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!

  • Where to find fire clay

    Greetings all,
    I am trying to find where I might be able to get some fire clay from in NSW. I'm in Wollongong so a trip to Sydney to pick some up isn't an issue, but where to get it from is. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Doug.
    Love your build and cooking. Really informative and firing the urge to build my own.

      You can get real fire clay from pottery suppliers. I get mine from Claypave in Brisbane. If you want to go cheaper you can try a Cement Australia product called Briclayers Clay (fire clay) It is not true fireclay, but I believe it is quite suitable for the temperature range we fire our ovens in. You should be able to obtain it locally and save yourself a lot in freighting a one off item.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
