New door for our Pompeii - 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.

  • New door for our Pompeii

    New Aluminum door shown here is a work in progress.The door painted black is my old steel door that I have sold to a customer. I have put a temp gauge in this new door and may put insulation between the outer two layers of aluminum as well. The three layers of aluminum with air spaces keeps the outer aluminum face and handle assembly cool to the touch so not sure if insulation will be needed or not but I will experiment with things over the next little while.

    The unit with the circular ring on the bottom is to hold the door up off the ground and also tilted backwards to allow fresh air in at the bottom and hot air to escape up though the vent area. My last steel door I had made had a similar set up so I could hold the heat in some what and still keep a fire in the oven which is shown in picture attached. I have found this nice in the past for keeping a small fire going and cooking meats in a large cast iron fry pan.

    What do folks think about insulation.....will I need it? The air space seems to be working good for stopping the heat transfer for keeping the handle cool but not sure how well the heat inside the oven will be held inside with out insulation. What is nice right now is the door is light. If I was to insulate I would most likely go with the vermiculite and portland but this will add weight that I dont really want.

      I filled mine w/ vermiculite before I sealed it - didn't add squat to the weight.

        Not sure if it applies with a door but some people have reaction's to food cooked in Aluminum. I am not sure it translates to cooking with a door mad of Aluminum? Just something else to think about.

          I think it looks really cool. I would throw some extra fiber blanket in there if you have it and weld the sides although it probably isn't necessary
