Earth Oven Completed - 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.

  • Earth Oven Completed

    I've posted some pictures in the photo gallery of the the earth oven recently completed.
    It is earth per the Kiko Denzer earth oven book.
    It's had a few small fires, but no cooking yet.
    All in all it was a great experience, but I think brick work is faster than mixing so much cob.
    I'll give updates when it finally bakes something and I compare to my Casa oven.

    That is a neat looking oven,

    I'll be curious to hear your reports about using the oven!

    Good work!

      The oven has done quite well on it's first full day of pizza cooking.
      We really pushed it.
      It produced over 60 small pies with pizza dough & topping donated by Arizmendi (SF)
      It took a little bit longer than the Casa 90 to come to temp, and it seemed to max at lower temp but it really performed well for being made out of local bay area dirt.
      I didn't stay to see how long it then retained the heat, but all in all it has been an amazing project. The insulating layer of cob really worked. The oven was never hot on the outside, just pleasantly warm.
      A person that has worked in restaurants commented that he thought it did as well as the restaurant ovens he's used. Pretty successful day.
