Cobb oven weight? - 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.

  • Cobb oven weight?

    Does anyone know approximately how much a Cobb oven will weigh?
    This would be a 27" diameter dome ( approx.10" total wall ), with a firebrick floor, plus the entry arch and clay chimney.
    I ask because I'm hoping to get away will putting it on a concrete column base with a floating hearth slab instead of the block stand, or a solid fill base.

    Thanks much

    No idea really. I think it depends on how much straw you mix with the mud. I'm guessing that the whole shootin' match (oven/chimney/door) wouldn't weigh more than about 400 - 500 lbs.
    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

      A 27" ID dome with a 4" floor will weight about 3200 lb. This is a quick and dirty calc without a doorway or arch, so it will probably be a bit less. It's in the ballpark though. Call it 3000 lb.
