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!

  • Hello from Japan

    Hi all,

    After years of being not happy with my home oven pizza results I finally turned to the internet to find out why and luckily stumbled upon fornobravo.com. Since then I have downloaded the free plans and started work on my own 36" oven but now I need some assistance.

    The only blocks I could find in Japan were 39cmx19cmx10cm so they are not so wide and after building I'm a little worried that the wall will not be strong enough to support the concrete hearth....Anybody care to share their opinion?

    Thanks

    Stu

    Hello Sam,

    Do you have regular size firebricks for the oven? There are professional brick layers and concrete/cement experts on this forum who will get you cooking without too much difficulty.

    Cheers,

      Sam,

      Your bricks are ok. They are actually about right for a base. Please send photos of your construction plans and progress.

      Cheers,

        Hi Samuraistu,

        The blocks used here are fine. The Japanese building code requires that the blocks are mortared and Re-bared, the block are designed with channels for the Re-bar. I completed my oven a few months ago, you can view it under(Pompeii in Japan). You can also find the large blocks at your local Komeri home center.
