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!

  • Fakin' It

    I saw something on Pinterest that I'm planning to try - eventually. They took 2 - 8 (depending on size) unglazed terra cotta (ceramic?) floor tiles and put one (or four) on the top rack and one (or four) on the bottom of a regular oven. Cranked it to 500F and heated for 45 minutes before using the bottom on as a pizza stone. Said it did really well.

    Anyone try this or something similar?

    I have heard of people using firebrick with the same method with good results.

      Cool! Thanks - I'll definitely be giving it a try then.

        See; http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f24/...eel-18716.html

        If you have access you might try a 1/4" piece of sheet steel. Industrial metal supply places have remnants from other projects and they're not expensive. Allow at least an inch space on all sides for air flow and more even heating. I sanded the edges till soft, washed the plate in the dishwasher, by itself, scrubbed off the rust and seasoned the plate in the oven with a very light coat of oil to seal....

          I'll keep an eye out. Maybe one of the guys I know who make armor can point me to a supplier.

          Thanks.
