Used fire brick - 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.

  • Used fire brick

    I think I have a source for some used fire brick (old pottery kiln), however, another friend told me that used FB is harder to cut than new. Thought I'd put this rumor to the test here :-) Anyone here have experience with this? Thanks,

    Hi Pdiff,
    I built my 40" Pompeii over 2 weekends using second hand fire bricks and there is no truth that they are harder to cut.
    The only bricks that I found very difficult to cut even with a commercial 14" diamond blade brick saw were the sample high temperature bricks that were amongst the 200 that I purchased were like cutting blocks of steel.
    These bricks are easily identifiable by their heavier than normal weight.
    I think you have been mislead by a misinformed contact.


    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

      Re: Used fire brick

      Thanks Niell. He wasn't trying to mislead :-) He had heard it second hand from someone who had built an oven here locally using used brick. I hope to see that work and talk with that person myself soon. At any rate, I can get some samples of this used brick before I start this spring and judge things myself. Good to get the voice of experience here first, though.
      Thanks again,
