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!

  • Standing water in the wood store

    I installed my Artigiano 120 on an existing patio, which it turns out, slopes back into the wood storage area. Which in turn makes a lake and soaks my wood!

    Luckily, we were planning on tiling over the existing slate, so it will work out. We are adding a layer of mortar to slope the floor of the wood store forward. Still, if you are working on an existing patio, or pouring a new foundation, this is something to take into consideration.

    Here's a photo.

    You could also drill a hole in the slab....it's not a lot of water to drain away.

      Just a thought; although it won't help anyone who has already built their oven. I'm sure everyone strives to pour their pad as level as possible. It just makes sense. Everything after the pour is that much easier to build. But mabey before stacking all the blocks a sill seal could be placed under the first row. Alls that neds to be done is set it on the pad and start stacking. The weight of the blocks and concrete fill is more than enough weight to compress the seal and make the wood storage water tight. As far as the opening is concerned; a threshold would suffice. Something as simple as white oak. White has a much tighter cellular structure than red and less prone to rot. Three or four coats of a marine poly and held in place with a good construction adhesive.

        We raised our open areas an extra floor tile, both the fridge and the storage area on the side.

            James,

            I had the same issue with grade - I just set a few paver's to force the water around the opening, I had no choice - water always seems to go downhill.

            Sounds like you have a viable option.

            Bacongreese - that is one awesome looking island.
