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!

  • Oven Repair: repointing arch

    What correct refractory cement should I use to repair the failure of the Refractory cement in the joint of my inner arch. The arch is in two solid pieces and is not moving at the base on either side. I only need a little, mabey a qt total to repair a few other novice bricklayer mistakes. The pictures should explain it better.

    Thanks

    You could pretty much use any refractory mortar. What did you use when you built it? I don't know if they would even sell such a small quantity - you may be best at using the home brew. I would take an angle grinder to clean out all the loose stuff plus it will give you a clean surface for the repair.

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

      I had both homebrew and a bag from FornoBravo. I can't remember what I used where.

          Thanks Tom, not looking for gifts, just advice, but is much appreciated. How comes the backyard? Any new projects?

          Hope all is well with you and yours.

            All is well, the latest use of your wonderful honey is this recipe, it is so freaking good it is unbelievable (I don't usually do recipes, but this one I did):

            I am sending you a couple of tubes of repair refractory mortar, they fit in a caulk gun, just clean out the loose mortar in the joints, gun this stuff in and tool the joints flush with your finger.

              Thanks again tom, the sauce looks great, unfortunatly all the other people in our house are pretty bland lovers when it comes to sauces. Taco time sauce is too much for them.
