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!

  • Transistion from dome to oven entrance

    Hi all,
    My question relates to that area of the dome around the oven entrance; specifically, how to continue the chains/rows at that point. I'm sure everyone who has built a dome WBO has their own method, etc, but I'd be keen to see, preferably with a drawing/photo (!), just how it can be accomplished.

    Many thanks,

    Tailhook, if you are going to use an arch at your entry, then you should take a look at Ken's old kentucky dome photos. His work is really nice.

    If you are using angle iron method, then look at Georges pink elephant. His is nice also. I am sure there a lot of other photo's to look at, but those are the ones that I refer to most of the time.

    More recently, the badger build photos is a new way to take on the arch transition. It is also a very good idea.

      Here's another one to study: Balty Knowles

      I got a lot of inspiration and ideas for my dome from Balty's pics

          Keep reading. All the information you need has already been posted by someone else.
