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!

  • Finished the dome today

    I finally laid the final brick in the dome today! I've been a little slow the past 2 months due to camping, hunting and overtime at work, but I got it done. I had to redo my arch, I'm not a mason and I didn't trust it so I went back to the basics and laid a lintel and just went with a straight opening. I picked up some flue liner and some INSWOOL-HP 6# (2" X 24" X25' for $65) from a refractory distributor in Pueblo. I have my friend the "Tile Guy" cutting a 4" hole in one of the flue tiles so I can incorporate the Carolina pit BBQ smoke stack. I'm aiming for roast turkey from the oven this Thanksgiving! I'll post pic in a few days (working OT again).

    KC good to hear, i hunt a fair bit in Australia and there is nothing like cooking game meat in the wood ovens. Quails, Rabbit, Goat, Pig, Duck etc.. you name it.

    Looking forward to the pics, we should be finishing my dads dome today.
    Regards

      Elk, Deer, Antelope this year. Starting to see the light (or fire) at the end of the tunnel. Don't know how much longer the weather will hold out. We got snow on Pikes Peak yesterday.

      Go Rockies!

            Congrats on completing the dome. I don't see any light at the end of tunnel yet on my work. You've got to be licking your chops about now thinking about all the great meals you're going to make.
