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!

  • Foundation question

    Have started my oven building adventure today and leveled a portion of my back yard with a bobcat. I have a question about the foundation size for a 42 inch oven. In the Forno Bravo instructions on page 16 it states a 73X86 inch foundation is required yet on the material list on page 66 it states that a 80X96 inch foundation is required. It also gives two different block stand dimensions for the same size oven. What is the correct foundation size?

    I am pretty sure you want the big dimension. I did not notice the conflict and went with the smaller dimension. This 'crowds' the dome when you have to insulate.

    It is baffling they haven't corrected it yet.

      FB really should have a wiki version of the instructions, and let the folks here have at the version control. The collective wisdom of this forum could create some killer instructions

          This is a great idea.
