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!

  • Found you guys after doing a course

    Hi,
    Yesterday I completed a weekend pizza oven making workshop with Alan Watt at the Eltham Hotel in, err, Eltham, NSW, Australia.

    As part of my research I kept coming across this forum in the search results. So I thought I'd better sign up and further my research.

    I am planning on building a "low tech" oven.
    I've got the bricks for the base laying around from years of reno'ing.
    I'm going to rip a sheet of iron off another patio (that will come down, eventually) and use a few hardwood studs to support this bedded into the bricks.
    Then I'm thinking Hebel blocks followed by a "heat bank" of white crushed rock/sand/clay I have leftover (***although I'm not sure on the heat bank based on a few searches here).
    40mm clay paver's for the base of the inside of the oven (which I'm going to suss out tomorrow in Ballina).
    Then a 40mm clay/sand/crusher dust and cement mix for the dome followed by a 50mm vermiculite/clay/cement mix for the insulation as per the workshop (another thing I need to look into due to searching on here).

    I will finish it off with a clayey water cement slurry that I will paint on (as per the workshop).

    Whoa that was a bit full on. Anyway hi ")
Working...
