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!

  • Gas burner assembly

    My township is saying I need gas burner for pizza oven unless it is more than 25ft from any combustible material ( in this case my house - 15ft) Anybody add a gas burner or have dealt with crazy building codes - yes you can have a wood burning fireplace in your house surrounded on 5 sides by combustible materials but if you move it outside then it has to be 25ft away from anything else ???

    Added gas burner - pain in the ass. Haven't used it yet. Plan on making bread so maybe I'll use it to tune up oven temperature

        Hello Larry

        Commercial burners come with flame detection devices so that the gas is cut off if the flame goes out. May even have an Oxygen sensor to check the atmosphere.
        Be careful with home brew systems.

          This burner is designed for wood burning pizza ovens - it can be used by itself or not at all ( just wood). Can use natural gas or propane - just have to change gas nozzle. The burner mounts in a metal sleeve which comes up through the floor of the oven. It comes withma metal cap you put on when you are burning wood.To work it you first have to ignite the pilot flame and a thermo couple confirms pilot is indeed on - then dial up the main burner. Manufacturer also makes remote thermometers so you can mount them outside your oven - I used one to register the floor temperature and one to register dome temperature but Celsius. Google Avanzini
