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!

  • ... and what the neighbours cooked!

    I have now had my oven "cooking" for 3 weeks now and have found that my neighbours also want to use it for their cooking. It's just as well that i didn't make an oven that was too small.

    I did 10 pizzas on Saturday night and then did pork ribs on Sunday which went into the oven at about 3pm when the oven was at approx 160C. I also soaked some corn that was still in the husk in water for an hour and threw these straight on the oven floor to cook for an hour. The ribs were great and I was particularly impressed with how good the corn was.

    The neighbours slow cooked a leg of lamb and roasted potatoes and the good thing about owning the oven is that you can demand a tasting tax for the use of the oven. The lamb was succulent and very tasty and the roast potatoes were crispy while being fluffy inside. I would have thought that 160C would be too low to cook the potatoes well but my teenage son declared that they were the best roast potatoes he had ever had.

    We may have to put a gate between the 2 back yards so they have easy access to the oven.

      If they had their own oven I'd lose the option of my "tasting tax"

        I'm not sure that I would let the neighbour actually use my oven, but I often give both neighbours pizzas which seems to keep the relationship on a sound footing and eliminates smoke complaints!
