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.

  • English Yorkshire Pudding

    Has anyone tried making yorkshire pudding in the wood fired oven? Would love to do it to accompany my rib of beef.

    We do it all the time, as you know the pan must be oiled and smoking hot for it to work.
    We use small patty pans, they seem to work the best.

      Thanks for that do you cook them in the centre or the front of the oven. Any hints on temperature.

        Usually right near the flame, puds like it hot to cook, you have to rotate the pan often though.

          I tried some yorkshire puddings in the wfo for the first time last week. The oven was at about 600 degrees (F) with a small open flame (roasting environment). I used a muffin tin. Heat the fat in the pan before adding the batter. I turned the pan every 7-8 mins or so and they cooked up great!

          We don't cook YP in the states very often, and it was the first time my kids had tried it. They loved em. Reminded me of my days in Cheltenham...

                The American version of Yorkshire Pudding is the Popover. They are both made in a very similar fashion with the essential difference, as far as I can tell, being the Popover rises rapidly into a hollow balloon and holds that shape while Yorkshire Pudding is intended to collapse. Since my experience with Yorkshire Pudding is limited to a few attempts on my own, I will defer to those forum members with more knowledge and experience on the subject. Sadly, I have never had an authentic Yorkshire Pudding made by someone that knows what they are about.

                It occurs to me that since Popovers are served the moment they are removed from the oven (usually with butter - lots of butter!!), the only difference may be that Popovers don't have the time to collapse. It could be that a Popover would be a Yorkshire Pudding if given a little more time to droop.

                Does anyone know both of these items well enough to comment on the differences?

                  Re: English Yorkshire Pudding

                  Hi Thanks for that. English Yorkshire pudding is served with meat and gravy whilst a popover sounds more like a pancake or waffle if it has butter with it. What do you usually serve a popover with?

                    Hi, Annesteph

                    Am I correct that English Yorkshire Pudding is a side dish sort of like potatoes or rice? Popovers are served like bread and are eaten out of hand. In my family when I was growing up they were typically a breakfast item served with butter and jam. I occasionally serve them with the evening meal now.

                    Alton Brown has a good basic recipe on foodnetwork.com here:Alton Brown's Popover recipe. The picture with that recipe is the classic popover. It shows the popovers as they are baked in a special popover pan that allows maximum heat transfer. The ingredients are very basic - flour, eggs, milk, salt. Some butter for greasing the pan. The trick is getting the batter consistency just right and having a good hot oven.

                    If you click over to Paula Deen's recipe on foodnetwork.com you will see a picture of popovers with depressed tops . My mother would have thrown those away in disgust, but when that happens to me I eat them anyway. They are still good. I may just start calling them Yorkshire Pudding when they don't stand up right!

                    Popovers can be baked in muffin tins very successfully, although they won't rise quite as high. I hope you will try them. I'll bet they are fantastic with clotted cream!

                        Hi Bob

                        I certainly will give them a try sounds yummy.

                        Yorkshire puddings are a traditional side dish with roast beef over here. Sometimes a larger one is cooked with sausages inside and called Toad in the Hole. Thanks for all the info.

                          Annie and Al, thanks for sharing your Yorkshire Pudding knowledge with me and the Forum. I compared the YP recipe Al provided to the Popover recipe I provided and guess what - they are virtually identical! They both specify the exact same quantities of the three primary ingredients, flour, eggs, and milk and differ only in minor amounts of salt and the types of fat used.

                          It appears to me that the biggest difference is how they are served and what is put on them at table. If I cook Popovers and someone ladles gravy on it, then it becomes a Yorkshire Pudding. If you make a Yorkshire Pudding and I slather it with butter, it's instantly converted into a Popover! It's Alchemy!

                          Now I'm wondering - if I put gravy on this lead fishing weight will it turn into g...?
