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!

  • ISO high temp lights

    I'm looking at adding some kind of lighting to the interior of my
    oven. I will need something that can take serious heat (1000F if it's
    in the dome/walls, 500F if I put them in the throat of the oven, 750F
    if I put it in the chimney vent).

    Any ideas?

    The normal way to illuminate the inside of a wood-fired oven is to use a light tube. When building the oven one builds in one or better two a 100mm diameter stainless steel tubes about 100 150 mm above floor level. The tubes need to be set so the tube end inside of the oven is slightly higher than the end outside of the oven (this is to stop smoke entering the tube) and the tube is long enough to pass through the insulation and to the outside of the oven facade. Make a bracket that will hold a light bulb holder and bulb and can move up and down the tube (for safety use a transformer say 12 24 volt and 50 watt bulb(s). Wire with heat resistant flex and position the bulb holder within the tube, as far back from the inside of the oven as possible, but in a position to give the best light within the oven. The best place for round oven would be to each side of the oven door thus creating a cross light within the oven. A cap will need to be made to close off the tube on the outside of the oven facade.
