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!

  • my fire door

    The oven is 95 percent done and I'm playing with some door ideas.
    Here is a simple 'fire' door I made out of thin aluminum. I wanted
    to keep heat in, but still allow adequate breathing. It also helps direct the smoke into the flue.

    The slat on the bottom is tall and wide enough to slide a pizza
    in. When the fire is going, you can actually see the fire breath in
    from the bottom.

    I have a tapered entry and the door just leans against the entry way.

    I'm also working on a 'insulated' door that is a double wall steel door stuffed with insulation, insulated handles and a thermometer. This will be my overnight heat retaining door.

    Thanks again for everyone advice. I have learned a great deal from these

    This is an interesting door.

    Are you happy with the way it performs?

    What benefits do you get from this door? Is it allowing the oven to maintain higher heat?
