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!

          Very nice, love the colour of of all that stone!

          ... stupid question: Where's the oven? I mean not that you have to have one or anything. I'm just looking at the pictures going: hmm, somethings different here..

                Re: More from Texas - Project Complete!!

                Very, very nice jobs on the bbq island and the pergola. I am in the middle of a similar project here in Rockwall as well. Just completed the steel frame and ready to proceed with hardibacker. Plan to use tile countertop and faux stone siding. SS doors.

                Any lessons learned to offer? I have already found that this takes much more time and trips to HD/Lowes than I imagined

                Have not started on pergola yet. That is next project. Did you design it yourself - if so, what was your source of design info on column and beam loading? Also, did you find a good source of cedar or redwood in the local area? Noticed that your pergola does not cover the bbq island. Is there a safety/code reason for that?

                Thanks much and once again - great job.

                    Richards;
                    Thanks!
                    Yes I can't tell you how many times I went back to HD...
                    For the pergola I just went off a few designs I saw on line, but I ended up just creating my own design on my computer and cutting each beam, time consuming but worth it. I ordered all the cedar wood from Home Depot and since it's longer than what they keep in stock it took about a week to get in, so make sure you have your design exactly what you want.

                    The grill area did take longer than thought but well worth it. We spend almost all our time outside cooking-out and enjoying it.
                    I did not cover that part because I didnot want to feel closed in and wanted more room for seating under the pergola area. However I have seen some that are under pergola's and roof's and they are very nice.

                    Anymore questions feel free to ask!
                    Post some pictures of your build as you progress.

                      We should run a thread about how many trips,,, Home Depot, Brickyard, Lowes,, etc etc...

                      I know I made at least 4 trips to lowes just for cement as my truck could only hold 12 bags at a time,,,

                        only 4? Seriously, there are times when I have been four times in ONE DAY.
                        I despise the home center because they almost never have what I want when I want it (among other reasons) but back when I was knee deep in my housebuilding project, going to HD, et.al. was the highlight of my day just because it got me a little climate control and mud free-ness. Plus they have ok bathrooms, which when you're on a jobsite 16+ hours a day for 9 or 10 months without plumbing or a toilet, is SO exciting.

                          yes splat,,,
                          That was only one day for pouring the foundation,, Im sure there was a lot more than that....

                          If I had to guess, I bet my total oven build would be over 100 trips at least to lowe's HD brick supply etc....

                          cheers
