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!

  • mobile oven question

    A few times in France, I have seen mobile pizza oven trucks, selling pizza in campsites and villages, moving from place to place, Do you think they light the fire back at base and drive the trucks with the fire burning or what? Thank's

    I would doubt they travel with a lit fire, probably mostly gas heated until they get to the campsites.

      Is it easy to install a gas burner into a wood oven which will also burn wood?

        We discourage discussion of gas burners in home-built ovens. They are potentially unsafe.

          My guess is they travel with the fire burning...think simple here, if it were you would you have a close fitting door that contains the fire securely or have an additional elaborate propane system just for going between sites?

            If you had a close fitting door, wouldn't the fire go out for lack of oxygen?

              Not with an air vent in the right place...you could have air and have it positioned to keep the fire contained, IMO.

                The gas burner needs to be accompanied with a flame failure device.
