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!
I cannot find it locally which is why I went searching for it on the trade/sell thread. None of the masonry supply clerks seem to know what I am talking about when I ask for it. I also called a local potter but he uses a different kind of clay for his work. I can get Heatstop locally but after reading on the forum it seems like a lot of builders prefer the "home brew". I will go that route if I cannot find a good way to get the fireclay. If you would like to wait it out to see if someone will come and pick it up rather than shipping it, I completely understand. Thanks again. Mike
Thanks for the link. The closest refractory is in Altoona and they primarily work with ceramics and do not sell fireclay. All others are at least 3hrs away. I live in the epicenter of Pa. with nothing close by. Mike
I am in Pittsburgh (3 hours away)this weekend and stopped by a fireplace/hearth store and they had some fireclay. I went ahead and bought some. I hope you have not gone to too much trouble. The weather here is starting to turn and I need to get rolling. I hope I did not cause you any inconvenience and thank you for your generous offer. Have a great weekend. Mike
No problem, I am glad you were able to find some at what was, I expect, a more reasonable cost...and you got to catch the sights in Pittsburg...Let me know when you get started and get some pictures posted
