Best insulator for the dome - 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.

  • Best insulator for the dome

    I am about to insulate my dome with 4+ inches of ceramic blanket and a top coat of 1 inch or so of perlite mix. I also have about 1.5 squate meters of 1 inch ceramic board left over from the base insulation and wondered if I could incorporate this into the insulation at the top of the dome.

    I wondered if there would be a benefit in using this spare insulation, and if i should place it before the ceramic blanket ect. ect. ect.

    I thought that the ceramic board was a better insulator than the blanket, but I am not sure if it would be a good idea to incorporate it into the dome insulation.

    You might want to hang on to the board. You can make a nice insulated door out of it.

    4+ inches of blanket & a few inches of perlite will do great.

      Agreed. The board is typically used under the cooking floor, and really won't add anything to the dome.

      4" of good quality ceramic blanket (plus a little perlite or vermiculite to fill any corners -- if you have it) will do a great job.
