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!

  • Pics of inside brick ovens?

    Hi

    I was wondering if someone can post pics of the inside, particularly the mortar joints in your ovens?

    Thanks

              This will make you feel better RJ.

              I had to go back in and point some mortar in there. It has been more than 6 years since I built it and no bricks have fallen out!

              I built with forms and it shows in the mortar problems...

                What kind of mortar did you use?

                    It has a casted arch? And they are able to ship a unit built of brick without it breaking apart? I guess it's possible if they don't use UPS.

                      In Naples the door is a standardized item. All ovens of all sizes use the same cast iron arch. Doing a google image search for Neapolitan Pizza Oven will give you lots of different angles.

                        My oven has similar gaps. I went in and mortared after the fact although the oven form manufacturer said I dont need to, it was bothering me.

                          I was careful to wipe off any extra mortar between each joint as I went up so luckily didn't have to go back in later.

                            Gianni,

                            What did you use for your floor - looks pretty clean?

                              Les,

                              Soapstone, baby! I found a local countertop guy on craigslist who had cutoffs that had virtually no veins in them for $200. He has since come by the house and downed numerous beers while asking me endless questions about the oven
