Summer Kitchen building project - 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.

    Well, the almond trees are blooming!!

    I started the summer kitchen project now that the WF oven is up and working. I've found an old stone sink for the port side of the oven and am building an open firebrick hearth on the starboard side for grilling and rices. I disassembled a gas BBQ that will now occupy the open hearth area, but can be removed for wood fires in that corner. Both of these are separated (or will be) by a slab of counter top. The hearth corner will have firebrick on the corner walls.

    Basic european building brick construction that will be tile trimmed and stuccoed. I'll post pictures as I go.

    Growing up in what was once rural Fair Oaks near Sacramento california we had horses running down our street, peacocks in the back yard, an orange grove way down the road (must have been at least 100 meters, but to my short legs that was Really Far). Opposite the orange grove was a neighbor who had about 100 almond trees. I remember asking dad if we could go play in the snow down the street. A wonderful smell. Dad was able to catch the moment in a wonderful color slide of these almond trees loaded with blooms and a good portion blowin off in a light winds and he ground also littered with blooms.

      Step one....set the blocks to hold everything

      Well, the first phase is done...I've put the foundation blocks in place....

      ....will need 3 or 4 people to set the stone sink...(Where the gas BBQ is now)

      next major activity is to do my firebrick hearth for BBQ & Paella, on the right.

      Almond trees....wonderful....I took a picture of Vaughn yesterday under an almond tree in the mountains...bee's were buzzing in the blossoms...she said it smelled like honey....interesting comment! (If you look carefully you can see the bee boxes way up the mountain to the right)

        Almond trees... We have about two dozen at home, and eat them when the almonds are still green. They get annihilated by parrots when the nuts are ready, so I'm trying to convince the parents to harvest all of them in their green stage. Green almonds have amazing flavor and texture. They're like a vegetable when they're immature. I want to try pickling them. Anyone done any cooking with them?
