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!

  • Oven curing, alternative methods

    Well, after some work, got my new primavera 70 in place on its stand and ready for curing. Many have made reference to curing using other methods like a gas burner of sort....at least for the initial stages where a low temp long fire is required. For scheduling reasons, this is something I'd like to pursue as its difficult for me to tend to a day long low temp fire.

    Can someone share the details on what they used specifically to accomplish this, and how it was done? Very much appreciated!

      Maybe I'm missing it, but in that section it speaks to the traditional method of progressive wood fires, nothing about the reference I've seen by several posters to using a gas burner or something similar to maintain a constant lower temp......

          If you need something that can be unattended, a gas burner may not be appropriate.

          A small electric box heater with a thermostat may be a better bet.
