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 newbie

    Hello all,
    I am new to WFOs and have been on this site for about a month now just reading and doing a lot of research. I have reviewed dbhansen's post and it was extremely helpful in designing my oven. I am finally going to get started building my oven this weekend and hope to have the foundation poured sometime Sunday. Since I live in S. FL, I don't have to dig too deep (not much of a front line). I hope a fire date sometime in January is not too agressive since I will only be able to work on the weekends. I'm sure I will have a lot of questions and am looking forward to speaking with many of you.

    Hello SteveP

    Good job deciding to build an oven! You can't go wrong with that decision.. Every back yard should have a WFO...

    It is great fun building these things, and this forum is a great place to find answers to the questions that will come up. So keep us posted on your progress - and be sure to send pictures!

      Welcome Steve, glad to see another FL oven.....seems we are gaining popularity down here. Feel free to fire away with the questions...glad to hear that you have been researching the forum for the past month (I did exactly the same thing). Your January time frame is doable. My oven took 3 1/2 months from start to finish (all on the weekends - with the most time spent on my mosaic tile finish, about 40 hrs); a less tedious choice of finishes will surely get you in under the wire.

        Welcome to the forum Steve, you have come to the right place! Nice to see another oven starting up. There are several of us that are just starting to build.
