Ash wood - 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.

  • Ash wood

    My dad just told me they have to have two very large, 35 year old ash trees removed from the front yard because they are cracking and my folks don't want to risk any roof damage should one of them come down. He asked if I want the wood for the oven currently under construction.

    Any thoughts on whether Ash would be good or should we stick with hard woods?

    Ash is pretty hard. I'm using a mystery tree which i suspect is ash, although I don't get the raging heat I get with other woods like oak. Really, you can burn almost anything that isn't stinky or toxic.

      By all means, cut it and cure it. Ash is a hard wood, baseball bats used to be made of ash.

        Ash is a very hard wood. They've been making baseball bats out of it since the beginning of baseball. I'm sure it burns well but I have no practical experience using it.

          Any firewood will work, but the best wood is free wood.

            2nd that.
            I've busted my ass chopping for the past week - a FREE oak tree from a neighbors yard.
            No driving 20 miles each way to the only quality firewood purveyor, loading, unloading, still having to split it for oven use, and best of all, no $160 per 1/2 cord. Still got another day of chopping, should have at least a full year of consumption once it all seasons.

              Great exercise. So you also save money by not needing a fitness club membership.
