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!

  • Hello, I'm back!

    Hello again all,

    I am back, because I am finally in the process (almost) of starting my build. It's been a long time, relatively speaking, for a bunch of reasons. Got busy at work, work has killed basically all internet connectivity to anything (including Forno Bravo), etc, ....

    I decided to have my outdoor kitchen slab poured, as opposed to doing the digging, rebar, etc. myself, and to get started I had to move about 1.5 tons of thin flagstone that I have for walkways about 6 feet, just to get it out of the way. That I did yesterday. This week and next I will get concrete contractors out to estimate the L-shaped thing with the strange little octogan sticking out of the corner, so I can get the basic slab poured.

    I have no clue what is going on with everybody right now, and I really miss following all the builds.

    I hope to be able to spend a little bit more time reading everybody elses stuff, as well as posting my own progress. It's about time I got that octagonal concrete block construction out of my driveway and on a slab where I can build an oven on it!

    Wahoooo! Travis is back!

    Yup, you got a lot to catch up on. And having a contractor pour your foundation for what sounds like a good size outdoor kitchen area is a good idea. It will get you to the fun stuff of the oven build quicker.

    You would be surprised at the people who started & finished their ovens in the last few months. You would also be surprised at those (me) slow pokes who go 2-3 weeks between oven rings and cannot seem to close up their domes.

    Nice to have you back, Dino
