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!

      Re: Free Firewood in Tampa, Clearwater FL

      My problem is where to put it.....I've already made 2 trips and brought back the equivelent of 1/2 cord each time. Today I'm headed to Lowes to get the chain link posts to build the storage rack shown on another post.

      I don't know how long the lumber will be available. Seems a couple of adventurous guys struck a deal with all of the millwork and cabinet shops in the area and started hoarding all of the cut offs. There plan was to create glued and pressed hardwood fireplace logs using a non volotile soy based glue. They never got the project off the ground and left the property owner with a parking lot full of this lumber.
      I spoke with the property owner yesterday, he is commited (to a point) in finding a use for the wood, understanding it has value to the right people. Also, his removal cost are going to be pretty high, I'm guessing at least 12-15 of the large 30 cubic yard dumpsters would be packed full.

        The moral of the story: Don't start accumulating materials before your business is in the prototype + business plan stage.

        Fire logs in Florida? Maybe coals to Newcastle next

          Yeah, I got a chuckle out of him telling me there plan was to produce logs here. Although there quite a few homes with fireplaces and even more with backyard chimineas, they are only used a few evenings a year...no volume sales of wood here. Guess they had a grand nationwide distribution plan.
