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!

  • Taking the stone right off our land

    We decided to get the stone from our farm and it looks great
    and was one less thing to purchase
    We laid the stone for our outdoor kitchen but when it came to the oven we hired a professional

    Same here. I feel that stone from the area adds a kind of authenticity to the oven

      We feel the same way. But it took a while to pick up the rock
      We cooked our first Bison roast this weekend along with a peach cobbler and a few loves of bread. Love the Oven
      We talked about building a oven for at least two years. Wish we had done it sooner

        My problem is not availability - there are lots, but to get the right ones does take time - you are right!

        The Bison sounds nice. What is the taste like - beefish or more towards buck?

            Thanks Lisha,
            In the eyes of many game meat sadly remains to be used only in dried format which we call Biltong and which I am told is Jerky in US terms (Yet a Boston friend of mine loves biltong & hates Jerky, so there must be some difference :-)). Although venison is getting slow but sure recognition here as a more healthy alternative, some people complain that it is a tad on the dry side. One of my theories and dreams for my oven is that with the WFO's cooking characteristics, this should not be a problem :-)

              I have never had biltong but we love venison and bison jerky.Venison is our main meat in the freezer even our breakfast sausage. We have a local butcher that prepares our venison and he adds a littile beef fat to ground venison and little pork fat to the breakfast sausage this really helps with the moisture content altought it still can dry out if over cooked . Last fall we did our on jerky,sauasge links and hot dogs. My oldest son brought home elk this year and it was really good. The past three years we have enjoyed wild turkey for thanksgiving. and yes my family loves to hunt and eat there harvest.
              I am just learning to cook in our oven and have not tried the venison yet. but will soon
              Have a wonderful day

                I have used some of my venison/pork (80/20) breakfast sausage on pizza and it was very good. I also used some buffalo Italian sausage on a couple. Both were excellent.

                    I will give both of them a try.
                    Have you cooked venison chilli or stew in your oven?
                    It would be great to get a thread on wild game recipes cooked in the oven
                    I was thinking of cooking a Buffalo Brisket and doing Ruben pizza .

                      No stews or chili yet, that will have to wait for 3 or 4 months until the temperature drops.
