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!

  • Exposed Hardiebacker

    I will soon have my 1/2" Hardiebacker completely up and the metal roof installed. If I am unable to get my brick and stone work done, winter is closing in fast, can I leave the cement board exposed or still tarp when I am not using the oven? Joints will be taped and finished with polymer modified thinset mortar. I was thinking of rolling on Redgard but some sites say not to leave that product exposed to the elements.

    Thanks,

    David

    I also thought about stapling some 30lb roofing felt on the walls and removing it in the spring.

    Hardiebacker should be OK, I would not leave concrete board exposed though.

      Although the Hardibacker won't be damaged by water, you might need to spend extra time this spring cleaning it prior to application of the thinset for the stonework. I'd put a tarp over it just to keep it a bit cleaner...you don't want the thinset peeling up as you apply it because of too much dirt or dust accumulated over the winter.

        Thanks, Tscar.

        Thanks, Mike.

        If I do need to clean the hardiebacker in the spring could I used TSP like before painting or should I use a different product?

        Thanks,

        David

          My understanding is that the thinset needs a clean, dust free Hardibacker surface to "get a grip". I would think TSP will work well, I'd just be sure to give the cleaned surface a good water rinse to make sure there are no TSP phosphate residues left before you start spreading thinset.
