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!

  • 4th of July pizzas

    I cooked my first pizzas in my oven tonight, we did 16 pizzas for 14 people. I did 250g crusts and a variety of toppings..but mainly a garlic, pepperoni mix as that is a personal favorite. The pizzas were fantastic and I can see that the oven will be getting much use.
    I was a bit concerned as I have been curing the oven and had not cooked anything so I thought I was a bit aggresive in trying a party for the "maiden voyage". I started my fire about 2.5 hours early and it was a thrill to watch the walls go white. It was 108 degrees in the backyard this afternoon and my wife thought I was crazy to sit in front of the oven for that long watching the fire as the temp was creeping higher and higher, but there was almost nothing else in the world that I would have rather been doing.

      I also cooked in my oven for the first time on the 4th. I was so excited I didnt let the oven get as hot as I should have. The fire slowed down after I pushed the coals over. It took about 5 minutes to cook each pizza. I have 4 dough balls left so I will do it again today. This time I will be sure to get the oven hot. Can you tell me who built your oven?

        jengineer - fortunatly I work from home so I no longer have to commute past the Folsom reservoir, but the last time I looked (a few months ago) it was lower than I had seen in years, and with the heat we have been having I can only imagine it is even getting lower.
        nyknicks - I built it myself. I still need to finish the enclosure and such, but the oven is functional!
