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!

  • Britain's got talent..For WFO building

    Hi everyone.
    Just getting started on my build. Great forum but a little lacking on UK specifics.
    Post here any info on material sourcing etc for the UK.
    Keep it metric if possible
    True road sign in States "All signs metric for the next 20 miles!"

    Doccrow
    the information on the forum comes from the members, especially supply and sources of suitable materials.
    If it is lacking from the UK and Scotland, then they need to lift their socks and contribute more!
    Anyway welcome aboard and enjoy!

    Cheers.

      Someone should start and keep upto date a sticky UK thread (maybe they already have...)

      This is what I know:
      - Vermiculite - mytub.co.uk - I used them, cheap and free delivery.
      - Firebricks - kilnlinings.co.uk - saw this yesterday - looks good and not too expensive.
      - Flour - nifeislife.com - Got 20 bags of Caputo the other day - it really is worth it.

        looks like I need to get me finger out and start building.

        someone at work today was on about barbecues, and asked me gas or charcoal, my reply- wood fired pizza oven left them somewhat confused

        I fancy the idea of pizza on saturday, then do the meat and veg for sunday, and then the weeks bread supply
        Why oh Why Did I stumble across this forum- its going to be expensive

          That sounds like the go Steve, but don't forget to insulate, insulate some more and then insulate even more to get the most out of it
          all you need to do now is to extract that digit and do it.
          Get those fellow workers envious mate!

          Cheers.
