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!

    No bread tonight. Just a good old fashioned pizza party.





    Gotta love the way that flame follows the arch.

      No, it hasn't significantly changed since the first time I saw the crack despite a hell of a lot of fires. If I compare pics from months ago, there is a bit of change on the third course up, but it's very minimal.

      I'm not the least bit worried, The entire oven is encased in concrete block which has every void reinforced with rebar and filled with concrete. The rebar reinforcement is epoxied into the slab. The slab is overbuilt and reinforced to a ridiculous degree. There is, literally, no place for anything to go. Barring the sudden appearance of a wrecking ball, I'm certain that oven will be standing long after I'm gone.
