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!

  • ceramic fibre board? or what else?

    Does anyone know where I can get some ceramic fibre board, or something else that's suitable, in or near Summerland, BC, Canada? Or , it would be helpful if you could tell me the names of products that I could use for the hearth insulation. Thanks a lot,
    Tom

    Calcium Silicate Board (calsil) is the next best thing. A minimum of 2", unless you are placing it on top of a vermicrete or perlcrete layer .

      A company that sells WFO's here in Aus actually use the fibre blanket under the hearth as well as over the dome.

        Not a real good idea for underneath. Even if it settles evenly,(without causing undue cracks in the dome and flu) it will not have the same insulation factor when it is crushed flat

          Thanks, I have no idea where I would get any of that. I have heard back from a potter, and she may have some kiln bricks for me. That should do it.

            I may not have understood the original question, but I was answering the question for "names of products that I could use for the hearth insulation". Kiln bricks are not the same thing .

              I'm looking at some soft bricks, used to insulate a kiln. Firebricks sit on top of these.

                  try searching locally for refractory suppliers.
