Used fire 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.

  • Used fire brick

    I have found a source kinda of local for used firebrick at .20 a piece. They are from an old boiler heating unit. Some of them still have some morter on them and there are some dinged corners but most have a good face to work with. I picked 250 earlier this week. Is there a problem that you can think of when recycling bricks? Or did I just pick up some fill? If they are ok to use I will post the info to get in contact with the folks for anyone else to get some.

    Good job on getting the used brick.

    You will be in great shape with these used brick if they are the 'low duty' fire brick. My understanding is the fire brick can be manufactured to tolerate different maximum temperatures. The higher duty fire brick, although they can handle higher maximum temperatures, do not hold heat as well as the low duty fire brick. Low duty are still manufactured to accommodate any temperature you can create with a wood fire, and they hold heat better. You are building a 'retained heat' appliance, so holding heat is a good thing.

    I don't know how to confirm if you have 'low duty' fire brick. Maybe one of the others on the forum will have some clues on confirming this detail.

    Good luck with your build and do keep us posted! Remember we like pictures...

      Boiler bricks should be fine. You want to be careful of bricks used for smelters and blast furnaces, because of possible heavy metal contamination. There's probably an unused face to each brick, you may want to face that into the oven.
