insulation - 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.

    I see in Russell Jeavons book "Your Brick Oven" that he illustrates using, in addition to perlite, other articles such as bottles to fill up space. Has anyone else used this without problems? I have a lot of bottles I hate to throw out, and will be (I hope) doing the insulation last of this month. Thanks! Judy

    Re: insulation

    Broken glass, and sand, were traditional insulators. They weren't very good. I wouldn't plan on replacing any insulation with them. If you want to mix your glass with portland as an aggragate for rubble fill, hey, that's great. Just be careful handling the stuff.

      Re: insulation

      I suspect that Judy was asking about using entire bottles in areas more remote from THE FURNACE.
      Mate, bad luck has confined me to quarters for a while, so I read'n read'n read, and RUSSELL JEAVONS book was flamin inspirational!! True!( Yes, he masquarades as an Australian: not a Queenslander, so obviously a Mexican. [local nonsense.Rather parochial. Ask.]
      Tonight I layed the ninth course of base bricks, enclosing 90mm (3.7"?) of lime, cement,brickies loam, shredded wood and vermiculite. The outer areas are filled with stubbies. (Small beer bottles: same in your kitchen?). And I reckon it will be efficient.
      Time will tell.

        Re: insulation

        Since we have too much snow to work on the oven, I haven't filled it with stubbies or anything else yet, will be glad to hear how your stubbie filled one works...and you were right about the bottles being away from the blanket insulation, just filling space. Thanks! Judy

          Hey Jude, Snow?
          Mate, as maps go,: we're ruffly 25 S/144 E. So I suspect .......
          (Dammit, Lady. Anyone who lives more than 28 S, (or N even), has been dealt a cruel blow.)
          Judy, on a more serious note: won't be able to offer feed back re insulating properties for a while. Shall keep you in mind as cooking evolves.
