6" insulation under dome? - 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.

  • 6" insulation under dome?

    I wanted at least 4" of cal sil under the dome, and got two boxes in 1.5" thick boards. Any reason to go over 4.5"? I have enough boards for 6", but I'm concerned about settling under the dome with that much (I think Lee encountered that) and suspect there's a law of diminishing returns after 4.5" of insulation under the dome. Any point to 6"?
    Here's mine:

    Re: 6" insulation under dome?

    I am about to close my dome and have four inches of cal sil under my floor. It seems like a lot but I wanted to make it as well insulated as I could. Plus I got the skamol board fairly cheap and sorta close to my home.

    I don't think you would have settling or any compression of the board. It is pretty strong stuff compression wise. I am not sure if you would need more than four and a half inches. I am using my left over board to make an insulated door or two.

    Good luck with the build.

      I have 2.5 vermicrete and 2 FB board and I still see a small rise in temp through the floor after a long burn, We had an afternoon neighborhood party where I kept the oven at over 800 for 5-6 hours, the wood storage bin ceiling got to about 130 at hour 5 with an ambient temp of 80 so there is some heat being lost via the floor. I did not take regular measurements.. I guess I could have added more vermicrete....
