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,
    I'm new to the forum, new to the whole brick oven thing, but after 2 days of reading I'm chomping at the bit. Think I'll stop by the yard and see if they have any firebrick on Monday. Thanks for all the great posts and this site.
    I've been working on making a good loaf for 20 years, (bread that is) and now see what I'm missing.
    have to get back to reading!

      I checked out your build pictures, nice. I will be so happy if mine comes half that good. By the way, where is the heatstop?

        I'm not sure of the question. Where do you purchase it? FB sells a similar product called Refmix.

          I was looking at picture 061 dome and floor after the fire, and thought I was looking at the top from the outside. The picture is kind of Escher like in that the shadows make the curve apear convex. I must be a little dyslexic vision wise. If that was the outside, that would be months worth of cutting!

            Mark - that view is from the inside. I believe that with the proper saw and patience, an oven could be built without any mortar. I used plenty on the outside to fill in the gaps.
