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!

        More like kneeling down. It doesn't bother me at all and my friends have tried it. Seems okay so far, but ask me again in a few decades

          It's a 36" oven. The main reason I built the way I did was due to the narrow space in my yard. The foundation is actually not poured concrete, but sitting on solid 3'x3'x4" thick concrete blocks (the city wouldn't allow it me to pour it, but I had a few engineer friends help me out).

          The oven is encased in a brick "box." I covered it with about 2" ceramic fiber blanket and filled the "box" with perlite and leftover clay bricks.

          The chimney goes under the BBQ grill all the way to the back and goes to another chimney behind the BBQ pit wall, where it has an opening at the top directly to the pit's chimney. I'm surprise how well the shared chimneys worked.

          I found some cultured stones on craigslist and put those on after the brick laying work was done. All this work took me approximately on/off 3 months, mostly done on weekends and sunny weather. Hope this helps clarify some of my build steps.
