building my first WFO - 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.

  • building my first WFO

    Hello everyone!! My name's JOHN and I live in the Philppines. I've been cooking pizzas and baking breads for a couple of years now and I'm planning to put up a pizza delivery business here in the city where I'm living. Wood fired brick oven cooked pizzas are inexistent here and I'm very confident that these will be accepted by the people here giving the popular pizza restaurants here a serious run for their money. All the pizza stores here are cooking their pizzas thru their convection ovens and I'm sure everyone knows that nothing beats a pizza cooked in a WFO.

    I've been reading a lot of articles in the websites on how to build WFOs from woodfiredpizza.org to mha-net.org to traditionalovens.com, However, most of the details I've read are for WFOs built for home use.

    I believe a 42" x 50" internal size oven would suit my daily needs (lets say from 30 to 50 pizzas daily, with oven being fired from 10am to 11pm). My question is regarding the insulation requirements for the WFO that I'll be building. How shall I go about insulating my oven? Will a 6" vermiculite insulation underneath the hearth, 4" cladding on top and around the oven and a 6" vermiculite insulation on the side of the oven and 9" on top before stucco, be enough for this purpose? Or is there any other way I can safely insulate my oven so I can use them daily? I found good quality firebricks that contain a fairly high percentage of alumina (36%) with bulk density of 2210 kg/m2. Are these firebricks good enough for the project?

    All the other materials from vermiculites to the refractory bonding mortars and castables are readily available here except for the insulating boards. I can't seem to find them here. I just hope the vermiculites and perlites can fully serve its purpose without thouse insulation boards.

    These are the questions that I have for now and I hope can be answered by anyone of you guys. This site has really been a big help to me. Thank you very much and kudos to ALL.
