Terracotta bakeware - 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.

  • Terracotta bakeware

    I notice that FB sells some Italian terracotta bakeware and highly recommend it for your wood fired oven if you're going to bake or slow cook in it.

    Yesterday I was searching ceramics shops in Gata and ran across a pile of rustic terracotta dishes. They were obviously hand made and had a rough texture to them. There were in three very dusty piles, with each piece separated by cardboard. We bought 6 pieces!!

    They are heavy and guaranteed for wood fired ovens. My favorite are the oval ones which have a pouring spout on one end and a clay chunk handle at the other end....allows you to drain off the fat and juices!

    The round flat one is interesting. I thought it might be fun for a pizza server. It's glazed....could it be a pizza stone? My pizza stone is unglazed....have you found glazed pizza stones?

    Now comes the cooking test....

    Hey Jim,

    I think you are going to really enjoy your bakeware -- there is something special about terracotta in a wood-fired oven. I think it has something to do with the way terracotta makes a moist, gentle heat.

    I've read that soaking your bakeware for an hour before you cook with it the first time helps cure it and minimized cracking.

      Thanks for the tip, I'll try the soaking.

        By the way James, I was in one of the local ceramics stores and there was a sign above the terracotta bakeware recommending soaking for 24 hours before using (the first time?). So that's what I did with the new stuff. Can't oversoak it I guess!
