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!

  • First build price

    Hey everybody,
    i'm new in this brick pizza oven world, and i'm in my way of building one.

    I wish to build a Pompeii oven, not sure about the size (36"-42"), and i'm looking for information about the size of the budget needed for this kind of project.
    Assuming i have all the needed tools and I wish to build a simple looking, but yet as professional as I can quality oven, what kind of number should i expect.

    Thanks to you all and a sorry note about my English,
    Guy

    Re: First build price

    It all depends on materials. I have spent about $1,000 and still need FB insulation blanket and exterior shell materials. Started with a $300/2 yard concrete pour for the foundation. I had a complex pour so it was expensive. About $100 for wood forms and rebar. Two hundred and fifty dollars for fire bricks. I am using home brew mortar so Sand, Lime, Clay, Portland cement added $75. Clay flue another $45. Grinder disks, material for IT tool, gloves, wet/dry saw blade, and misc stuff about $250.
