Oven Build In Missouri - 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.

  • Oven Build In Missouri

    Well, I started building this oven last summer....I planned on finishing it last fall but I had an accident at work and got layed up for a few months....then the Missouri winter......I finally got back to it a few weeks ago.
    I built the chimney last week. One morning I took a small log out of the wood stove and threw it in the oven. It drew well- which was a relief because I know my dimensions are off some.
    I plan on raising the chinmey more and building the doorway out some. Other than that, I think the masonry is done.
    I have a few questions on how to insulate the dome. I have a good supplier of fiber blanket in the area. If I Insulate the dome with 3" of FB do I still need to cover that with insulating cement or can I can I leave the FB 'exposed' but inside my enclosure.
    Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    "can I leave the FB 'exposed' but inside my enclosure. "

    Yes. It is best if it is secured in place somehow, such as loosely bound with some stainless steel wire. Also, ensure good drainage and ventilation for your enclosure, moisture in the insulation greatly reduces its effectiveness.

      I would use the blanket and then just fill the enclosure with loose vermiculite to keep everything in place as well as extra insulation. Everyone says you can never have too much insulation. Vermiculite is not very expensive at a growing store. Just a thought.

        Here's hoping the completion of your dome is swift and the pizza is delicious.
