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!

  • Choosing a direction!

    Hey there everyone. First of all THANKS!! for all I have learned without even making my first post.
    I am planning a mobile oven. I want to build on a base that can be moved on and off my trailer.
    My trailer is a 6.5x12 with a single torsion axle.
    So far I have considered building a oven similar to the ovens built by Allen Scott in his workshops. I like the idea of the rebar supporting the base of the oven on the timbers. This seems to be the easiest way I have seen for a oven you can move, but I am all new to this so I am looking for your advice!!
    The other option I am considering is to buy a modular.
    I guess my final decision will be based on final cost of each and whatever direction you guys can give me. I know I can build a oven much cheaper than buying one but I am one of those people that look down the road, so if a modular is going to hold up twice as long I am willing to spend the $$.
    I have also considered casting a refractory oven.
    So I guess my questions are about cost, weight and durability?
    We plan on catering, farmers markets and any other side road show!!
Working...
