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!

  • Can you please give me views on this oven

    Well - I'm back after a long layoff.

    I'm still very keen to build an oven - but time is something that I just dont get any of - making me think that building a oven is something that while appeals, may well be a pipe dream. (heck it took me 2 months to knock together a garden box for the boss).

    So I was looking at kiwi based options and I saw this kit-set:

    Ovens - Welcome to the website of Hard Yards, manufacturers of Wood Fired Pizza Ovens, Ornamental Outdoor Furniture, and Wood & Gas Fired Braziers - Hard Yards, manufacturers of Wood Fired Pizza Ovens, Outdoor Furniture & Fire Pit Tables

    Could people on here with far more knowledge than me have a look and pass on their thoughts please.

    I would be wanting to use it for pizza's, breads, and ribs - loads of ribs (something I love almost as much as great pizza).

    Thanks in advance.

    Tankard,
    First thing I noticed is there is no insulation. I don't understand this. Perhaps one could use their oven as a shortcut to the place in the FB instructions where one places insulation over the constructed dome PROVIDING ONE INSULATES UNDER THE PROVIDED HEARTH (really really important, that's why the caps :-)

    Second is their lighting instructions... I don't understand the getting the fire going then shutting off the air by putting the door in place. From the pictures of the door there is no provision for air entrance. Their process may work (it's their oven, one would think they would know), just it seems very odd, maybe I'm misreading the instructions.

    Hope this helps,
    Wiley

      Thanks for taking the time to reply Wiley.

      I think I will give this a pass and keep looking for something of a higher quality.
