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!

  • Portable pizza oven?

    I'm looking for advice on building a pizza oven on a trailer base to make it portable. The idea would be to travel to festivals, private parties, etc to bake and sell pizzas. Does anyone have any experience or advice in this area? TIA..

    Hi there,
    You should check out http://www.thefirewithin.biz/Home.html
    They manufacture cart ovens.

    They also sell a book in the fornobravo store with everything you should need to know.

      Thanks Mitch- I had actually found them after posting the query, and they look like the answer to all my questions!
      It's exciting to find that my idea is actually feasible and working well enough to support their business and construction of ovens for others! Makes me think I might be on the right track...

        I use my little portable oven to cater for up to 30 people. Photos somewhere in photo gallery - finished photos. It's small enough to roll on and off the trailer by myself.

          David- it looks really neat. What did you use for the platform, and how much does the entire oven weigh? Which model are you using? Is this restricted to catering or do you also use it on the steel stand when not on the truck bed? I love the flames!

            I agree with Mitch, get with Joseph from thefirewithin
            I got an oven from him and he is a great resource

              The oven is built on a hebel (aerated reinforced concrete) base. I tried to make the oven as light as I could, it weighs 160 kg but still performs well. I have a permanent and heavier one of the same size for home use and just roll the portable on and off the trailer for catering or hire as I need it, leaving the trailer free for other important jobs like taking stuff to the tip.
