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!

  • New guy in North Texas

    Hi everyone, I have just started building my 42" oven.
    Thanks for all the good information.
    So far I have the base built, six inches of vermiculite/cement mix, and started the fire brick floor. Im waiting on four bags of Heatstop 50 to arrive to build my dome.

    Thanks, Todd

      That's what I was going to say!

      We can get pretty excited about pictures of a simple oven stand, so while you're waiting for the heatstop, why not post some of yours? I'd like to see it...

      Enjoy your build!

            Nice...off to a good start. I also think those mix matches sized bricks/stones are going to look great around the outside.

              Great to meet you Todd! I'm Layla and I'm new here too. My husband has this great idea of building an oven, so I figured I'd get some resources together for him.
              Hi, I'm new here.

                Hi Layla! you and your husband should go for it! Its the most fun I have had in a while.. it may seem overwhelming at first but if you just give it a try you will find it is really not very difficult. Keep me posted!

                  Go Layla My first project was a fireplace and just did oven/grill/smoker - concrete is the most forgiving construction material there is. If you get it close it will work. Not like woodworking or plumbing. It is easier than all except its heavy and its forever. PS I was born in Erie
