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!

  • Hej there from Sunny Colorado

    Hej there.

    I've been cruising the website trying to plan my build and this is my 1st post. I'm slightly obsessive and this is my latest/greatest obsession (prior one was a MAME arcade I built). I'm in Planning stages, talking to city, and hoping to work on building permit/HOA approval plan this weekend. I'm leaning towards a 42" oven and plan to build it next to my stamped concrete patio. I have a 25' setback from my fenceline that prohibits my putting it any further back in my property. I look forward to being able to post pictures of my progress as I move forward.

    Thank you to all of you who have gone before me as I expect to be able to benefit (poach) from your experience!

    Welcome, from my perspective the closer to your real kitchen the better. My .02.

    Ask questions before you commit, and great luck with your build.

        Re: Hej there from Sunny Colorado

        Welcome Zuk - Planning is key and it really helps if you know exactly what you want to end up with before you start. Changing the desired outcome mid build is somewhat fraught and likely to mean undoing what sweat has been invested in.

        If obsessions are your thing (I too am somewhat inclined) these ovens are a good subject. Plenty to get your teeth into and with due care and attention to detail anyone with a reasonable level of skill should be able to create a very functional oven. I am sure that you will find plenty of experienced builders willing to share here.

        Good luck with your build. One other thing, Chip is right about the proximity to the real kitchen.
        Cheers ......... Steve

          Zuk,

          I good composite resource thread is go to the Newbie Section and look for Lburou's thread called Forno Bravo treasure archives. It links a lot of well documented builds.
          I will also chime in to build the oven close to the house kitchen.
