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!

    Would anyone be interested in FB trying to convert the Pompeii Oven eBook to the Amazon Kindle format?

    There's a fun image. A cute little white Kindle all covered with mortar.

    What do you think? Would anybody be interested?

    Nope! I love my books where I can see them on the shelf. I can loan them to friends, hold them in my hands and feel substance. I hate cell phones, Ipods, and similar technologies, but put up with the unavoidable required hardware necessary to function in the world today.

        James - here is an option I've just started to see. It's pretty cool on the way you turn the pages and the quick links to sections. One click to zoom in and out - works well for old eyes. I personally wouldn't spend the $400 for a Kindle.

        This link is to one of the trade rags I receive that uses it.

          I have to admit that I am thinking of the Kindle more as distribution channel (marketing strategy) than as a practical way of delivering the plans to a builder. Hence my joke about a mortar covered Kindle on the work site. :-) Can you use one with work gloves on? Hah, hah.

          Do you think a Kindle owner would be looking around for cool Kindle stuff, and find the Pompeii Oven eBook?

            Geeeeeeeeeez, do I feel old and out of touch (I'm only 45). I had NO clue what this was about into I clicked on the link. I'm not surprised, just never seen or heard or these.
            I must agree with George (again) and biondoli - give me my reading materials in paper form.
            George, I think we must have the same daddy....I would not own a cell phone if my job didn't require it, ipod - never. PDA/smart phone - what a nuisance.....text messaging should be punishable by death (not really, but I do despise it)

              RT...I hate cell phones, have never texted and never used a pager

              ....but the IPOD is great.....load a few thousand of your favorite songs, hit shuffle and it will play for a month!

              No more vinly, 8track, cassetts, discs, disc cases....just something the size of your wallet.

                Can I join? I don't have a cell phone either. Or an Ipod.


                Is this maybe some shared trate of WFO builders? "People who do not like modern thechnology are more likely to build brick ovens" - that kind of thing .

                ...only obviously a computer is a vital component of building one, so maybe I'm wrong.
                "Building a Brick oven is the most fun anyone can have by themselves." (Terry Pratchett... slightly amended)
