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!

  • Weekend Backyard Bread Oven Article

    Hey, did anyone else catch the article on 'adobe' bread ovens in the Nov/Dec issue of Grit? It's really cob (adobe is sun dried brick which are then used to build with and are plastered over; cob is wet 'brick' or cobs built in place to form a single whole and allowed to dry) but I thought it was really cool to see it in a more mainstream publication. It's billed as a weekend project whch is actually doable if you have good knees. I don't so mine will be on a much higher stand (assuming I ever get a place of my own to build it on - that saga continues - sigh).

    I haven't checked to see if it's online. It might be since the new issue is out. But whatta I know? I'd had no idea Grit had gone glossy until last January...

    Haven't seen the article (what is Grit?!) but I had considered building a cob oven before I found the FB pompeii oven. Cob is a building form I wouldn't mind exploring sometime in the future as it looks interesting and fun to do, and it's got all kinds of possible applications.

    As for a place to build your oven ... hang in there, it'll come!

        Yea, a fellow cob fan! Thanks for the encouragement, Sarah.

        And thanks for the link, Alfredo.
