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!

  • Oven door explodes

    My contractor provided an oven door made out of some flame and heat resistant material.

    Well, after burning wood to get the inside oven walls and celings piping hot (about 7000F), the door he made to cover the opening of the oven literally exploded.

    The contractor had made the door out of a fire-resistent material", facingthe fire, and then just a wood face toward the outside.

    The kit had originally called for a cast iron door.

    Is this just bad design, or a bad contractor?

    G'day
    There a lot of information in this forum note the search function on the main page. With you exploding door.... Sounds like your contractor is not an oven builder. Time for you to do dome investigating there's a thread called show us your door in the tips section from memory.
    You previous thread on pizza making .... There is more than one section devoted to all types of cooking time to check them out .
    Just for information pizza gets cooked with flame in the oven with a 90 sec pizza requiring up to three turns to prevent burning. Bread usually cooked with an insulated door, no fire, on the heat retained in the oven.
    Hope this helps in part

      You're saying got the inside of your oven to 7000f??? What are you using for fuel.....Oxyacetylene or magnesium? No way was your oven that hot.

        A Dodge hemi dragster engine fuelled with nitro methane, reportedly gets temps around 7000F. That would be fun to try in your WFO, but it might blow up more than the door.
