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!

  • dusty O.D. kitchen progress

    The weather has been warm and I've returned to the back yard to finish my outdoor kitchen. The oven enclosure will be made of used bricks and the counters of old pool table slate - stong but VERY heavy. I have started the enclosure, but want to repair my two big cracks before I go any further. I plan to cut into the cracks with a diamond blade on my angle grinder from the inside and outside. On the inside I plan to fill the cut groves with mortar squeezed out of my grout bag. I will fill the outside ones with furnace caulk and fire-brick wedges. I will let you all know how it works out.

    Took some pictures of my sons welding the supports for my counters. Then of the counters on either side of the oven.

    The last pic is of my enclosure walls being narrowed to make room for adaquate insulation. This was what Uno suggested I do back before I even started this project - I miss that guy.

    Uno, you still out there?
