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!

  • Oven Orientation

    Hi Yall,

    I've chosen the spot for our oven in our backyard and I'm trying to decide on which direction the front of the oven should face. Am I correct to believe that the wind should not head straight into the face of the oven and rather blow across its mouth from either side?

    Eager To Dig,

    Henry

    Re: Oven Orientation

    Welcome to the forum. I hope you find the info you desire. There is more than plenty here. As far as the wind goes it would be preferred from what I have read to have prevailing wind coming from behind. If that isnt possible then from the side would be acceptable. You definitely do not want it blowing direct into the door.
    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste
    like chicken...

      Hahahaha! Good one! If you are from Toronto, you know what the North wind in the winter is all about. This applies only to OUTSIDE ovens.

      Indoors, conventional wisdoms recommends that all ovens face WEST.

        Re: Oven Orientation

        Thanks Kindly Folks! Where I am situated (just East of Toronto), the wind blows mainly from the South West and as you mentioned PP, from the North for the winter months. I think I will therefore have the mouth facing East.

        Thanks Again.
