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!

  • ***Fire Pit***

    Hello All,

    I know its early to start thinking about winter, But I want to plan my fire pit for close to the oven or maybe connected by a bench.. Does anyone have suggestions ? Is there any special needs for a fire pit, ie:heatstop, fire brick, etc,

    Once again thanks for all your help in advance, this website and its people has more knowledge on WFO's than all the others combined.

    When we had actual masons build a firepit for us at our old house, they lined the pit with firebricks, just in case we had a really big, hot fire. In investigating other landscapers, however, I don't think I've seen any others with a firebrick lining. Still, can't hurt. When I built one in the backyard as part of my oven project, I lined with firebrick.

          One thing we learned, is if you plan to have pavers near the firepit or walls, you really have to be more precise than they were about pouring the foundation. The foundation extended several inches past the edges of the firepit and bench, so the paver installers couldn't get right next to the hardscape elements. That's why you see a raised extra row of pavers lining everything. It was alright, but an imperfect solution, as my many stubbed toes can attest to.
