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!

        Sweet!
        I know from experience what went into that oven. They spent a tidy sum on labor charges.
        Beautiful work.

            Guess If I stick with the igloo look on the next one I have something to shoot for. I was pretty proud of my mosaic work until I saw this oven.

                ...Yeah, and then someone says something nice about your oven, and all you can say is: "Well you should see the ones on the forum!"

                  We know a rich guy, who owns a gazillion dollar sailboat, which he used to sail the Mediterranean a few summers ago. The first thing he said when he got back was that the other boards in the harbors were bigger, and he was ordering a bigger boat. A sad, but true, story.

                  I think oven envy is much more benign. :-)

                    I think this is primarily because members realize that this hobby/obssesion is developing at a rate unheard of a decade ago. I know it has been said a million times before but it is all down to James, whose primary business is to sell ovens, who has created a forum that, I believe, will become the definitive source of information for self-build. I am certain a lot of other oven owners would love to incorporate some of the developements if they had to do it again.

                    My own oven has been built in the manner and with materials that has been used since time immemorial. As meyvelitepe, our other Turkish member, said "built by seniors" The mortar of my dome came in a flour bag from the mountains and I have salt under my firebrick hearth. He is building a Pompeii and believes that is the way forward in Anatolia. Progress!

                    Am I happy with it..............of course. It performs superbly. Would I change anything.........undoubtedly. I have yet to explore the reaches of 'plasma fire' and baking is a mystery that I have yet to embrace. We built before finding Forno Bravo and see everything in a different light now. The last 2000 years of WFO for me has been compressed into 6 months and I know the next one will be better.

                    And RTf..............without wishing to sound patronising.............the mosaic on your oven is superb...........truly

                        There is no bad oven per say. I believe it's a labor of love. Everyone jumps in with a different skill level; and learns as they go along. The oven becomes an extension of themselves. Some like the igloo. Some like an enclosure. Some like stone; ect. Each and every one is beautiful. And i'm sure that if the same person cooked a pizza in ten different ovens; they'd all be good.
