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!

  • Norwegian check-in

    Hi,
    My name is Tore. I live just outside of Oslo in Norway. I am planning an outdoor kitchen in our garden and plan to build a wood fired oven. Given the Norwegian winters I intend to build a solid house for it. I have read the Pompeii ebook and will start drawing my plan shortly.

    Right now I am especially interested in custom design doors. I would love to have one with our family name and year for building the oven.

    Re: Norwegian check-in

    Tore, Here is one way you could do a door: Once you know the size and shape of door to be in your oven have a metal shop cut the correct size door from sheet steel,(we use a water-jet or a plasma cutter) using a cad draw program (We use Sketch-Up downloaded for free on line from Google) you or your sheet metal shop can draw the size and shape of your door with the desired text and font of your name and date, then the water-jet, plasma cutter, or laser cutter will cut out your door front exactly as drawn. Then a insulated back could be added. Another method could be to cut the metal front as a mold to hammer a thinner sheet of copper into for a raised letter effect, again adding insulation etc. to the back. I guess it would be safer to build the oven first as it would be easier to cut the metal to fit the oven than to cut brick to fit the door. This forum is fantastic with so may great ideas. I hope to build an oven within the next year. I do have the brick already though. Good Luck Gene.
