Stucco over 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.

  • Stucco over Blanket

    Couple questions here.

    Do I really need to put vermiculite over my blanket or can I just go with 3" of blanket?

    Can I put stucco directly over the blanket? If so, what should I wrap the blanket with to hold it down while applying stucco?

    If I really really must use vermiculite, which do you find easier to do. Loose vermiculite in chicken wire or a vermiculite/portland mix? How much of the mix do you apply?

    I just ordered my blanket so I'll have that for my first firing, hopefully by this weekend.. once I've had a pizza I'll start the weatherproofing steps.

    If you use enough FB blanket, then I believe that vermiculite is unnecessary. I used 4 layers on top and 3 layers on the sides without vermiculite. I covered the insulation with aluminum foil to keep it dry. Next came rebar, then plaster lathe, then finally the stucco. I am not certain, but you probably could skip the rebar and put the stucco directly on the plaster lathe. After a large fire, the stucco never got above room temperature. However the 3.5 in of vermiculite concrete in the hearth did not work as well. The morning after my first big fire the bottom of the concrete was 120 deg.
    Best of luck, I am one day ahead of you.
