need help on custom stainless oven - 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.

      It is my understanding that discussion of DIY gas fired ovens is not allowed here on the forum due to the dangers involved with the gas burner systems and the number of fail-safes that need to be engineered and operable to render such a system safe.

      That said, I am aso not sure I understand the concept. What does the stainless outer shell provide? It would need to be significantly modified and an additional inner dome (you suggest more stainless) shaped at a non trivial cost. All for the sake of retrofitting a freebie into something far less than ideal. There is no thermal mass, so the oven would need to provide direct and evenly spread heat (you mention propane) to cook with.

      You have asked about the vent and chimney. If you take a look at the design of the ovens we build, the vent and chimney are above the opening arch. If you could fit a pre-cast dome and insulation under your "shell" and the opening lines up properly to a traditional chimney, then you may have a workable solution. You would need an insulated floor (FB board with fire brick over it) and then the pre-cast dome and insulation with your "hood" being the protective shell.

        Here is one oven made of metal....It is wood fired though.

        The home made gas oven you talk about is a good way to visit your family at the burn center. Make it a wood fired oven.

        If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
        Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
        An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

        I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

          I like your out-of-the-box design thinking to modify an existing structure into an oven. But because your oven plan does not incorporate the most basic elements of a true WFO (refractory dome, floor and wood fuel source) you are essentially re-creating a very expensive gas oven.
