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!

  • Another Aussie on board

    Just doing the intro thing and saying hi.
    I don't have any immediate plans to build an oven, but it's one of those 'in a few years' kind of plans.
    I'm researching until then, in the hope that by then I will know what I am doing!
    Found this forum. Soaking up lots of info.
    Is nice to see some fellow Aussies here.

        Just finishing off the outdoor kitchen firstly. Them into the WFO, have mates who work for Midland Brick which will be a usefull source I'm sure. Will be nice to get Patio back into some sort of order rather than a construction site.

          You may also get some materials from Sila Australia, especially insulation and mortars.

              I deal with Sila on a weekly basis, if you want, I can tell them to look after you. PM me your requirements and we can go from there.

                  Hello fellow Perthites.. nice to see a few more on here.

                  Thought i'd throw up some suppliers for what i used.

                  Ceramic fibre blanket - Gourmet Wood Fired Ovens
                  Ceramic Fiber insulation, they recently had a special. 2 x rolls for $99.. which was around 7.2 metres by 600.. I ended up needing more for a 36inch oven, so for a 42inch you may require 3 x rolls? maybe you could offer them $150 for 3.


                  Vermiculite.
                  The Perlite and Vermiculite Factory
                  I ended up needing 2 x 100L bags which were around $25 each. this was for a 4inch Base on a 36inch oven.

                  Bricks i got standard cream mexi from midland brick, was $300 all up from memory.. these are fired at 1400c celsius and have been awesome so far, (3months in).

                  Mortar i used a SILA product.. Silaset 40D. I tried going through SILA but as above.. "only sell to public" i finaly got them to agree to a cash sale.. got a quote and realised they were overcharging more than it would cost to get from a shop.
                  Got it from the only Perth place as far as SILA said..

                  The Potters Market‎
                  56 Stockdale Road
                  O'Connor WA 6163
                  (08) 9314 6707

                  Expensive purchase.. You will most likely need 2 x bags or more, dependant on how you cut your bricks. was around $60 or $70 a bag.
                  Only upside.. its really awesome mortar.. and to date.. i have no cracks inside my dome whatsoever....

                  If you have any questions let me know

                      Are you building a Pompeii 42" Tuscan, or some other variation?
