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 type and size

    Hello, my name is Eric and I am a new user of the forum. My interest in wood fired ovens come from a small Christian summer camp that my wife and I run. Our ministry is called "Good Leaven Ministries" from the verse in Matthew that compares the effect of a little good working its way all around as yeast works its way through a ball of dough. We have wanted to build a bread oven at the camp both for its usefulness and to fall in line with our name. We want the oven to cook bread, pizza, as well as roast meat. The camp is off the grid so we have to make all of our own power and we cook a lot with wood (something we have a lot of). We think it would be neat if the campers could make their own bread, pizza, calzones, etc. and bake it in the oven. If we could cook pizza at lunch in the oven and then roast chicken for dinner in the same oven that would be very helpful to us. We have at most 40 campers and staff to feed at one time. That all said I am not sure if:
    1) a 42 inch oven would be big enough.
    2) a bigger oven would be too much work to build.
    3) a round oven would be the best choice.
    I would like you thoughts.
    Thanks and God Bless
