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!

  • Homemade Grill

    I had this grill built to my specs here in Mesa, AZ. You can see my oven in the background. I use the expended coals to heat up the grill for veggies and Mex cooked chicken, etc.

    The grill was made from a full sheet of (4x8) 3/16 steel. So their was nothing left over, the plans called for the grill to be 4x4 with 1ft sides. The grill top slides and is 2ft x 4ft with steel mesh.

    The legs have an internal piece that can extend and raise the grill up another foot just to make it comfortable.

    When in the down position, it also serves as a great fire pit.


    what you see in the grill is a piece of mesquite for a piece of wild caught Alaskan salmon we got as a gift. The firebrick is used to keep the coals in one place and focus the heat for a great sear. The salmon was about 1 1/2 inches thick so it had to cook for about 9 min total time. It was great. In fact my hands still smell of the mesquite smoke as I am typing this.

    I have better images at a larger size of the grill I posted earlier - I am learning how to post a little better. ml

          Thanks Navy Intel. I was looking for a supplier closer to home than Davis Salvage.
