Landing sizes - 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.

    I plan to leave 12" of landing between the oven opening and the front of the vent ('oven landing'), and 12" of landing from the vent to the front of the stand for food prep ('vent landing'). Does this sound right? Since the FB plans call for a 4" vent landing, will 12" much landing make it hard to reach into the oven? (I hope I have my landing terms correct.)
    Here's mine:

    The deeper your vent area, the further in you have to reach and this makes it more difficult to reach inside the oven. The downside about a shallow entry is that if the vent and flue are inadequate you are more likely to get smoke out the front. I believe with a well designed flue entry you can have a shallow without problems. Mine is only 5" deep, or 8" if you count the thickness of the outer decorative arch and I don't have smoke stains on the outer arch.

      I have 12 inches to the entry and 20 inches from there to the interior of the dome. My oven is 42 inches and there is no problem cooking, cleaning, or looking. You will be good.

          An important issue.

          I suggest you mock it up with cardboard and try out various combinations and see what works for you.

          Personalty I like a variable or angled landing depth. Best of both worlds - you can get close to the oven and still have a nice working landing. My depth to the floor varies from 11 inches to 50 inches.
