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!

  • Cook steak on the hearth floor?

    Anyone ever try it - cook a steak like a pizza? I bet it would be good, but I figure I would ask before trying it. I'm still pretty new to this having only had my WFO for seven months.

    Not yet, but the "dirty steak" method works well (I tried it one time, just to say I did). The Tuscan Grill really works great, and is now my preferred method, I don't use my gas grill for steak nearly as often as before.

      I have the Tuscan grill, but it is all the way in my garage which is like 40feet from the grill! Way to far to walk. I just think it would be cool
      to slap a few steaks on the oven floor and let em cook.

        Are we talking about the same Tuscan grill? I bought mine specifically for use in my oven......cast iron, 4" legs, about 1 sq ft in size...available here on FB (I bought mine elsewhere, sorry James - was before you started carrying them). It slides easily into the oven over a bed of coals.

          Hmmm that's really interesting... I definitely will try that...

          I love bleu steak, so I don't really care if it cooks through either...

            Yes I have the same grill. I was just thinking - do I need the Tuscan grill if I can just move the coals over and throw a steak on the floor where it's nice and hot? Somebody has to have experimented with this. If not I
            may be the first.

              There are hearth cooks who throw the steak directly on the coals so...you might want to try that as well. You have to knock the ashes off but that seems to appeal to some!

              I have real concerns the hearth will cool too fast with a wet steak plopped on top and that it will steam more than char. Look forward to hearing what you think of the results!

                I have tried to cook a few steaks on the hearth and I find the results lacking what I want. It is correct that the floor will sear the steak, but I have tried a few Ribeyes and they always catch on fire because of the fat. It drips off the steak on the floor, or in a crack, and I have a grease fire. Stick with the tuscan grill. On a side note. The "dirty" steak rocks. That does work...and works well
