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!

  • The Chicken Shack

    ...well that's what our friends called it...I'll get the real name when we add the wood fired pictures.

    This was a cool wood fired grill place that had three large vertical grills with racks of wood burning coals and spits of rotisserie chickens turning in front of them. They also had another two vertical wood fired grills for other meats.

    Chickens, rabbit, lamb, tenderloin, mixed grilled meats......and hand cut potatoes! What a place. Juicy herbed chicken was the house speciality!

    They took us 'case of the WFO connection
    ...we'll go back to get pictures too!

    Re: The Chicken Shack

    Sounds like a place I used to stop by on my way home in Sicily. Almost a cave of a place, they had a big rotisserie going out front with 30 or so birds on it. Inside, if you chose to venture that far, they had a hot bar with potatoes and various breaded Sicilian dishes to accompany your rotis bird.

    I'd park on the side of the road under a big Eucalyptus, and the owner, five foot nothin', unshaved and no teeth would come out and give me a death hug from hell. His wife, four-and-a-half feet tall would kiss me and wildly gesticulate, drawing me insie that cave of a shop to show me all they'd made that day for my evening gastronomic pleasure.

    They were wonderful! I miss the heck out of them and their birds. For the life of me, I can't recreate their recipe......

    Anyone got a good stuffing for a rotis chicken? They used garlic, onion, olives, olio d' oliva (of course). They were awesome birds!
    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

      George, we salt and pepper the inside, add a little olive oil, some rosemary/thyme/sage and a whole lemon, rolled and pierced....and get that sucker spinning.

      It's not really a stuffing, more flavoring and moisturizer....was what you had an actual stuffiing type thing?
