New guy and my new portable brick oven in Oregon - 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.

  • New guy and my new portable brick oven in Oregon

    Hello all,

    I'm new to wood fired and brick ovens, so forgive if I use wrong terminology or otherwise miss speak.

    Prior to becoming a maintenance mechanic at a glass factory, I spent 25 years as a pastry chef in small bakeries. The love of baking is bringing me back to baking. I've always enjoyed cooking and baking but with only the wife and I, cooking and baking for only the two of us gets boring. Something led me to look up wood burning, brick ovens and then I started thinking of designing and building my own but a portable version!

    Yesterday, I invited friends over for a backyard Pizza party. Made up a batch of Sourdough from my own starter day before and had many ingredients ready to go. I had six different pizzas in mind, including a dessert pizza. Lit the fire about an hour prior to guests arriving, an hour after they arrived I started baking. In batches of two pizzas, we had a feast! I picked the toppings and let no one know what was coming next, only told guests not to fill up as more were coming. After a couple hours of gorging on hearth baked pizzas, my guests gave a huge Thank You and asked when next part will be :-)

    After I post some pics, I'll offer up details of my oven design. My avitar pic is of my portable oven.
