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!

    Next stage was to organise the material i would be using for the benchtop/sides doors. I opted for compact laminate (13mm lcl).. possibly called trespa in other countries.

    Excellent durability.. perfect for outdoors.

    here is some pictures of the top getting cutout.. I was able to use the scraps from the cutout for a table! they threw in a free set of stainless steel legs.. and presto.. matching table!

        6 days in and very happy with the how its all coming along!

        slowly getting used to the brick saw! indeed a challenge with a 9inch blade.. having to cut each angle from both sides!

        Thankful to come out of this with both hands!

        Was able to get the arch started last night, but the keystone is yet to be cemented in, will be making something better tonight.. just had the little peice in there so the rest would dry in place.

          Hello chidding,

          Nice, I like it ! Looks like a well thought out base with clean design.

            1 week later and 2 rings completed... so far im happy with the progress made! once the anlges for the bricks were measured, cutting was the easy part, just mortaring took its time! especially once it angles upwards.
            Guessing its only going to get harder!

                Its amazing how quickly it starts to take shape. I havent had alot of time to work on it recently, and with the weather being so cold and miserable, its hard to find motivation aswell.

                So when last night the weather cleared up i finished early and managed to knock off 2 rings, sadly the only picture i have was before finishing off the last brick, but atleast it gives an indication of the progress made!

                Cant wait to have this done, got 1month + 1 week till wifes birthday, might be pushing it though!!?

                  Nice work. If it were mine I'd be concerned about the weight of the oven resting on four legs sitting on one paver each. I wet weather you may find one or more of them might sink a bit. It still may be possible to weld a wider plate onto the bottom of those legs. Try a calculation of your finished weight, you'll find it's pretty heavy.

                    Hey David,

                    On post 3 you can see the second pic, the legs are resting on a compact laminate sheet at the rear, So the load is spread over around 4/6 pavers, will be doing something similar at the front in a week or so time, will jack it up and put a bigger plate under it.

                    Appreciate the comments!

                    And yea its a heavy bastard, around 1tonne.

                      Re: Perth WA Pizza Oven/Outdoor Kitchen

                      Picked up the chimney today! looks really nice in stainless steel. Still undecided as to wether I paint it black or keep the stainless look.

                      Thoughts anyone? ..would the paint come off after a while in the wet?

                      Design in my head is using the spigot (anchor plate) similar to how others have done, then mounting the flue on the right, filling that box with insulation, then I plan on putting a blanket on the oven and rendering up to the box. does that make sense? would this work.. pretty similar to a double walled chimney, but was a cheaper option..

                      suggestions/thoughts anyone?

                        If you paint that beautiful metal black, I will drive the 2.5 days to WA myself and slap you silly

                          I have to agree with NathanC...except for the slapping silly part - can't drive to WA from the USA
                          If you did paint it black, I would use the high-temp spray paint used for wood stoves; good to something like 1200 degrees F. The outer shell of the stove pipe will never get anywhere close to that.
