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!

  • Pompeii style Pizza oven

    Hello Forum members.

    Am new to this forum and did'nt know which thread to post this on so took a chance and posted it on a new thread.

    Built this in the summer on a shoestring using nearly ALL reclaimed materials. Used 3 types of bricks in the construction, using reclaimed full wire-cut clays for the dome. The form for the dome was made from cardboard ( 12 pieces 1 meter in dia, 50 cms in height, interlocked into eachother, making 24 ribs, strenthened with covering strips of newspaper papiermache)

    The total interier dimentions of the dome are 1 meter by 50 cms laid on top of the first coarse laid in the soldier fashion.

    Used much research on the web plus general building knowledge to build the beast. First full firing (recently) was successful, but used wrong wood/fuel to achieve full heat potencial. Would like help with which wood/charcoal? to use when I fire it up again (soon) please.

    Have many more pics of the project and about a thousand questions to ask. any thoughts or comments on my little wood-oven would be gladly recieved.

    Regards Terry (C.F)
