer bolts.
