first pizzas....theres fire in that oven - 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.

  • first pizzas....theres fire in that oven

    well, now that I have built the monster in the back yard I've started cooking
    First thing I did was get that baby hot...really hot.
    Next thing I did was attempt to load the Pizza. Now I can tell you that a pizza can burst into flame. Yep instant charcoal along the leading edge. I don't really know how hot xhe beast is but I have ordered a IR thermometer

    IR Thermometers on sale on amazon $42 USD

    I have to be a little less enthusiastic with wood

    The Temp was still 475 fahrenheit the nest day. I even tried to bake some bread. You ought to see the big black charcoal balls I created still raw in the center.

    I did manage to get a couple pizzas in and out with a limited amount of blackened edges but I can tell you that wood fired cooking can be though

    I hear tell that over the first several uses you get an idea for how your oven will perform. And I think they sort of work themselves in, too, as they cure and dry. So, the fire that brought you carbonization yesterday might not do so tomorrow. The thermometer is a good idea though, so you know how the oven really is when you put in the pizza!

    I think many here also get the temp up higher than needed and let it moderate a bit before cooking- maybe that gets the oven evenly heated. It's a learning process, for sure!

    Meanwhile, I'm still stuck on fixing my arch crack. I've had to lay off firing while I get that nailed down- I'm going to do my vent as well, so I don't have to keep stopping and starting.

    Happy pizza!

      Sorry to here about the crack. Lots of ovens have them and they work just fine I'll get the hang of this oven. Knowing the temps seems to be essential to good cooking
