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!

    Leeth,

    If you mean the arch and wall in front of the vent, depends on what you're doing. The wall brick that will be heated directly should be fire brick; the facade brick that won't be exposed to high heat or flame can be just about anything you like.

        Depending on where you are, you can get red(ish) fire brick. Mine came from Progressive Brick in New Jersey.

        Making your dome from common brick is not a good idea. The bricks tend to crack and chip. You don't want brick chips in your pizza. Some people have made the entry from red brick, and that's the most visible part. The dome? Use fire brick if you can get it.

              Re: bricks

              I agree that the tunnel entry should probably be firebrick. I think you could use a different brick on the outside of your arch as it does not get that hot there and after all, you are still using a clay brick that will stand some heat.

              You could use stone as an option.
