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!

  • In Need of Advice

    Hello everyone,

    I stumbled upon this website about one year ago in an attempt to improve my own pizza making abilities. This was definitely the best site that I came across. After a couple years of tinkering I can now make, in my mind, a fairly decent pizza. Currently I am 19 years old so I figure I have lots of time to improve.

    At this time I do not have a wood oven but intend to install one sometime in the future. I have found that a barbeque with an infrared feature and a pizza stone replicates a wood oven fairly well. I feel that I am in need of advice when it comes to making a loaf of bread. I have not been able to make anything that I considered “good.” I cannot brown the outside of the loaf without drying out the bottom quarter of it. Also, I desperately want to have air bubbles in my loaf but I have not been able to get any so far. Can anyone give a beginner some helpful tips?

    Thanks a lot,
    -jon
