Brick count - 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.

    i am going to buy my firebricks this week and was wondering if you know
    how many you used for your 36inch pompeii dome, which is the size i am
    going to built.

    We used 168 firebricks (9"x4"x21/4").
    Please keep in mind that we used 12 bricks out of 168 to build an additional
    insulation layer that many consider to be quite unnecessary.
    I'm going to buy about 20 more to build a flue support and to finish the
    Hope this will help,
    PS We get our firebricks from a local brick factory ($.90 a piece).

      thanks for the count!!
      what do you mean by an addiltional insulation layer - wouldn't the
      brick add additional thermal mass?

      i hope you will be able to post a few pictures ........

        Hi Simone,

        I'm going to build a 36 inch pompeiian too. Have you made any progress on yours? How large a stand did you build?

          36" brick count

          Hi Manny,

          Good to see you here. After the oven, we'll get you hooked on Italian flour. :-) Simone's oven is beautiful, and she is in the process of putting the photos (there are many) on this forum - they are already on a Yahoo Group.

          It's up to me to get the right brick counts and materials lists for the 36" oven on the standard Pompeii oven pages, and I will dop that shortly.
