I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

      Forgive my ignorance here, any food poisoning risks with drying it out like that? (assume usual good hygiene practices are followed)? Jerky is great

        I make the South African version of jerky "biltong" using a cardboard box with air holes punched into the side and adding a 25 watt light bulb and an old computer fan to circulate the air. Should be ready in about 3-5 days. I have never heard of anyone making this stuff in an oven...

            We have been making it every now and then, it does not seem to last long as my Family and I enjoy it a lot especially when having a cold ale.

            This batch has ABC sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Soy sauce, Ground Cummin, Ground Pepper, Salt and Honey
            Bloody hell, I've GOT to try this, I haven't had jerky in years!

              Your jerky looks delicious Doug. May I ask which cut of meat you use for your jerky?

                i've made jerky for years on a weber grill.. just a small fire with about 8 briquets and a handful of smoking chips.. i use the leanest, cheapest cut of beef that i can find, usually a round roast. string the strips on bamboo skewers and hang them inside the grill.

                  If you put some hot coals in a coffee tin punched with holes and then throw in some smoking chips you can impart some smokey flavour while the meat dries.

                    The cut of beef here in Australia is called Topside is has very little fat.
                    You can use any cut but why waste a good grilling steak on jerky.
                    Polo you need meat without any fat, a little marbling is ok, so trim off any fat, you also need to cut the beef across the grain not down the grain as it becomes to chewy.
                    Thanks for the tips Doug. I'll be experimenting soon. Maybe I'll try some venison. Not much fat in that.

                      Venison, rabit, goat, kangaroo, crocadile, beef, lamb, they all work well as jerky.
                      Karangi Dude,

                      When I went to the butcher to ask for kangaroo, and crocodile he thought I was nuts.



                      We had our first snow last night 8 CM and a low of -10C.

                        It's 10.30am here on the coast and about 28c,

                        Chip you could always pick up some road kill (just kidding) venison would be the go though.
                        It is deer hunting season here and my wife just told me that her brothers bagged 17 deer this weekend, Good hunting here.

                        OH, BTW the high today got up to -4C
