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!

    Do I put mortor on 1st row of arch bricks or lay them dry onto base then mortor them row 2 etc or will the arch fall over until I build the actual dome

    Re: Confused

    Mortar brick to brick - do not mortar to the insulation, just leave it dry. There is PLENTY of weight to keep it in place. I just re-read your post. The first thing you are going to build is the arch?

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      The bottom arch brick should be mortared to the dome brick next it, on its side not the base. It's the same first row of dome bricks,mortared to each other on the bricks sides, no mortar on the base. This way the dome and arch are able to float and expand and contract in the heating any cooling of the oven.

              Are you planning on cantilevering your supporting slab?
