Portable oven? - 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.

  • Portable oven?

    Has anyone made a portable oven yet? I don't plan to stay in this house too many more years and don't want either to have to try selling this house with an oven, or to build myself another one. So I am interested in limiting my total weight and building it on a trailer. I believe I can make it rigid enough for transporting a limited number of times, unless I end up taking it to event sites and baking there...
    But the real question has to do with brick orientation to save weight. Let me say up front that I realize this idea will shorten cooking time w/o reheating, but I plan to gas fire it anyway as storing wood is not a good option for me. So I want to build a 36" oven with an 18" dome, but build it with the wide faces of the bricks facing in. In other words, the firebrick would only be 2 1/2" from inside to out. Has anyone done this, and with enough insulation on the outside, will it work, and how will it work?

    Visit Joe Pergolizzi's website at Home. He's building portables commercially, and you'll get some good ideas there.
