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!

            Hi Warren and welcome aboard.
            Where abouts in this wonderful country do you call home?
            What oven and size are you planning on building?
            Good to see you well under way BUT mate, well I would have dug a deeper perimeter beam footing and located a dew extra 12mm reinforcing bars into them. Remembering that the total mass of your oven will be resting on this perimeter area of your foundation and will need to be strong enough to support over a tonne in weight.
            Anyway, keep the pics coming.

            Cheers.

                Very nice setting for your oven! Nice looking build as well. How is the hearth insulated?

                      Ouch.

                      LOVE your stand design and your work looks great. How far along are you on the dome? You might want to take a break and think about that insulation.

                        gooday ken524....
                        i will be insulating the dome at a later stage during construction.
                        have not had a chance to work on it because of the weather and other commitments. fully intend to get into it again very soon and will post further pics.will have it fired up before xmas but not fully finished.

                          Youll be pushing to get the oven to retain any heat without hearth insulation, all the heat will just flow out of of the floor..

                            Warren,

                            We are concerned that your oven doesn't have any insulation UNDER the cooking floor. From the pictures it appears you placed your floor bricks right on the surface of the concrete hearth.

                              Thanks all for the feedback .... and i have had a look at your ovens .... unreal!
                              am now thinking that i may have to do some insulating underneath ... by what you are all telling me.
                              will concentrate on the dome etc for now and later on will modify the underneath of the slab with insulation.
                              this will give me thinking time of how to go about it as i may have to take a different approach to do it.
