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.

  • Vacuum sealing tucker.

    Fellers,
    Any experience with the manual vacuum unit named "Pump n Seal"?
    The advertising blurb reads well, and it would be invaluable when camping for storage of 'roo cuts. (Or bald-eagle drumsticks).

    A search on vacuum sealing only produced James' question re cheese storage. Did I not search properly?
    Thanks one more time.

    Re: Vacuum sealing tucker.

    Funny name, pump and seal. Sounds like, uh.... Ah, never mind.

    Never heard of it. We've got the Food Saver (tucker keeper) and one or two other types in the states. They're awesome with dry foods. Moist and wet foods make a mess when it the moisture gets sucked into the machine.

    The bags or rolls that you custom cut are a bit spendy, but worth it if you have the patience to clean them out and re-use them. Smoked salmon fillets were a pain in the pooper because even small remaining bones would puncture the bags and destroy the seal.

      I love mine Jeff!

      Great for large pieces of cheese that can't be consumed at one time.

      Not so good for ground meat, but it can be done.

      The moisture, as George says, can be a problem.

              I bought a Pump-n-seal some years ago. The pump is lightweight plastic and slid all over. If one were equipped with three hands, it would work perfectly.
              I sent it back and explained the problem. I got a nasty reply. So, I bought a real vacuum sealer. Pump-n-seal sucks.

                    VAcume sealers are great! for the home use partially freeze your meats or fully freeze the sauces/liquids and then seal. Works great!

                      Re: Vacuum sealing tucker.

                      We have one we use for avoiding freezer burn on Bambi. Lots of Bambi. Ground Bambi, Bambi sausage, Bambi steaks. Can you tell my husband got 3 last fall? I think I made close to 100 pounds of sausage. My KitchenAid (I know it isn't the best, but good old Dinah is a trooper) plowed thru it all.

                      We don't have trouble with liquids from ground meat, but we also tend to get it pretty dry before we seal it up. I did have some trouble with a couple of the sausage recipes which had added liquids, but you get pretty good at stopping before you suck it all up where the sun doesn't shine... and bleach water cleans out the trough pretty well.

                      Works really well to prevent freezer burn. don't forget to label the bags, though, or you don't know what you're looking at (except in my case, I do know. chances are...it's some form of Bambi, )

                        Re: Vacuum sealing tucker.

                        Yes! Label them. How many times have you said to yourself - oh, ... I'll remember. I can't say how many times I've played "Guess what this is?" as I stared at a frozen bag. Of course, a slow thaw usually proves me wrong.
