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!

      I have to second that. Not to diminish the fine work of other members, but this oven (and garden space) is beautiful. Unless someone else has a jaw dropping surprise we have yet to lay eyes on, this should be a landslide.

          Not much point in nominating anyone else this month, is there?

          Btw, I vote that we wait until Les has finished his dome and nominate him next month. If I had to decide between those two ovens I think I'd have to end up not voting at all...

              Right, lets make this month's voting really difficult...

              I'd like to nominate Carl for his really cool oven made out of recycled materials and using a different kind of insulation and a completely different building technique, also an improved mk 3 door which doesn't burn. (Can't locate his thread right now, but I'm sure you all know which oven I'm talking about)

              And I'd also like to nominate rafv's finished brick oven (http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...ness-4376.html) - another really cool set up...

                  I want to nominate Les for both his great brickwork (incredibly accurate), and also for his photos. Not only informative, but they are artwork themselves.

                    I gotta second it.
                    Unless it eliminates him from next month's voting... (which should be when he closes his dome in)

                      Shoot.....don't eliminate Les from next month....I've been waiting for him to "get there". Sure don't want him to miss out on well deserved recognition. I attempted the cut to fit build method, and until Les came along I thought I did great work.......He has elevated "cut to fit" to an art form. That is one patient man.
                      Hate to say it, but with maburton's completed oven and garden space, it is going to be tough for anyone else to beat him unless they too are completed.

                        I must agree.
                        Did Maburton build the whole thing?
                        No contractor or anything?

                            Dave, good point on maburton. That would certainly sway my vote.
                            Taking nothing away from a breathtaking project, it does make a difference to some of us if it was DIY or a "let me get my checkbook" project when asked to compare with others. I'd like to compare apples with apples.
                            Anyone know for sure?

                              I'm pretty sure he said he did it all himself--I know I saw pictures he posted of him in the process of doing it. And he said it was his first time doing masonry. All the more reason to be impressed!
