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!

  • New Oven Enthusiast In Arizona

    Well hello to you all. I joined this forum in hopes of meeting new people that I can learn from. I spent a year building up my first wood fired oven and have plans to build an entire wood fired outdoor kitchen. Since I had gotten quite a bit of information and inspiration from the Pompeii Oven Plans I thought it only right to share my experiences in return.

    Ok so a quick note about me. I really enjoy cooking of all sorts but, wood fire cooking is my favorite. So far in my first oven I've cooked breads, casseroles, beef and pork roasts, chickens, turkey, vegetables and of course homemade pizza. I've even pulled coals out onto the hearth to roast chilies, onions and garlic.

    I was a firefighter / EMT but, I was injured and permanently disabled. So my plans of having my oven and outdoor kitchen built seemed to go down hill fast. So I started researching and found some clay oven options. So I applied the information I researched and began planning my first oven. Then my kids and I began collecting materials and built our first oven. I've been detailing the building processes ups and downs on my blog earthkitchenproject.blogspot.com.

    I'm very interested in other peoples experiences with their ovens and wood fire cooking. I know there's still a lot out there for me to learn and try.

    I invite anyone to check out my outdoor kitchen project that was inspired by the Pompeii Oven plans at Earth Kitchen Project. Keep on cooking with wood!

    G'day desert bloke! Good to see someone else coming into the fold. Love your signature about 'sitting around the fire'.

    Looking at your blog, I can understand your username. I live in a quite wet & cold part of Australia, but love it nonetheless!

    Cheers,

    Russell.
