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!

    I do not want to build a traditional clay oven but one out of bricks.

    The plan would be a 1m x 1m x 1m square oven with fire bricks on the inside surrounded by 50mm fireblanket and an exterior of clay brick to match the house and garden.

    The roof of the oven to be Vermiculite board with fire blanket and sand over it also. A 50mm hole in this for a small chimney and paving slabs with a chimney to complete the exterior.

    It is to be buit on 350mm concrete foundation with vermciculite as a base with 30mm sand for the fireslab oven floor.

    How much is wrong with this plan?

      OK no chimney and firebrick the ceiling, then Fireblanket?

        Move the chimney to the front outside the opening, if you want one, and firebrick the ceiling, yes.
