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!
Reminds me of the joke my Dad always tells:
So after a weird series of events (which we will not go into right now) this Statistician ends up with his head in the freezer and his feet in the oven, and he goes: Well, on AVERAGE I feel fine...
Whew, 47 C is pretty hot. I think given the choice, I'd prefer the cold.
"Building a Brick oven is the most fun anyone can have by themselves." (Terry Pratchett... slightly amended)
I tend to agree with you Mark, I hate the cold as you cannot always get warm and when your finger tips and feet have lost feeling, you're in trouble.
But when it is hot, I can always turn on the air conditioner or as I usually do, just jump into the pool fully clothed.
Not good WFO time though!
Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!
The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know
Yeah its about 47 degrees in Melbourne right now.Thats 47 degrees FARANHEIT in the Melbourne(Florida) that I live in.Our palm trees are getting hit around here,citrus crops are wasted.I wont complain,its supposed to be back up in the 70's by thursday.
buck, count me in on the cold weather losses. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I only have frost burn, but I am pretty sure I have lossed 3 palms (maybe 5) and several smaller plants from the past 3 nights. Can't say I will replace them (would be about $3000) at this point. I lost a couple last winter.
What the heck is going on with this weather the past couple of years? Record lows the past three nights. A record 10 straight days below 60F (15.5C) Record rainfall in May, June, and November........
For those keeping score, the temps at my house the past 3 nights when I went to bed:
Fri = 28F, -2C
Sat = 24F, -4.4C
Sun = 28F, -2C
I am sure it was colder in the wee morning hrs.
Our high temp has been 30 degrees F BELOW normal for 4 straight days. I guess I didn't move far enough south 14 yrs ago.
