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!

  • Firepit and Pizza Oven

    Hello all.

    I am just beginning to plan out the oven I would like to build in July of this year. I haven't had a chance to dig through the archives too thoroughly yet but would be grateful for any pointers in the right direction.

    I'd like to build a fairly simple bread/pizza oven in my yard. But I would like to also have a mostly-enclosed firepit underneath it. Not sure how complicated this is. I've been planning to do as much of the project as I can during two weeks of vacation in July. Will probably have a friend pour a foundation but plan to do the rest myself.

    I'd like to be able to do some rudimentary spit-roasting too but not sure that needs to really be seriously incorporated into the design as it would likely make things that much more complicated.

    Any and all tips (esp. very general feedback ala - does this sound feasible) are appreciated. Will be checking back periodically and reading through the archives.

    Thanks!

      Welcome ee

      The idea of having a firepit under the oven is something I have not seen before so am eager to see how you progress.

      I too built an oven + attached open Fire pit for spit roasting and works a treat!! I highly recomend the open pit for spit cooking.

      You can follow my link below for ideas if you like

      Enjoy

      The difference between a successful person and others is not the lack of strength, nor the lack of knowledge… but rather, the lack of will power.
