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!

      Re: Need a good Turkey receipe for the oven

      We brined a turkey according to a Cooks Illustrated recipe, highly recommend brining first. There are lots of recipes for brining, the last one Dave quotes is brined. I think we used 1 cup kosher salt per gallon of water. No sugar in the one we used. Cooks now lists two options, one with more concentrated salt for a quick brine (hours) and the one I use which brines overnight.

      The brine keeps the moisture in the meat - add that to WFO roasting and it's unbeatable!

        Just curious, has anyone added a metal can (i.e. coffee can) with water in it while they cooked a turkey? I use this method when cooking chicken on the gas grill and it really makes the bird moist. I do the chicken off heat (chicken off to the side of the hot burner, can on the burner, or bird on the rotiserrie, can on a small gas burner.

        Key is making sure the water slowly steams/boils.

        I have not tried a turkey, but will have a few spares around to try this November in the pizza oven

          What are you looking for, an actual receipe or tips on how to do it in the oven?

          Anyway, here is my alltime favourite turkey receipe, passed down in our family for generations (three at least), and I thought I'd share it with you.

          1 large onion
          1 tblsp butter
          1 lb of bread (two days old)
          a lot of sage, chopped
          1.5 dl of broth
          1 egg
          a lot of pepper
          salt to taste

          Chop and fry the onion in the butter. Grate the bread into breadcrumbs (without crusts). Put everything in a bowl and mix to a dough, then stuff it into your turkey. Cover the turkey with bacon rind, wrap it in foil, and follow everybody else's advice on how long to bake it...

          It's not complicated or anything, but its soooo goooooood!

              Re: Need a good Turkey receipe for the oven

              Thanksgiving is coming soon.... Does someone have a suggestion on how to combine activities- Roast turkey, roast bake potatoes, apple crisp. Do they combine? I think that towards the end of the roasting turkey you can do the others, perhaps put in the crisp at the very end, because the turkey needs to set.

              Perhaps, to be fancy flat bread then turkey.
