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!

    hi all! A friend dropped in tonight with a massive red snapper that he just caught - it must be nearly 3 feet long! I said I'd do it in the wood oven for him. Any ideas on recipes? I could do it on a spit... Or on a hickory plank? Or bake it in foil?

    Baked in salt!!!

    Lots of recipes on the web for this. You basically season up the fish, stuff it with some herbs, then lay it on a bed of kosher salt mixed with egg whites (on a cookie sheet). You then cover it with the same mixture of salt mixed with egg whites. The salt crust hardens up and seals in the juice of the fish. Then when it is done, you crack the salt crust off...It is an excellent way to cook whole snapper...

      I agree. The local wfo restaurant does it this way when they have it as a special. Never had it, but it looks great!

        Hi Tim,

        Half your luck - a beautiful fresh snapper!
        I've baked snapper in the Weber many times but have never tried it in the Wood oven, so I will be keen to see how it comes out and get some details of how you did it.
        My two cents worth - when baking in the Weber the best tasting snapper seemed to be an Asian flavoured one. I used chopped garlic, chopped Ginger, Lemongrass and Coriander to fill the cavity. I scored both sides of the outside with three cuts and filled the cuts with slices of lime - poured olive oil liberally over the outside, along with a splash of soy sauce. Wrapped it all in Al-Foil and gave it a good bake.

          Re: recipe request: fish

          Interested in learning more about cooking whole snapper as I am planning to cook a 60cm red snapper for Christmas dinner and dont want to stuff up.
          Planning to do the Asian style and wrap in alfoil. Any tips on:
          1. Ideal temp?
          2. Door off with small fire? Door on with coals raked out? Or a bit of a compromise with door in opening but not sealed with coals and maybe small fire?
          3. How long do I need to cook for?

          Any advise appreciated. Prefer the KISS principle .
