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.

  • New charcoal basket

    I made a charcoal basket using expanded metal for my Weber kettle and decided to see how well it performed in the wfo.
    It worked quite well in the cold oven reaching smoking temps (about 250F) in a few minutes and holding it there for more than 4 hours. I also made a temporary smoker door out of plywood with cutout vents to control air intake for the test and cook. I left enough gap at the top of the door for exhaust.

    George,
    I hope that expanded metal does not have any zinc plating or galvanizing on it. Zinc is quite poisonous and it's melting point is quite low, you wouldn't want any toxic gases floating around your oven.

      George,
      Is your expanded metal the same kind I see on all the competition smokers at the fair? I have used the same kind on my barbecue for the last 3-4 years. Those potatoes look yummy and nice rack too.

        Thanks guys. This is the same expanded metal people use to make charcoal baskets for their smokers. They normally use the wider grids for grates.
        I'm quite aware of galvanized metal when heated and its toxicity.
