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!

  • Redneck Dave needs a little friendly help.

    Since I covered my inner arch with a piece of angle iron and mortar..... I now need some help.

    I want to recreate the look of bricks in that spot.
    So...I figured I would just slice a brick into 1/2 "tiles" and mortar them on.
    Thereby bringing back the look of my old arch.

    Now here's the rub. My tile saw can't cut a full brick. I can only cut part way through each side, and finish the cut with a hammer.

    So I was hoping one of you kind people would cut a few bricks up for me. I need about 20 slices.

    Of course I would play for the bricks, packaging, and shipping. And maybe a Pizza Hut gift card or something.....

    Anyways.. Help!

    Dave

    Check the pawn shops in the area and look for construction sites with brick going up. You may be able to find some help locally.
    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste

        Dave, do you have a brick now you are trying to match?

        You can get veneer brick in many colors and style at the local yards.

        Seems like you shouldn't have to ship bricks....

          I didn't think of that!

          I was just trying to match the firebrick, but good tip.
          I will just visit the brick store.

          Thanks

            Dave,

            Our local firebrick yard sells firebrick splits (thin firebricks). Our local small-town hardware store even carries a few for fireplace repairs. Check your local refractory supply places. The splits are about the same price as whole bricks, but you would save a fortune on shipping.

            I would be happy to cut you some firebrick splits if you are desperate, but the shipping cost is going to be painful.

              I appreciate it.

              I will do some checking this week to see what I can come up with.
