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!

  • Top Down Fire Video

    Hey all,

    I tried the top-down fire method this weekend in my larger oven and it worked nicely, so today I shot a video of the top-down fire in my Primavera oven. This works so well -- thanks everyone who jumped in and recommended this. I really appreciate it.

    I have a new theory on the videos that we are shooting. It's a new form of self-help. I am going to keep making video, and I'm going to learn a huge amount from everyone who has advice and will help me improve. It's an unusual way of using YouTube -- "help, what am I doing wrong" :-), but it might be effective.

    You can find the video on FB.com and the YouTube version will be up shortly.

    Thanks again -- oh, and I still need to try dryer lint.

        my Dad always taught me to arrange the kindling so that plenty of kindling coals drop into the fire centre, rather than let them spread out(initially).....this goes one better......will try it myself - Thanks James

            Does this seem to heat the oven quicker than what I would consider the bottom up version? The bottom up version being kindling on the bottom followed by progressively larger pieces.

                Drogers,

                I have started making all my fires this way -- in the fireplace and camping with the kids. The fire really does fall in and catch ever larger pieces of wood on the way down. Thumbs up on this one.

                  I tired this yesterday for the first time - brilliant. You can set the fire up and just leave it for a good half hour or so before it needs any attention.
