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!

    Why not smoke in the oven?

      You could, I guess, but for both hot and cool smoking you want a specific design that would not work in the oven. I have seen pictures here of both on the same base, so it has been done. Just make sure they do not share a common wall and insulate between them.

        above is correct. for brisket i dont think smoking in the oven would work. i am trying to design an offset smoker set in brick on one side, with the pizza oven on top a counter surface, but on the other side. any ideas?

          Sound like you are on the right track keeping the units separate, its really going to come down to the space available and your preference for placement. Any chance of some type of sketch of the area? We have had some kick ass designs on the forum, if you give these guys some specifics to work with I am sure that you can get some expert guidance.
