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!

  • WBO Pizza Party at campground w/ portable oven!

    Last weekend, I set up my portable WBO at our Wooden boat club campout at Paulina Lake camp ground in central Oregon. Little info, my oven is quite small, about 32" long, 24" wide and 16" tall. All held together with gravity only, after the campout we take it apart. Uses close to 100 red clay bricks and some custom steel frames.

    Early Saturday morning I fed my sourdough starter and noon-ish I mixed a large batch of dough from that starter for the evenings pizza party. There were an estimated 30+ people coming. I set it up that I would fix the crusts and pass off to a helper who sauced and cheesed the pies then each family or couple would load their fave toppings. In between hand trowing dough in the air, I would bake pizza's. By end of the evening, I had baked 11, 16" wide pizza pies, man I was beat !

    Me, my oven and some homemade tools:

    Everyone had a great time, wish I could have seen the looks on the faces of the other campers eating their fire burned hot dogs and canned beans !
