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!

  • Cost of Shipping to Asia

    Hi James,


    I'm seriously into this WFO that I want to build. Most of the resources/materials can be found in hardware stores and specialty stores but I'm finding it hard to find suppliers for FB blankets/panels or their equivalent. In addition, I want to purchase those professional lightweight peels and maintenance tools for the oven from Forno Bravo. How much would shipping them to the Philippines cost? Will it be cost-effective or will it be cheaper to have them fabricated here instead? With regards to the insulation what kind of companies am I looking for? It's so hard to locate these kind of companies/suppliers cause they are not property listed or not listed at all. I hope Forno Bravo has some affiliates here in southeast asia from which I can purchase materials.

    Any leads and tips to reliable suppliers in my area will be greatly appreciated.

    That depends on what the pirates off of Asia want for the ship.

    Sorrry, no clue. A couple of other PI ovens on this forum were built from local materials. That's what I would recommend doing.

      Haven't explored the forums that much yet. I didn't know there were some forum members from the PI who built their own WFO. Thanks for the update. Can you direct me to their threads?

      Thanks for the reply

        Hey Raffy,

        Keep exploring the Forum -- there are other builders in the Philippines who found the materials locally. That is definitely the best way to go.

        Let us know how it goes.

          I have good leads on perlite but I prefer vermiculite. Still researching on vermiculite suppliers and making sure that they provide it 100% asbestos free. But to be honest I would really like to use FB blankets and boards for insulation. I'll really have to burn the phone lines to find these companies. Not many businesses put out a website so potential clients can find them.

          For those in the Philippines heres a supplier of perlite

          Thanks, James.
