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!

  • New Zealand Fuera Oven comes in for landing

    So at last my new Fuera Oven arrived today.

    The guys were awesome and did a early evening installation.

    Some serious air time to get it to the base pad. I was nervous as hell.

    Still - it all ended well and I am very happy. The guys stayed and talked me thru the first firing and offered a number of awesome cooks that I cannot wait to try out.

          I am really happy with the oven, and think it looks awesome. The quality of finish is very high and the service 10 / 10.

                Very nice, but those are large mortar joints ?

                  I guess there are some that are made smaller. But - Hey, Its a lot better than I could do myself, and the oven in general is extremely well finished.

                  I promise to post my first pizza pics (assuming I dont muck them up) to show that it cooks just fine !

                    Who made that wooden stand? That looks sweet!

                    Congratulations and welcome to the club...i.e. the Cool Guys with their own WFOs!

                      Thanks. The stand was made by the same guy - he mills the wood himself off his farm and is made from Macrocarpa (Cupressus macrocarpa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) - or what "you guys" call Monterey cypress.

                      They grow large down here - like 40m high. He is making me a coal rake and a pizza peel with the handles being made from the same tree.

                        so have you cured her up and firing some top kiwi kai pizza's yet? Just starting to put fires into my oven - got a party in 2 weeks and haven't finished all the insulating yet - pressure is on!

                          Hey Andy.

                          Yep - Cured it over a weeks worth of fires. The Fuera ovens hold up very well - no cracking and held heat really well.

                          While doing the curing we roasted a chicken (cooked fantastically) and made a really nice Hearth bread.

                          Super impressed.

                          Picked up some 00 flour and am going to have a crack at pizzas for the first time tomorrow. Complete with the big angry fire.
