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!

  • I need help

    We have a functional brick pizza oven in our backyard. My son built it, but then never "finished" it. So, my husband has been doing his best to brick the outside to make it pretty. I know we have insulation in the garage, but don't know where it needs to go. Also, does it need a chimney? I thought it did, but my wayward son is not giving us any guidance.
    Please give me any advice you can.
    Thanks so much.

    Go to eBooks & CD ROMs :: Forno Bravo Store and down load Pompeii Oven Instruction eBook V2.0 (pdf) :: eBooks & CD ROMs :: Forno Bravo Store. It will give you every thing you need to finish the oven.

      Thank you so much. I called my husband he said he was done! I don't think he put in a chimney. He did put in the insulation. Will it be ok without a chimney? Can the smoke just come out the oven door?
      Uh oh....

        Yes it can but smoke will be in your face.

          You can always add insulation on top, it's what's under the oven floor (or not) that may be the problem. You can run an oven without a chimney (which vents above the entryway to the oven) but it won't be pleasant to use.

              If venting proves to be a problem you could have a metal hood fabricated for over the door, which could get the fumes out of your face.

                  dmun, That metal hood over the door is a great idea. I can see that that would be and easy fix to n3kids problem. Maybe go down each side too and add another door out front.Gene
