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!

  • Scotch Ovens

    I came across this post the other day and wanted to share with the Fourno community this rare find.

    I contacted the owner and politely asked him if he wouldn't mind taking some photo's. He graciously did and posted these wonderful photo's.
    These ovens, as you all know are rare. And any info of them even more so.
    I think that he should start a blog on it here on FB.
    Anyways.... Thanks Neville from Down Under for this.

    Polenta, when I click on that link I get taken to a site that requires joining (login etc.).

    Is there another way to view the photos? as a guest to the site, perhaps?

    Bests,
    Wiley

      Sorry Wiley... I see that now. I am a member of that forum so I took it for granted all can see the post.
      No fear, i've asked him if he wouldn't mind to post here. More exposure.

        Re: Scotch Ovens

        Hi I am the proud owner of a Scotch oven here in Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield West Yorkshire in the UK. I am currently restoring it to full use. So far I have had a new chimney built and had the original damper re-installed. Latest development is the restoring of the original oven door with bolts being welded to provide the 'pins' for the hinges. I discovered that the flue had been capped with mortar when it had been decommissioned, this made for a very smoky room. Now the mortar has been removed the draw is brilliant and the damper really makes a difference. I have some photographs of progress but how do I post them through this forum? artibaker

          Hi Polenta, just joined the forum as you'll see from my posting when it's released by the Moderator. Tell me more about how rare the Scotch ovens are as it's all new to me as an owner currently restoring my oven, artibaker

            Re: Scotch Ovens

            Hi
            Yes I too would like to watch your progress. The little country town I spent a few years in in country Australia had side fired scottish oven that was in use right into the 80s. My grandfather use to make the bread and cake tins and other flatware for the oven and my aunt delivered bread so there was always a fresh loaf in my nans house. Sadly the oven was pulled down in the 90s a finally falling victim of the big commercial bakeries and modern transport. I suspect it only lasted as long as it did due to the floods of the 70s as they distrubed the big trucks but my aunt always seemed to get through and that little bakery supplied bread to the sorounding towns even with the flour having to be flown in.
            What are you plans for the oven...Thats a big mass of brick and sand to get and keep at temp I'm glad your cutting the wood
