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!

              Hi John; I was beginning to think no one in Alabama had found this site. Lots of great info, ideas and support all in one place. I'm about half way between your location and Archena. I'm just outside Selma, dead center of the state. I look forward to seeing your project come together. Nicky

                  Hey, you're doing really good... I only noticed that useful little function after I'd finished the oven.

                  A friend of mine once spent a year in Selma. Small world, huh?

                    Well after much delay ...to wet... to hot ...to lazy...to drunk... I have poured the foundation of my 36" oven! 30 80# bags of Quickcrete a 40$ rental on a mixer and a a soreness in my neck that is still here after a week and I now have what appears to be the world's Smallest Patio in my back yard. My poor wife bless her heart had to help me scree and it started raining as soon as i had done a little troweling. Luckily I got a tapr over it so monday I'll Knock off the Form.

                    Soon with the Pics

                          Hey man - I'm right there with ya!!! I am in Central Alabama and today alone I have been reading threads since 6 am. (Now 11) Read all of RClake Thread and toddj stuff. I got stuck on the base setup because I was going to do a barrel overn. Glad I read the FB site. I am now doing a Pompeii dome. More inline with what I want to do with the oven....her are some picks so far. I guess I'll start me a thread. Great to see another Alabama person doing a build. Doesn't it seem we wait til its hot as blazes to do these out door projects .

                          I poured the pad in January and did the Kneewall and base in June..ish. Now I will do the base. We will finish all this out then build a deck off the side that over looks the barn and pasture in the background...someday

                          We will finish the roof over the oven after the stack is above the roof line.
