Shish Kebab: Another Spiffy Thing I Probably Will Never Build - 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.

  • Shish Kebab: Another Spiffy Thing I Probably Will Never Build

    I got this idea last night from watching Alton Brown’s “Good Eats.” He dug a trench, lined it with brick, and filled it partially with sand. The trench was then filled with charcoal embers and the shish kebabs laid crossways across using the brick as support. Several people could sit around it and tend their own shish kebabs.

    I don’t have the knees for getting on the ground a lot, and although it’s hysterical to watch me get up, I just as soon skip that as much as possible. After a little playing around on Google’s Sketch Up I came up with a masonry table with the top partially cantilevered to allow chairs to scoot up under it. The drawback with that is that it’s really big and it’s going to stay where ever you put it forever. So my next thought was to use a table, cut a hole in the middle, attach metal duct work (well supported), line the sides with half brick and fill with sand for the same effect.

    I haven’t yet worked out what type of table to use. Metal runs the risk of transmitting the heat, and wood has a nasty tendency to burn. Plastic would be fun, if I really did want to have a molten mess of plastic in my backyard. Okay, so it needs some work -but I still think that it would be pretty cool!
