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!

  • Newbie from Australia

    Gday from Brisbane, Australia.

    Newbie when it comes to WFO's, trying to read and learn a lot fast as i'm underway with an outdoor kitchen that will feature a wood fired grill (Argentinean style parrilla) and a mini-oven above the fire - still trying to work out how i'll do that though.

    Sorry im not a genuine pizza dome builder but hope i'll be accepted anyway!

    Have posted some question threads in Australia and Other oven types forums, hope to get some feedback.

    Cheers.

    Re: Newbie from Australia

    If I understand your design correctly then your oven will not be insulated so will lose heat rapidly unless fire is maintained. I think it will work ok for baking and roasting, but doubt you'd get enough heat in the top to cook pizzas well. You may end up with a floor that's hot enough, but the top not so.can you post a drawing?
    Yor bricks are going to take around and hour to soak with heat, more for high temp cooking.(over300C)
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      Welcome aboard Harro ,
      you've come to the best forum to answer all of your questions. Please don't just build your outdoor kitchen oven without proper insulation as it will be seriously restricted in what you can do and for how long you can use it let alone the increase heating costs in fuel.
      Enjoy.
