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!

    CHRISTMAS GREETINGS TO ALL WFO'ers.

    On the eve of Christmas day, I would like to wish all a safe and happy festive season.

    The WFO is fired up and at temperature, and I am attempting my first Christmas turkey in the WFO.

    We are having Boston Turkey - a boned out turkey, leaving the legs and wings, stuffed and tied, with roast veg and gravy. All washed down with some lovely sparkling shiraz. (After a few homebrew Czech Pilsners whilst cooking)

    The temperature is a beautiful 26degC down the hill, and a lovely 21degC here at Greenhill. Perfect.

    Tomorrow is a day with the family, munching on SA Prawns, oysters & Calamari. Might even think about a fire up for pizza dinner with any leftovers.

    Take Care.

    Craig

    Merry Christmas,

    The turkey went down superbly last night. I was quite happy in how it turned out, though I think the oven was a little on the hot side (result of running around all yesterday and lighting up late!!) I perhaps could have had the oven a little cooler, mind you, everything cooked superbly.

    Today has been a wonderful day. It is now just after 5pm, 25degC and we have had a wonderful seafood and cold meat/salad lunch. Very relaxing stress free day.

      Boomers WFT- great your turkey turned out well!

      We had pizza last night and oven should be good for our turkey by mid day here in West Virginia. First time for us last night to make pizza for 6 people and it was a lot of fun- was cold and windy but didn't stop anyone from bringing out their pizza to watch it cook and stay close to the oven to keep warm.

      Merry Christmas to all.
