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!

  • another Michigan build?

    Hi All,

    I’m a guy with a WFO oven in a foreign land that I get to play with it in the winter sun.......
    SpringJim is my aka for when I’m away from my oven.
    Otherwise I’ve been called all sorts of things…..

    I want to build a semi-portable pizza oven which is proving to be a fun challenge.....it's currently bouncing around those active brain cells.

    Oh, and I also love red wine, big jugs and paella……;-)

    SJ

    ....hope to enjoy the dejavu ride as much as the first.....

    Jim, nice to see you are still with us...even if under an assumed name.
    Although not much of a wine drinker...I do appreciate the jugs and paella.

      How was the flight? :-)

      I've never thought of having two personalities -- are you different in different places??

      Welcome back -- which one do you call back, or home? Everyone said welcome back to Carrie when we got "back" to California, and she said "it's not back for me." :-)

          SpringJim,
          I'd buy a prefab one that you see along the roads in those foreign lands and plop it on a trailer. Get some good good shocks on that trailer though.

            Its nice to see that as some people leave the forum, new members join it and so take their place...

            As a welcome, SpringJim, let me post a photo for you here. I took it a while ago, for some reason or other which currently doesn't spring to mind. But I just have this feeling that you might like it...

                James, was that spring of two posts for? the two personalities?

                GB gave me the idea with his post:

I think I'm done posting till I have the pizzaiolo skills with the oven to claim the name implied with the title. Ciao a tutti! Boun appetito! Buona fortuna! (especially Hendo)_

                I just copied the old man with the baby and the bun:

                but it even seemed to spring over his head....


                So maybe Xabia sleeps till we get back to Spain, or I get the Michigan oven going.....or....who knows what the future at the FB Forum brings?

                Xcept more posts!

                    Ooooooh, I love big knockers! Thanks for sharing Frances!

                    SpringJ - I'm not quite that dense - close, but not quite. I saw it immediately. You must have missed my reply (XJ's check out - I sure will miss him), which was what you wrote after my goodbye post - "George checked out.....I sure will miss him". You were probably jet lagged.

                    Six sudden posts from a newbie named SJ, located in Spring Lake (Mapquest had no problem finding one in Michigan) was impossible to miss. I was just taunting you a bit.

                    Now -we want pics of that build dammit! Get going! No rest for the weary.

                        Frances, knockers are much better in matched pairs

                            Have you ever wondered why "knockers" should refer to part of the female anatomy?

                            When you use the word as a verb (as in knock up, down or even back) its more likely describing a male pastime. And when you think of what a door knocker actually does... how does it become female?

                            Weird thing language.

                              Something about knocking you in the head, I think. You crack me up Frances!
