Minor question about insulation - 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.

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.

  • Minor question about insulation

    I have three inches of insulating board...so the bottom face of my floor and of the surrounding base wall of the dome start three inches from the hearth. When I wrap the dome in a few inches of InsWool do I need to insulate below the three inch mark, which is an area that will have no direct exposure to the firebricks...or can I fill that area with, say, gravel, so as to save the InsWool for other parts of the construction?

    Re: Minor question about insulation

    Your walls and floor all store heat and will loose heat on the backside. So you want to insulate all around, even if its not directly across from exposure to fire on the inside, its still part of the thermal mass and heat storage. Kinda like hanging your trap door open on your thermals if you know what I mean?

      Yeah, I'm leaning toward filling that bottom three inches with loose (packed) vermiculite. I don't really want to pack the InsWool right down to the hearth. It seems wasteful, and furthermore, I'm not sure I should have fluffy stuff at the hearth, which it might get wet from seeping water. Vermiculate, then fluff from there on up is what I'm thinking.

      BTW, gorgeous oven.
