Flaking Parging Mortar - Casa2G110 - 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.

  • Flaking Parging Mortar - Casa2G110

    My mason assembled the oven and parged between the sections with the high heat mortar. The surface of the parging mortar has flaked badly. See the two attached photos. (Not sure if they are posting right - the surface of the parging looks like a dried lake bed or something like that.)

    Any advice? It has set for a week now and I was planning to start my curing fires. Should I worry about the flaking, or just proceed? Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hi Karl,

      James here. That should not have happened. Is the mortar band that seals the oven solid where it meets the oven dome, and will it hold in hot air and smoke?

      The Casa2G ovens have a really nice interlocking joint that makes the seal on the outside a lot less important than the butt joint between two bricks or non-interlocking dome pieces, so you are probably in good shape.

      But if you have any concerns, let us know. You can scrape away anything that is loose, and re-apply a more sticky mortar formulation. We can send you that right away (no charge) if you need it.

      Send us a message at info at fornobravo.com, or call, and we will get right on it!

      Again, sorry about the hassle. We want will make it right for you.
