black ash when cooking pizza - 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.

  • black ash when cooking pizza

    I got a nice fire going today and tried cooking pizza for the first time in my new brick oven! My main problem was cleaning the oven floor after the burning woods are moved to the side and right before the pizzas go in--what do I do with the black ashes? What can I use to move them so that the center will be clean enough? A lot of the woods did turn white but there were still some black ashes on the floor that made the bottom of my pizzas pretty black...

    Thanks in advance!

    A lot of guys use a piece of pipe to blow the ashes away from the area. You can also use a damp rag or mop for a quick swipe. If you use a brush, be sure to use a copper brush, not a wire brush.

    Good Luck

      You should not have black "ashes". Ashes are almost white, charcoal is black. You probably need to burn hotter/longer.

        Didn't we just have this identical discussion this week?

          Yup, he posted again and received excellent answers from the forum. I was working from oldest to newest and missed the second post.
