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!

      Hi hi!,
      a man (or woman) of few words.
      Don't be bashful here in this forum as you will get all the help and advice to achieve a great wood fired oven.
      You will spend many hours sorting through all the posts to see the range of information available.
      Search, read, ask and enjoy.

          Hi all, yes I'm planning on building a dome brick oven. Yesterday I started to design it using autocad. I figured I can get a real accurate brick count plus the angles I'll need to get a real tight fit.

            I CAD-built several ovens before I ever put mortar to brick. Welcome from another Jersey builder.

                  Funny.

                  I only use spreadsheets at work.

                  I wonder if Excel could do the job..........

                    Re: hi

                    A couple of hrs at my dining room table with a pencil, legal pad, ruler, and protractor. Then another hour or so laying out brick halves on my garage floor.
                    Overly simplistic to some, foolish to others for not utilizing modern technology; extremely gratifying to me......and not at all time consuming. I wish other aspects of the build had gone as quickly and smoothly.

                    Welcome and good luck!!!

                      I agree. Something about hands-on is so much better.

                        RT, simple but effective. Did you utilize some type of cardbord to help transfer this information onto the hearth?

                          I had 1/2 of a sheet of 1/4" luan plywood I wasn't using......came in handy for the layout and then again cut and screwed to 2x4 scraps for the only form I used - on the entry arch.
