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!

  • Finished 36'' oven with fireplace in northeast CT

    Hi everyone, I just joined FB and wanted to share my build. Wish i had joined before i started the project to get some tips and ideas. And should of taken more pics of construction of the oven but will on the next one.
    The construction took place durning the winter months, so i tarped and heated the work area. It wasn't fun on the cold windy days but at least i had work.

    Hi Stonewall,

    That one towering oven, really like the walk in wood storage, I didn't see any hearth insulation, do you have any above the oven?

      Thanks laurentius, Yes i did put a 4'' layer of vermiculite/portland mix under the oven. Is that enough under the oven? Also have lots of insulation above oven. fb blanket, loose vermiculite, then roxul on top of that to completely fill area on top.

          That is quite the masonry structure! What did you do for the footing?

            I usually do the footings but on this one the homeowner did it before i started. He dug it out and poured it thick. but its not down below frost level. It extends past on all sides.
            Homeowner was going to build oven himself but he figured he wouldn't have the time to put into it, he is a great general contractor and carpenter. As you can see from his work on the roof part.

                Stonewall, that wooden deck frighten me! Do you have kids, do you have a screen for that fireplace and a door for your oven? Have your insurance agent, seen it yet?

                  I built the oven for a customer, he is going to make the door for the oven. not sure on the screen but i see your point. will have to put screen on when not watching the fire or something covering the wood deck.

                    Hi Stonewall,

                    Since you build that for some one else, it might be a good idea to give him a written warning and advise him on getting a screen and door and cautionary notes, to CYA. By all means, keep a copy for yourself.

                      Thanks, he is in the process of making the door now. He will come up with something to protect the wood deck, or use a screen.
