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!

  • Smoke in Primavera Oven

    Ok so very new here and brand new owner of a Primavera oven. I'm in the process of curing the oven and I built a fire for the first time. I noticed a considerable amount of smoke when i moved the fire to the right. Is that normal?

    Hey coolpizza,

    Not to worry. We use grease as part of the molding process, and sometimes a little bit of it doesn't come off with the cleaner. It will burn right off and you won't see it again.

    Have fun!

      I noticed a lot of smoke in my Primavera 70 while I cure, also. It has pretty well stained the front edge and I also notices a strange wet, greasy sort of leakage on the left side edge of the entrance. I imagine this is what you mean?

      Also, as I look at the hole to the vent, it seems smaller than I would expect, as if a lot of casting material was sort of left behind. Should that be perhaps carefully chipped out?
