do I need a thermo blanket? - 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.

  • do I need a thermo blanket?

    I've completed the dome of my oven and ready to insulate it. In the plans for the oven it says to use 4-6 inches of vermiculite concrete, while others on the forum seem to be using thermo blankets with the vermiculite.

    Is it ok the use just the vermiculite concrete?

      I, too, used the blankeys. Got 'em from our beloved forno bravo store for a very reasonable price. I bought two rolls. Covered the dome three to four times. In Sacramento, vermiculite is @ $21 a bag. The blanket insulates better and costs about the same. I can retain enough heat to cook two days later.

        BUT if you can't get hold of or afford the blanket, Vermiculite will also do a good job.
