Using Soapstone and possible applications - 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.

  • Using Soapstone and possible applications

    i found this site after i started my planning and prep for a wood fired pizza oven.
    I found two very old and heavy soapstone sinks via craigslist which I
    cut up with my gas wet saw..pieces varied in thickness from 1.5 inches to 2.5inches and glazed,and avg 18 in by24in.
    i know soapstone is used in fireplace surrounds and woodstoves.
    my question is :would soapstone be a good secondary stone under
    the oven floor "firebrick layed out in a herringbone pattern".
    if so how would you set it?
    can i use the other pieces for insulation over the firebrick dome?
    The one drawback on soapstone is although very dense and heavy it is very soft stone.
    thanks for all your response in advance

    I was going to use some soapstone I has as well but I was told that it could have an adverse effect on the floor's ability to heat up (you would have to heat both the bricks and stone to temp) and then possibly retain too much heat and burn your pizzas. I've used soapstone for many years on the grill and other cooking methods; it holds heat for a very long time. I cant imagine using it on the floor though as it's very soft but boy does it look good. I continue to use a few 3cm pcs as cooking griddles inside the oven. They work fantastic.

    Good luck,
