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!

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!

  • 100 cm oven building in Romania

    So I decided to build my own WFO. As I mentioned I'm from Romania, there are not plenty of those around but I was in Italy a few times and I loved the taste of fresh "Pizza al forno legna".
    Since the plans that I found on the net were for much bigger ovens than I needed, I decided to make my own plans according to my own needs and space available. I'll make the oven chamber 100 cm in diameter and I left 20 cm for the wall thickness.
    Do you think that's enough? Any thoughts on the plans and the measurements? I can make some plans with imperial units too if needed.

    Florin,

    Are you going to insulate with a blanket or vermiculite? Also, covered with an enclosure or stucco?
    Check out my pictures here:

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      I'm thinking a blanket and stucco. I'm open to any suggestions and advice, I don't know how it would be best.

        I aleady dug the hole for the foundation and made the rebar frame but I don't know why I can't upload the photo on the forum. ("upload failed" message)

          Two things, I would not want that point in my chest when working the oven.

          It may be that your image is to large to upload. You may need to use a lower resolution setting on your camera before taking them or use a program to lower the resolution. I find 1024x768 more than detailed enough for the purpose of this forum.

            It depends on the thickness of the bricks you intend to use for the dome, number of layers of the insulation blanket (much is always better), and on the stucco layer and any finishing layers you intend to clad your dome with.
            Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?
            I forgot who said that.

              That's a picture with the foundation frame. I used 10mm rebar for contour and wire mesh for inside. I placed the iron reinforcements 5 cm inside the margins and under the future surface of the foundation. I intend to cast it in 2 weeks when I'm back from holiday (Italy again ) where I'll do some more research.

                I think the point is the slab - not the countertop

                  that was the first thing that popped into my head.....the corner or "point" in front of the oven. Definitely don't want that.
