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.

  • Whole Ham (Bone-in)

    Will be having a large family gatherine for Easter and would like to roast a whole bone-in ham, approximately 20 - 24 pounds.

    Does anyone have any suggestions, i.e. temperature (considering 450F) and time/pound (18 minutes per pound?)

    Any basting required?

    My plan is to build a big fire for a few hours to build up retained heat within my oven and when at temperature place ham in very large roasting pan and wait.

    Since hams are sugar cured they tend to blacken up alarmingly at the 450 level. The good news is that most cured hams are fully cooked out of the package, and you only need to warm them through.

    Fresh hams are another story. A full raw pork leg will take several hours, and you want to start it at the 450 level and leave it in the closed oven (no fire) until the thermometer shows the temperature you want.

    If you leave the layer of fat on the outside, no basting is required. It will be nice and moist.

      Richard, Dmun,

      There's another way to approach cooking a cured ham in the WFO. Julia Child, in her Way to Cook, has an excellent recipe for braised whole ham. Basically, the ham sits in a wine bath and cooks slowly, at a low heat. You'd need a large turkey roaster with a lid to pull it off in a WFO. It's a bit different than a baked ham, but very tasty nonetheless.

        Brined pork ham baked on WFO at 250°C by five hours.
