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!

    You have a good start. The slab, stand and structural slab are the parts that are the hardest work. Once you get to the actual oven build it is really fun. Good luck!

                          That part of the flue is pretty deeply buried in my oven, so I can't answer your question, the front stays pretty cool except right at the outer arch.

                          I like your full front chimney with the back roof configuration. What kind of shingles are you planning?

                            Thanks, I want to use the terra cotta round style roof tiles, but they are to expensive, so for now I am going to just use a imitation shake roof tile. but down the road if I can run across some I will change it out.

                            The chimmy will go up six total courses of brick and be capped off with red bullnose brick.
