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!

  • Completed oven in Glendale, Arizona

    Hi All,

    Introducing our new 36" oven. It was a lot of work even though the dome was made of pre-cast sections. A local brickyard stocked the Superior Clay Products 36" oven bundle so I thought it would be a good way to get started.

    Son, brother and me on right.

    Rustic looking arch. Easy to do after a couple of brews.



    Framing was done in a couple of hours.



    The finished product, three months in the making. I chose Valspar elastomeric masonry paint to coat the stucco, available from Lowe's. 52" diameter perlcrete insulation over the oven, then mineral wool wrapped around the dome and then 11.5 cu ft loose perlite to fill the enclosure. Home Depot had a special on tile so I bought five pieces to cover the landing area. I hope everyone that builds an oven feels the same sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that I got from this project.

    Cheers,

    Azpizzanut

      You gave me some ideas to incorporate stucco into my build.
      I like your oven....The thing I like best is that it is FINISHED!

      I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
