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!

  • Reclaimed Barn Beam Kitchen

    I've already built the 36" oven which is working great and I've poured a 16 wide by 20' long pad. I also have lots of good barn beams and field stone to work with (from the collapsed barn) Plus water, drainage, and electrical.

    I've never build a timber frame, never built a field stone wall but have built lots of other stuff

    Basing the structure off of this frame
    16' x 20' pine timber frame for sale!

    Planning galvanized "U" brackets lag bolted to the pad to hold frame in place.
    Having the upper truss' milled so they will be straight/square.
    Also having roof cross pcs and kneebrace 4x4's milled.

    To the left of the oven I've got two drainage pipes that feed into a 3" coiled drain tile underground, plus water, and electricity in pipes

    Have lots and lots of good wall field stone and one restored "milk house" on the property constructed from field stone so was trying to keep the look consistent.

    Was considering a 4' field stone wall on the back and also completing the oven enclosure with field stone or fake field stone.

    Roof will be red steel to match the garage.

    Also have 3"x14" sil plates from the barn that I was going to turn into a bar and already have a harvest table constructed from old barn floor boards (Pic)

    Considering fabricating stainless steel prep tables with adjustable shelving/top

    Ideas/Feedback/tips???

    Stainless steel can be expensive, we found granite work tops much more readily available and cheaper than stainless - I own my own engineering company!

    Also granite is better for rolling out pizza dough...

    Otherwise sounds good.
    Where can I find logs? I need more!
    Finishing the WFO will come after the barn is completed http://flinthousebarn.co.uk/

      I like the look. Timber frame is not difficult once you get past the heavy lifting. The one thing I would do is put a moisture barrier between your pine and your concrete.

      Looks like fun!
