Do I need to re-cure? - 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.

  • Do I need to re-cure?

    So, I completed my dome in in July... It took me about 6 weeks on and off from start to finish. Then life took over and I got super busy and didn't have time to enclose the dome. No problem, because I live in Southern California and we have had no rain.

    Last weekend I started to frame the enclosure and I got it pretty well framed; finishing the framing yesterday.

    Today it is pouring rain! I tried covering it with plastic, but with the framing in place it is not easy to cover. Needless to say, my dome will be getting wet.

    Do I have to go through the entire curing fires process again before I finish the insulation and enclosure?

    Hi there,

    Short answer, yes. You need more curing.

    I would let it dry for a couple of days then put a small fire in it. Let the oven slowwwly come up in temp. Maybe a couple days of small fires. Firebricks can suck up a lot of moisture. You need to slowly drive that water back out. Heat it up too fast and the steam will start breaking stuff.

    In the meantime you can go ahead and insulate with your blanket and continue building your enclosure. The steam will go through the blanket.
