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!

  • Proofing Containers

    Need some help on what to use as "proofing containers". I have a couple of the large white plastic commercial trays. If you use these, what do you cover the top tray with? Plastic wrap or damp towels?

    Do some people swear by the disposable plastic containers? Pictures please

    What about the tupperware containers, do they work better than others?

    Again, looking for input. I have to make 60+ pizzas for a party Saturday.

    Pictures help everyone.

    thanks

    This might not help at all, but I put my dough balls on an oven tray, cover them with a damp cloth and put them in the fridge. Sometimes I put all that inside a plastic bag as well. Your commercial trays should work fine for that.

      Re: Proofing Containers

      Hey... I can't help you for the Saturday gig. For future reference, here's a very nice set of ABS storage boxes. I bought this set quite awhile ago and am VERY happy with them.

      PIZZA DOUGH STORAGE BOX NEW CASE OF 6 - eBay (item 270375562604 end time Apr-26-09 12:50:09 PDT)

      They nest tightly so the top guy is the lid. For 60, this should work out well.
      They are also very useful for large amounts of food, like balling dough, mixing Italian sausage or transporting a bunch of stuff out to the smoker. Oddly enough, they actually fit in a conventional refrigerator.

      A real nice guy to deal with. There is a "Make Offer" button. He took $50 for the set. Well worth the price.

        For individual balls, this Rubbermaid product is cheap, and often on sale:

            Use the ones they sell at the grocery store in the sandwhich bag isle. The Glad throw away containers, only I don't throw them away.

            I have used trays, after doing both I prefer seperate containers.
