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.

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.


If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

    should the floor firebricks be layed flat or on the side? what is the difference?

    Re: floor bricks

    A 2.25" brick layed flat will take less time to heat up to a given temperature while a 4.5" thick brick set on end will take longer to heat up but yield a higher volume of stored heat
    up over a longer period of time. How deep you design your floor will affect the amount of wood you must buy and the time it takes to heat up your oven to your prescribed operating temperature.

      Is it twice as much to heat up bricks laid on their side: time- or wood-wise?

        I don't know if there is data to support this. Besides, fully saturating a firebrick is different than surface-heating. You would need a thermocouple embedded in the underside of both styles of floor and make a set of general assumptions regarding brick alumina content, wood type and size of fire, ambient temp, etc to get that comparative data. As in all things, your mileage may vary.
