N.Y. Strip Steaks - 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.

  • N.Y. Strip Steaks

    I decided to try out my new "Tuscan Grill" with some NY strips. They cooked to medium-well in about five minutes at near pizza temp. Still, they were very juicy and much more flavorful than on a gas grill.

    The steaks sure look good. I imagine 2 - 3 minutes (at 650 - 750 F) would be medium rare. How far is the grill off of the pizza oven floor and what type of wood were you using?

      To be honest, I'm not completely sure about the wood. I have a stack of mixed hardwoods, mostly oak, maple and locust. The grill is cast iron with 4" legs. I set it on the hearth and raked about a 1' layer of fresh embers underneath.
      i was surprised how fast they cooked. Next time, I'll turn them sooner for sure. I prefer something closer to medium-med.rare.

        We find the best way to obtain a rare steak is to have the steak cut thicker. If you cook a thin steak for less time you do not get the great crust that the wood fired oven can produce. See our thread Steaks on the Tuscan grill from last fall. Carl

          You can cook steaks directly on the coals. You don't need a grill.

            I have not tried cooking direcly on the coals. We also cook whole fish but rather than on the grill we cook on a sheet pan on top of coarsely chopped fennel and carrots. The fish cook beautifully and come out as though the were grilled in about 8 min or so. I'll post a picture the next time we do fish. Carl
