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!

  • Attempt at a Fireplace Pictures

    Dont even know if this belongs here or not but I'll post it. I decided we needed a fireplace out on the patio to compliment the pool, kitchen etc so I came up with this. I knew nothing about masonary work and the fact it's pretty hard work but came up with this. No plans, only an idea in my head andbuilt it "fly by wire".


    The idea.....

    I won't go so far as to say you did it correctly, but I will say that it will probably work just fine for what you are using it for.

    Simple, free fireplace plans:

    And your outdoor area is very nice.

        Thank you for not beating me up!

        You are very much correct on that. I had no idea of what I was doing and if done over again would do some things differently. I can say it was a laborous undertaking for mw ,myself and I. With that said, surprisingly it drafts very well whether is dead still or windy. Really dont use for a heat source more for the ambiance.

          Tex,
          The fire place and the pool area are just down right beautiful . There must be a little Texican left in me. (I was born in Tejas) I love the "bonnie blue star" theme and what it represents. I'm not a Cowboy fan though .
