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!

  • Recent build in Kingston, Tas

    Hi I have just finished my oven that I got as a pre cut kit from MFBC. surprisingly it didn't take as long to build than I first thought even though we have had one of the worst summers in Tasmania that I can remember. I had days where it was so hot that I had to go out and buy a shade umbrella to stop the motor going off too quick and than the next day havening to erect a gazebo to keep the rain off after I rendered it.

    I managed to keep my Christmas deadline set by my wife . Even if it was only to cooking stage. Since then I have finished it off in time for a little bit of summer left. Still haven't managed to have a pizza party outside now that it has been finished off but I'm hoping this weekend the weather holds out.

    I'm still struggling with the temp for cooking. If anything I'm too impatient to get started and am cooking too soon. I think its a matter of timing and more practice.

    Here is a photo of the finished oven.

    Hey mate,

    That looks fantastic; what an amazing job.
    I'm also from Kingston and we're planning on building one at the end of this year; I just hope it looks nearly as good as yours.

    Enjoy your pizza

        Great job,
        a little advice for you though, seal the outside bricks on your server top as they will easily stain and without the fire to burn off the fat/marks as within your hearth, will remain and spoil your efforts.
        Now the fun starts, enjoy!

            Thanks Neil, I do intend to but the weather has been too unpredictable here lately. I have been waiting for the bricks to dry so the sealant doesn't go white with the moisture.
