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!

  • Camping and pizza

    I just got back from camping. Now I have to spend 4 hours catching up on the forum

    I started a new tradition with my kids on this camping trip. Our current tradition is hand whipped cream, blueberry pancakes ( with chocolate chips) and blackberry jam on the first morning.
    I decided that I could not go without my weekly pizza fix so the first night out I pulled out some premade dough balls ( standard FB recipe) and baked pizza on the BBQ. I used foil sprayed with canola oil for a pan and put it directly on the grill. I did have a little trouble getting the tops cooked correctly but the overall effect was still a great eating experience. My kids have decided that forever more I must make pizza the first night of camping.
    I held some extra dough in the cooler for 3 days and then made a fabulous flat bread with it to go with the BBQ chicken. Same process. Canola oil, foil and onto the grill with hot coals.

    Re: Camping and pizza

    Hi Bruce, camping certainly sets up chalenges in cooking, especially when you are way out back, sometimes hundreds of kilometers away from the nearest town as it is here on central Australia.
    On my 4 wheel drive adventures, we often first prepare a good campfire to generate considerable soals for cooking anything from roasts to bread (or a swe call it over here bush daper. basically flour and water (with a few additive if you prefer). We have even had silver service, formally dressed with all the trimmings and 3 or 4 courses, tables, cloths, candelabras, the works.
    But cooking is usually made in camp ovens (which are traditionslly heavy cast iron lidded bowls) but are now being replaced with Bedourie's.

    (Camping and outdoor cookware, fish smoker, cookers and frypans - Southern Metal Spinners)

    These are fantsatic to cook anything in, even pizzas if you so desire. Simply place a good sized bed of coals on the ground besides the campfire, place your bedouri on it, oil the base or butter/cooking fat the base (non stick) and place you dough or ingredients in them. You can put the lid on and place more hot coals on the lid. They the behave exactly like an oven and you can cook anything that you can in a domestic or wood fired oven, only smaller.
    Just watch out that the bottom doesn't get too hot and burn dough ingredients. If you want to cook more slowly, then reduce the amount of hot coals beneath the Bedourie.

        Re: Camping and pizza

        I have the large one which basically is 2 metal spun frying pans which stack inside one another (space and weight saving) and are so versatile. They are made just down the road from me and very good value, Mine are 10 years old and I have never used the old traditional camp oven since. Thoroughly recommended product. The company has also seen and developed associated products for the camper.
