39.3" round cooking surface (Low Vault) Naples style oven QUESTIONS? - 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.

  • 39.3" round cooking surface (Low Vault) Naples style oven QUESTIONS?

    Thanks James for answering my previous questions, it was helpful. But I still have other Questions, if you don’t mind answering them:

    Interior Dome Height (Low Vault) Naples style

    In The Pompeii Oven™: Plans to Build an Italian Brick Oven
    A low (Neapolitan) vault design with a
    36” internal diameter the interior height is 17”

    My Question is:

    If you have a 39.3” internal diameter (Low Vault) Naples style
    why is the interior height 15.7”?


    - Build a Hearth Tray made out of Steel or Metal? What’s the difference between the two?

    - What materials-products should I use for the (light-weight) thermal & insulating layers hearth? In which order & thickness should each layer be to have a light-weight hearth?

    - How can I build a 2” thick cooking hearth?

    - If you’re pouring the hearth in a tray do u need rebar?

    Oven Opening

    - Curved arch made out of steel or cast iron, what do I use to attaché the curved arch with the bricks of the dome on each side? Do I use the same refractory mortar? (8 parts mortar sand, 3 parts Portland cement, 2 parts fire clay)?

    What should my exact insulation be?

    1” refractory coating
    1” insulating blanket
    4” vermiculite concrete
    1” stucco
    1” reveal

    If this insulation is right, in order and enough, then what exactly is:

    1" refractory coating made out of?
    1" insulating blanket?
    4" vermiculite concrete?
    1" stucco?
    1" reveal?

    thanks again James
