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!

    Here's a couple of the dealers I used in my build.

    My local brickyard is Boychuck Stone, on Rt. 22 WB in Springfield, just past Springfield Ave. Great place, huge selection of brick, flue tile, stone, bluestone, free cuts. Problems: They only sell heat-stop in the ten pound bucket. No web site.

    I went to Progressive brick, despite being way up near Teterboro Airport, because they have "red" firebrick. It was also the buck-a-brick place at the time. Red or white, full sized or splits, same price. They have heat-stop in the fifty pound bags. They carry the full line of Rumford throats and fancy chimney pots by superior clay. A note on the red firebrick, don't kill youself to get it. It's not very red, and seems to fade to beige in a few seasons.

    I used eBay vendors for a lot of stuff, including this guy for bag after bag of Perlite. I now notice that he sells the perlite/portland mixture that the pool guys use, but it may be silly to pay to ship portland. This costs more to ship than to buy. I also bought my face brick on eBay.

    I bought my HW insblock19 from Kraemer Gunite down near Philly. It was a closeout on an odd size (2 1/2") so I don't know what they would have now. Nice folks. I found my local Harbison-Walker branch to be less than helpful, but who knows, everybody can have a bad day.

    Of course you're gonna be a regular at the masonry isle of the Home Depot or equivalent.

    Good luck with your build, and chime in with more NYC area sources if you like.
