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!

  • Construction roadblocks

    Hello, My name is Mark. I'm from southwest Minnesota and I have started construction of a pizza oven. My progress so far is to have built up landscape blocks in 4 tiers in a circular pattern with an open front for wood storage. I've also poured the 4 in thick concrete cover over that. I ordered 2 in insulating board almost 2 yrs ago and also have the FB blanketing. I've found that the version 2.0 ebook is very helpful, but vague about some issues. I want to put a clay flue liner on top of a brick arch. I'm not an experienced mason and do not know how to support/attach the flue liner to the arch opening. What is supposed to hold up the liner? I have a 8 in square by 24 long flue liner. Arch will be 12.5 in high. Maybe I need 2 of these liners(??). For length, that is.
    I want a 42 in interior oven. With the 3 -24 by 36 FB boards, I will have to cut and fit in. Not sure about placement of the boards.
    Should the opening of the oven be the recommended opening size? Or is this the opening size that the door rests against? So, that the outer opening needs to be larger than the recommended opening?
    We have a big get-together the end of July, need to be done by then (haha). Thanks for any input!!

    Hi Mark,

    Go to the Newbie section and look for a thread by Lburou called Forno Bravo treasures, this thread has links so a dozen or so well documented threads for building WFO pompeli ovens. This is a good place to do your research and to get help beyond the plans.
