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!

    We love wood oven cooked pizza, so in looking for a project I came up with the idea of building an outdoor oven.

    That has brought me here and hopefully I can get some good ideas and get my oven underway, so im sure you will hear more from me soon

    Welcome to the forum Tim,

    Glad to have you joining in.

    Lots of good planning information here, so keep reading and ask questions when you get stumped.

    Adding a WFO to your list of available kitchen appliances is a great project. I really enjoyed the building of the oven, and it has been a real hoot learning to use the oven to cook great food.

    Most anyone can build one of these things, just get started!

    Good luck with your project,

      If you haven't done anything like this before, be assured you are going to come away with a whole bunch of new skills.

        Welcome aboard Tim,
        You have found the right place for do-it-youself WFO, with lots of help. I'll be looking forward to finding good pizza on my next trip to NZ!

          It's about time the otherside of the world started thawing out and thinking about wood fired ovens. We really miss hearing from your end of the ball.

          I've been around this site for a couple years and it seems that the oven build process is streamlined more every year and is now almost fool proof. Read up and you'll have an oven of your own in no time!!
