ash slot - 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.

    the plans do not call for an ash slot, as the alan scott plans do. i know the pompeii oven is mostly used as a live fire oven, so ashes stay in the oven, and can be removed when cool, but this oven will work great for bread, where hot ash needs to be removed.

    i see no reason why an ash slot cannot be added - please let me know if i am missing something.

    to make it, i plan to block off a section of the framing, and pour the slab around it,so once removed, a hole will be left, forming the ash slot.

    any advice / guidance along these lines?

    There are quite of few postings on the ash slot -- both for and against. :-) If you search they will come up. There is nothing to keep you from adding the ash slot to a Pompeii Oven -- which are often used with only retained heat.

    If you are using insulating board (such as FB Board) rather than vermiculite concrete for under oven insulation, you will want to seal the board as it faces into the ash slot. You do not want ceramic fiber insulation exposed to the inside of your oven -- or anywhere else for that matter.

    If you use vermiculite concrete, then you can just leave that layer exposed.

      Don't put the hole dead center - you need that workspace. It's logical to put it on the side that you're going to be building your fire. You can also set in a fireplace ash door, so you won't be loosing stuff down the hole. They are substantial cast iron, so it should hold up.
