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!

  • Strada Oven on a Redwood Stand?

    Hello All,

    I am considering the Strada oven from FB for my condo's small back patio. I'd like to build a custom platform for it out of redwood to match a preexisting privacy screen that I built, however I'm worried that the base of he oven might become too hot and create a fire hazard. Can anyone comment on how hot he exterior of this oven gets while cooking? Thanks!

    The real question is: how well and with what do you plan to insulate it? These things can be built inside a house with proper insulation.

      That strada is pretty cool. Why not use a metal stand? Forno Bravo does sell them. Just my 2 cents, but anything around an open fire should be noncombustible. Just imagine this scenario. You burn down your condo complex and during the investigation they ask why you would have a wood fired oven with a open fire on a wooden stand... Because it was cheaper? Because it looked cooler? That's a lot of explaining IMHO.
