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!
I have all of that stuff, I'm a distributor, but I'm in Michigan. call Spec Building Materials, they are a roofing distributor, headquartered in Kansas City, branches from there to Texas...last number I had was 1-800-821-3204
You can also do the same search in google maps to get more local results. A more general "Roofing suppliers" might generate better leads. You really need a local supplier: this stuff is mostly too heavy to ship. If you do need to get a pallet load shipped, it's much more affordable to get it shipped to a local trucking depot, instead of a domestic liftgate delivery.
We used clay tiles on our oven roof. Our local roofing company normally stocks clay tiles but they were waiting to order a shipment and they were in no hurry to get it. We looked into ordering tiles online but everyone seems to have a minimum order of 100 field tiles and 25 for speciality tiles. It is possible to use just the fields and cut them with the wet saw to make the ridge caps/end finishers, gable rakes, etc. but drilling holes is a bear. One tile bit does only one tile and takes five minutes. You can of course mortar them in and forget about the drilling. Also, for a pizza oven you will want the short tiles for aesthetics. We ended up scrounging through the local yard and finding enough to get the job done and cutting up the fields where needed. If you can find the mission style half barrels, you can do everything with those. Very frustrating but worth it. Anyway, you can call Ludowici and explain your situation. They may have a dealer nearby or be willing to ship a small order. Ludowici Roof Tile - The World's Finest Clay Roof Tile
