Chimney/Rain Cap - 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.

  • Chimney/Rain Cap

    I just got my duratech chimney and cap today. I got the 8 inch on both. These things are huge! I had no idea. I'm afraid my oven is going to look like a melon on a tooth pick (upside down of course). The spark arrestor/rain cap fit the 8'' diameter pipe but the actual cap is 15'' in diameter! It's like a metal pizza on top of a pipe. Is this normal?

    I just received my 6" Duratech. It seemed huge as well but nothing compared to the box. My 2ft long piece of Duratech was packed in a 5ft box. Sort of wondered what the heck I ended up with when I saw the huge box.

    It is kind of funny that all the dimensions are pretty clearly spelled out then when you actually have it in your hands it seems so big.

      Yes, it's normal - they all look like there's a big bulb on the end. The large size helps both work better - that large overhang will help prevent water from getting in and it lets the exhaust cool just a fraction as it leaves the chimney making it easier to catch the sparks (little stuff that might have passed through will extinguish before reaching the screen).

        Thanks for the insight. took the materials outside to the oven and they don't seem as bad out in the open.
