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!

  • Beer Can Chicken

    I tried the beer can chicken (BCC) recipe last night. All I can say is: WOW!!!! That chicken was GOOD!!!!

    Oven temp was at 550F-575F and I left the chicken in for 1 hour 15 mins, rotating every 15 mins. I did have a small fire going on the side of the oven.

    I used half a beer can of pale ale, and I rubbed a dry rub on the outside of the chicken. That's it.

    Nice and crispy on the outside, and SUPER moist on the inside. Full of flavor and very juicy. I am definitely going to keep making more BCC as my cooking develops! You just can't go wrong.

      Thanks roobqn!

      Yes, the fire gave it a nice smokey flavor. I used oak, but next time I'll switch to a fruit wood (cherry or apple) for a better flavor.

        Good looking bird!

        When we do beer can chicken we use those stainless steel can holders and set the whole (bird, can and stand) in a cast iron fry pan. The stands make the bird more stable and having it in the cast iron pan both contains the mess and makes moving the bird around the inside of the WFO easy using an Ove Glove to hold the handle of the pan. For easy removal of the bird from the can and stand we have been using insulated rubber gloves. (We also use these to lift cooked pulled pork from the roaster). My wife got me a pair from these folks:
        BBQ Gloves [Texas BBQ Rub]

        The most we have done at one time is three birds and if you want to try some interesting recipes I suggest you check out:

          really want to try this - I would have though 575f (290c) would have been too hot - but obviously not ... looks lovely. My problem is getting the chicken through our pizza oven door. will have to get measuring first.
