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!

  • round oven

    I am an old mason and a friend asked me to help him build a woodfire pizza oven , we have come along way just getting to the oven part , this is an awesome project and I want to get it right ! It is a 4 ft. diameter round oven and I have the floor in and the first soldier corse creating the circle , a 24 in. wide entry . As soon as this rain stops we are going to start the dome . The first corse is 9 inch's tall and we are thinking about lowering the camber . with the first corse of 9 inch's and then 24 inch's of dome on top of that = 33 inch's is that to tall ? can we lower that and what would that do to the heating ? If it is 33 "s what should the height of the angle iron be that the door ? then the height of the bottom of the flu ? I am going to try to post pictures . thanks rocky

    Re: round oven

    Hey Rocky,
    Did you download the free plans from the fornobravo store? A lot of those questions are answered there...
    But in general, you want the dome to be lower than 33 inches. Most are from 18-22" interior height. Door should be 2/3 the height of the dome.

    Also, did you insulate under the oven floor? This is perhaps the most important step.

    Welcome,
    Drake
