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!

    Depends what you mean by inexpensive, I guess. I *still* plan on finishing my WiFi compatible quad digital thermometer with display (it is working ...), and when I do I plan on seeing if anybody wants to buy it. Until then, these are the 'go to guys' for thermometers.

      Don't know if your still looking but I just got a quote on the IMC Instruments thermometer, which came in at $280, for the version with three inputs, plus $18 each for the K-type thermocouples with 5' wires. You can see their website.

        I bought my k type thermocouple probes from Auber Instruments Inc
        auberins.com, Temperature control solutions for home and industry
        Found the company easy to deal with online with good comms.

        I got a few K type high temperature thermocouples for heat treatment
        Item Number WRNK-191 for just over $18 each - Quality are to ok for the price. They only have spade ends and I bought K Type Thermocouple Mini Connector Plug, Model: TCMALE $3.00 each and works fine.

        I have not installed in my oven yet but I have been using it to monitor my electric oven and works fine.

          Others have had luck using diesel automotive pyrometers gauges and probes used to measure exhaust gasses, there have been several listed near here on Craigslist for around $30-40.
