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!

  • Fire in the oven not the hottest it can be??

    I'm having few issues with the Stefano Ferrara 90 oven that is inside my pizza truck.

    It Seems like it has a ventilation problem, the wood doesnt catch on fire and doesnt create a nice flame. Stefano suggested to increase the length of the flue of 20cm, so now it's probably 4 feet long from the inside of the truck. I know that you have an outside oven so I was wondering if you knew anything about it. If you would ask for a professional opinion who would you ask? I contacted Stefano but he hasn't got back to me. We are in a hurry to fix this matter since more events are coming up soon and it's awful working in those conditions. Even the floor seems not to get hot.
    Anything u might think is appreciated

    Has the oven only recently developed this problem or is it new?
    A new oven still contains water and this needs to be eliminated before it will cook properly.

    Has the oven got wet recently?

    Is your wood dry?

    How long are you firing it for?
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
