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 will be doing my ground preperations this weekend, a bit later than planned but at least it will be a start. Of course once there is a big, ugly bald patch in the garden I will be nagged to get it done quicker

          Hi, OK so it took me a year to get where I am but I finally cut the ground towards my 42" pompeii oven today. Will be laying the foundation slab on Friday.

            Phill I never laid a brick in my life and built the dome in under 8 hours no probs, looks good from the inside too. No cement visible, I used" your brick oven" by Russel Jeavons.
            Brilliant book. I Bought all the books I could find but this was the only one I needed, crossed ref'd with the plans on forno bravo. Base and stand day1, slab day2 , dome and arched doorway day3, second arch and porch day4.
            I really think with good planning an oven could be completed from base to finnished dome in two days, Drymix footings, hollow block base (mass filled) Form's and slab. day 2 dome and doorway.
