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.

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Redneck oven tools....

    I've seen a number of circulated e-mails with pictures of "redneck" items....

    ....but I'm a Redneck at heart sometimes....so...

    How about your "Redneck Oven Tools" post....(James/FB has some great oven tools.... but now and then you just have to improvise and grab whatever works....)

    Here are some of mine....

    ...for a fire poker I'm using a bougainvillea branch. The spikes allow you to grab wood and move it around!

    ....I've got an old forged iron rod that was used to secure a large wooden door. I use it to grab and move my terra cotta around. Also provides a back up for the fire poker.

    ...I'm using 1/2 a wooden clothes pin as a wedge for my door to keep it tight.

    ...I bought a cotton mop and duct taped it to a pole for swabbing the deck.

    ....I've used cookie sheets as spare peels for preparing pizzas

    ...My ash bucket is an old galvanized Corona beer bucket.

    .... for my ash rake, I bought a low profile spanish garden hoe at the flea market for $5...does the trick

    .....And a blue plastic bucket to cover my chimney when not in use....keeps the rain out

    ....My last find is a broken oar? that I picked up on the beach of the atlantic. I use it to sweep my fire over across the hearth.

    They all do the job in a pinch...

    And my new oven gloves....no more red arms!

    XJ,

    To complete the collection you need a rusted wringer washer, a Ford F150 minus the front bumper and tailgate, several rolls of chicken wire and at least six non-functioning lawn mowers .

      Re: Redneck oven tools....

      I have one nonfunctioning lawn mower. I'm still using the cheap garden hoe I used to mix mortar as my oven rake/fire pusher/pot puller - I'm enjoying watching the handle char (does wood become heat tempered?). It's a little heavy for the job, but I'm more cautious now to avoid scraping the hearth bricks.

            (M) Wooden you lose your temper if you became over heated?

              I like the old cast iron grill with the legs on it (do I have that right?). Have you been grilling inside your oven. That's a lot of fun.

                Round grill with legs....

                Actually I took that round grill out of the trash bin down the road. Someone was cleaning out their garage and threw it out!!

                I think it was for grilling meats on coals and possibly paella. I'm going to have the legs extended a bit and use it on my open hearth in the summer kitchen.

                I've got a square tuscan type grill that fits through the oven door. Same deal, I've got a friend who welds and will put on some legs in exchange for pizza and wine!

                  Re: Redneck oven tools....

                  Have you tried a piece of thin pipe a couple of feet long to clean the floor of ash ? Works perfectly !
                  Also abit of sheet steel poprivetted to a long handled bbq flip from an el cheapo overflow store makes an excellent pizza paddle and if shaped correctly is ideal for cleaning out the ash. We do all return the ash to our compost heaps don't we ? Helps break down acidic leaves,

                    Hi David,

                    Great first posting. I like the ash and composting idea. Thanks.

                    I used to use a piece of 1/2 copper pipe left over from a house addition for moving ashes for a long time. It would eventually get hot in your hands.

                      I've been using a shopping kart to sift agregate. I made a fake dry lake bed for a commercial a few months ago, and made it from fireclay and play sand. I kept all the materials obviously, and have been sifting them for masonry use. The shopping kart works a treat..

                        I just upgraded my ash bucket for 6 euros at the flea market.

                        ...and found a use for those extra firebrick pieces.

                          No, blow through the pipe to move the ash. But be careful you rednecks, blow don't suck. That would be ugly ! The pipe is also really good for getting a stubborn fire going, you can direct a blast of air right where you want it.

                              That's the first time I've ever seen a email post about rednecks that closed with "Caio"!!! You sure you're a redneck??

                              We're a step up from full-blown rednecks!! We don't have non-functioning stuff. We actually use the rear van bench seat that's on the front porch - GRIN
