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!

  • Winter Prep

    I have a Primavera 70 oven that will be going thru its first Iowa winter. What do I need to do to protect it? How can I cover/winterize it so that I can still get to it and cook when the weather is cooperating?

    Thanks for the help!!!

    I would build a steep roofed shed or an A frame over it .

      Mark - I have a dome and do nothing for the winter. If I know we are going to get horizontal rain I may put a piece of tile over the vent, but that is just to keep the soot from mucking up the hearth entry.

          No - I think he gets snow, rain, and freezing temps. May get a little more than us but cold is cold.

            After your post I looked up the preciptation averages for both of your areas, and you are right. But, actually (with my origional post) I was thinking about what would keep the oven dry and the cook . Down here, we just think of keeping dry. In the few months of winter that we have we just put on long sleeves .

              Where we live is a temperate climate, I had a good friend visit from tropical Cairns some years ago, while he was here visiting he had to buy his first pair of long pants ever...

                If he was from Cairns it would not be uncommon if his only footwear was thongs! (read flip flops)

                If he called Cairns home then his first trip to Melbourne would have been a treat. My best memory of my first visit to Melbourne was the Vic Markets. Never saw a tub of sheep eyes until then. An amazing place. It was the equal of any other food markets I have seen anywhere.

                No doubt you sent him home with an umbrella, sun hat, blizzard jacket and a resolve to never live south of the Tropic of Capricorn.
