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!

  • Best of the Month

    We are kicking off the Best of the Month (BOTM) program starting November 2007. Each month, I will make a posting in the Chit Chat category calling for nominations. You can nominate just about anything, including a photo, an oven, a part of an oven, a thread, a joke, a recipe, etc. Anyone can make a nomination, and you can voice your support for someone else's nomination by seconding it.

    On (or around) the 15th of the month, I will review the nomination thread, and pick the five nominations that have the most support. If there are more than 5 nominations, the ones with the most seconds will qualify.

    Then, I will create a poll with the 5 nominations, and we get to vote. The winner wins. :-)

    For a prize, I was thinking that we would send a 5-pack of Caputo pizza flour. If the contest becomes popular and grows, I am happy increasing the size of the prize.

    OK? Let's see if this is fun.

        LOL. I am but a mere brick oven merchant. Maybe we should nominate someone to be the lord of the forum.

          The King masquerading as a common brick oven merchant... Of Course! This simple ruse affords the king to move liberally among his subjects, unencumbered by the trappings of his station! Brilliant! Huzzah! Huzzah, my King!

          And with this post, I am now a Laborer and will happily begin to mix the concrete. What's the percentage of volcanic ash?

            What ever happened to the Best of the Month surveys? Seems like we missed out on a ton of great ovens that popped up over the summer.

              I agree! Whatever happened to James??? :-)

              We will kick this off again for November 08 -- and I will make a nominations thread shortly.

              Thanks for the reminder Mike,

                  Thanks, Travis. Perhaps we should wait until my oven's done and working (to be sure it doesn't crumble down)

                  So many of us have followed Les's build from the beginning, I'd hate to see that masterpiece not "officially" recognized.

                    James, My posts are disappearing. What's up? I was in an exchange with Les and both of us lost the posts. They started with my new photo posts Stefano
