Care of oven in regards to rain - 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.

  • Care of oven in regards to rain

    We have had some rainy weather recently and I am curious to hear any one's rule of thumbs for re curing an oven after a heavy rain or non-use for a while. I have been firing my oven twice a week recently and don't want to ruin it by not recuring after everytime it rains.

    Every oven is different, but I find about three long fires, lower than pizza temp are sufficient. You don't need to go right back to the initial curing schedule. We live in the tropics and the oven gets pretty wet during the wet season. The inside of my door was going mouldy this year from being so wet. I have an igloo style and a hand held to the outside of the oven tells me if the interior of the oven is wet. ie. it is hot to the touch.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      Great. That soothes my concern quite a bit for using it right after showers or while it is sprinkling. I think that using it while it is raining could be beneficial, as the water just evaporates before it can penetrate the oven.

        Hi Bravo,
        David S. is right. We recommend doing a mini cure if any rain gets into your oven. Three days is sufficient. Also, you can always cover your oven during winter.

        Hope this helps!
