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!

      thank you. I was a toolmaker/modelmaker in the aircraft industry. I also posted some pictures of my oven mold and casting process.

        Well, if you can make your brick look like your base you will be golden. Please post pics and start a thread on your build. There is alot of great experience out here on this forum.

        Update, just saw your oven casting, so forget the brick comment. again, nice casting, topnock. You need to move your build thread over to the "Pompeli Oven Construction" section. Much more viewing and activity there............

          I am casting the dome also, there are two other threads I started with no responces.
          one is pictures of my mold and the other is the casting of the dome. would love to have some more feedback on it. will be setting the dome on the base this weekend. then start to cure/burn the refractory. I will add the light weight insulating refractory during the week and hopefully stucco it over the following weekend, pizza party planned for first of Nov. will have to work the bugs out during Oct. I will try to condense them to one thread.
