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 also purchased th Pompeii90 kit and picked it up a couple of weeks ago. have placed the cornet slab and am starting walls tomorrow. will do a mono pour for cells in blocks and hearth at once.
Hello Meggenberger -
Can I ask why you are putting in a bbq along with the oven? That's what we were planning to do, too, and then I was told that you can use a wood-fired oven as a bbq, too. (unless you are planning to bbq something like a whole pig, and it wouldn't fit in the oven...)
Yes, you can bbq in a wfo. I often use my Tuscan grill for meats using left over coals from a pizza cook. But, I don't think I would ever fire up the wfo just to bbq burgers or do light cooking. It is way easier and faster to light some charcoal or wood in a bbq pit to do some brief cooking like burgers, hotdogs, veggies. There is more room to use bbq tools on a grill than inside an oven too, not that it can't be done inside a brick oven though.
I think you have to balance which is best for your needs at the moment. Your idea of a separate bbq is good. If you have both options available then you can make the best use of their individual capabilities.
I agree with Bob. Sometimes you just want to grill and not have to worry about firing up the oven and getting up to temp. I'm also incorporating a wood fired grill along with my oven build. It's just good to have both options.
And Hi meggenberger, welcome to the Forum, and congrats on starting your build! Great plan and layout! Similar to mine as well.
