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!

  • NW Arkansas or SW Missouri dry mix or fireclay sources?

    Afternoon everyone. I have been calling everyone in the phone book that I could find and also the people they refer me to trying to find someone that stocks the Heatstop dry mix or fireclay for the home brew and have found nobody.

    This is extremely troublesome, everyone saying that the stuff in the pail will work although it isnt water resistant therefore it isnt up to code...

    Aside from that, the plans call for the RIGHT stuff...

    Any help sourcing materials would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    I ordered mine from Harbison-Walker or ANH. Do a web search for the site, i called and ordered it over the phone. Was 50 for a bag of fireclay and 20 to ship. Think the dealer was in Kansas, might be able to drive there.

      Have you tried the special order desk (contractors desk) at HD? It's really not unobtanium. Their masonry supplier could throw a sack into the next shipment, and save you the shipping costs you would pay at a internet supplier.

      Have you tried pottery or ceramics suppliers? Seems like an artsy-craftsy corner of the world.

      You could also call the manufacturer, and ask for a local vendor.
