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

Hello,

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.

    For you users and potential oven builders in central Texas. I have been looking for a source of fire bricks and have been quoted prices from $2.50 t0 $3.50 each. Which makes a pretty expensive oven.

    I got lucky and found the Elgin Butler Brick Co. in Elgin, Tx a few miles east of Austin Tx in Butler, Tx. Brick cost $ .75 each. Dry fireclay in 70 lb bags $12.50 each. Hope this helps some of you out.

    There's also Town and Country Brick in Cypress, TX (a Houston suburb). Firebricks there are 97 cents each. And if you need a local supply of ceramic blanket or insulating board, there's Able Refractory Supply in Houston. I just got a box (24 square feet) of board today.

      Thanks for the info. I think that I am going to go with a 3-4 in vermiculite portland cement cladding over the oven and enclose with a wood siding and roof
      with a fill of vermiculite. Have plenty of vermiculite that was given to me. How far along are you with your with your oven? I am going to have to wait until I'm finished with my house addition to start on mine. Might get down to check yours
      out if okay with you.

        No problem at all. Not too far along yet. Just finished the stand last week, and I should start cutting bricks this weekend.

            Pretty much except for the brick facade. You can see pictures here in this thread: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f6/b...tion-2282.html

              Re: firebrick

              It's looking good. At least I don't have to worry about codes here. Am in the country and lots of space for me to build. I am planning on a grill and smoker as well as an oven. We are big time bar-b-qers here.

              Am really wanting an oven for bread baking primarily with pizza second. I am thinking that the shorter firing time for the pizza oven rather than a bread oven would be better. I only plan on 3-4 loaves of bread in one baking so the pizza oven is better for this reason.

              Am a home brewer as well a bread baker. EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY!!!

                    I'm gonna hijack this thread a bit - SORRY
                    reef, sour, I've always been intrigue by home brewers. I know I will never match the beer of my neighbors friend who owns a microbrewery, nor can I ever get more than 5 minutes with the guy to discuss. How about a good lead on where to go as a novice - someone who loves beer and would like to give home brewing a shot. What resources do you guys use?

                      Check out beeradvocate.com- all the info you could ever need or use. Look under groups and find homebrewing, lots of good info and people(kinda like this place ). Also google and see if you have any local shops near you. Usually very friendly folks that love to share knowlege. Support locals if possible, there don't seem to be a lot around and being able to talk face to face is priceless. Best of luck!

                        Hi, Daniel, welcome.

                        You want a brickyard or masonry supply, rather than a home center or lumberyard. Houston is a big city and there must be a lot of them. I did a google maps search for masonry supplies, and there were multiple choices.

                        Perhaps some of our Texas members will jump in here with specific recommendations.

                            Thanks for the welcome boys!!!!
                            This evening, I already found the firebricks. I paid 1 dollar (each) in Headwaters const. materials in Houston.
                            Another question: what kind of cement do I need use for those firebricks ??
                            There, did they say to me that it is possible to use portland cement, Is this truth???

                              Sorry I just noticed this thread. I got my bricks from Town and Country bricks in Tomball and from American Brick and Stone in Magnolia. I would not use portland cement, even for a fireplace. You're probably better off making your own refractory mortar, or ordering it from FB or your local refractory supply.
