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!

  • Ciao from Sonoma, CA

    Hi All, Thanks for all the amazing information on this website. I've been reading these posts for the last two years now and I'm getting closer and closer to starting my build. I'm just down the road from the Forno Bravo location in in Windsor, CA which makes things pretty convenient for me. Two summers ago I did a complete backyard remodel with all new patio, redwood arbor that sits on a concrete slab and while I was framing out the slab I poured my foundation for my future Pompeii WFO. Just recently printed the Pompeii 2.0 plans and have two questions before I get started. My goal is to build the block stand and pour the hearth as step one. Then later in the summer start my build.

    I want to build a 42" Pompeii (Tuscan Design) and follow the plans pretty closely. I've already poured my slab and it's dimension are 77w x 86d. Plenty big enough for a 42" oven.

    My first question is what dimensions should my block stand be? I'm confused because on pg 13 it says the stand should be 65" x 78" and on pg 66 under Materials for 42" oven it say's the stand should be 72" x 84". I'm thinking the 72 x 84 is the way to go. Any thoughts?

    Secondly, I was wondering why some pictures of the block stand show a course of blocks cut in half? If four 8" blocks give you your height of 32 inches tall isn't the course of half blocks going to make your height to high? I was looking at the examples of this on page 22 & 23, ex. 2.1 and 2.6.

    Sorry to start firing questions off right out of the gate but I want to get off to the right start on this project.

    Thx.
Working...
