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!

                    Okay, now you have to explain why it's Michigan and Nebraska!

                    Seems like only Michigan responses.

                    We should do a MI get together this summer!

                      I just finished my oven last summer. I built a manifold on the front to facilitate my stacks. I have a primary and secondary stack. I built them with high heat mortar. It seems it didn't get hot enough to cure. So when we had that huge wind in late December it blew the stacks off. When the weather breaks I will rebuild it with regular mortar, the area doesn't get hot enough to warrant using high heat mortar. This project shouldn't take more than a couple of hours. Anyway I have had a lot of fun with it already. I am just south of Jamestown if you ever want to see it. Word of warning, it is buried in snow at the moment, you might want to wait till a thaw.

                        I want to dispense a little of my very limited wisdom. If anyone is considering building an oven, I would strongly suggest a 42 inch. As I have used mine I find that anything smaller would be very limiting. In that pizza requires an ongoing fire to continuous cook, the fire takes a large portion of the available space. I am just getting to "know" my oven but this is one lesson I have gleaned from my limited experience.
                        I have also built A small shelter near the opening of my oven to allow shelter, lights and a work surface near the opening of the oven.
