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!

  • Any clue

    We went for a Harley ride today looking at the fall colors. I ran across this thing - any clue to what it may have been used for. I was next to an old house that was all boarded up - pretty creepy.... I kept looking up at the second story windows thinking I would see Blair witch looking out - my wife kept looking back thinking someone was going to hit us on the head with a shovel. Really strange vibes at the place....

    Could be a kiln. Looks like a well built structure, I bet your local historical society would know the history.

        Rt - I'm thinking the floor was around 5 x 5. The opening was maybe 2 x 3 foot.The height of the chimney was HUGE, I'd guess at least 50 ft. high. That was one serious chimney! On the right hand side, there was an opening about 12 x 24 inches, obviously for draft. The vibes we got walking around the property was that it was a crematorium - but there is not a sole around there for 30 miles

          How about we stick with it being a kiln...a crematorium next to an old boarded up house is REALLY creepy. Strange that it is in the middle of nowhere...and with its size, they obviously were not trying to hide anything.

            Pretty neat. Are you going to check it out with the historical society? You have my curiosity up.
