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!

    Re: metal frame with wheels

    I've got one that I roll on and off my trailer.(p.2 i think, on finished oven pics) It has 4 wheels, but I want to add another two to spread out the load. My trailer is the back of a ute and the floor is not all that strong. My oven weighs 160Kgs and the bouncing creates too much weight on the four points of contact. 6 wheels should do it. Still have not put shocks on the trailer.

      If you poke around the photos and some old threads, you'll see a number of portable ovens and some discussion on the best way to design them.

      Here's the photo David mentioned of his oven:

            6 wheels on your pizza trailer? I bet that is going to turn a bit hard...

              No it doesn't turn. Just rolls on and off. It works really well. I was worried about handling the weight, but I can handle it on my own quite easily. In fact it works better with fixed wheels, I think I would have trouble if I'd used turning wheels. I adjust the height and slope with the trailers jockey wheel.

                Oh - I'm being dense.

                The oven dolly will have 6 wheels, not the UTE trailer. I get it now.

                Duh... I feel a bit silly.
