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!

  • Two Meals in One Day?

    I will be making pizza for a set of friends at lunch time, and then again for family and friends for dinner. I don't want to keep the fire stoked for the 5 hours between. Should I just let it go, without the door on, or should I put the door on, which will extinguish the flames, but retain the heat?

    I've never done it but I would put some fuel on the existing coals and "lean" the door to block most of the air. It should keep things going until you need to fire it up. Pizza twice a day - you are a lucky guy!

      Put the door on and just wait until you are about 30 minutes to cooking the second batch and fire it up again, it will not take long and you will have saved a bunch of heat.

        According to several previous posts describing the "WHOOSH" that occurs when removing said door from a resting fire, cover your eyebrows!

          Good advice John, after 30 minutes with a closed door there is little chance the the fire will flair up in a woosh. this generaly happens when the fire is still quite active.

          but just to be safe stand to the side for a minute or so to guarantee any flair up has been averted

            It's funny how movies create an awareness of something .....potentially allowing you to avoid an experience.... or maybe the challenge to pursue it
