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!

  • Materials for WFO in Jamaica

    Help!

    I am planning to build my WFO after years of promising my wife her outdoor kitchen. My biggest problem is sourcing the following key materials:

    *Refractory Cement
    *Firebricks
    *Vermiculite


    Regular Portland Cement is manufactured locally and imported slag cement is available. Can I use either, because importing any special cement is a bureaucratic nightmare...

    I have access to many, many red and yellow clay bricks that were part of old sugar factories around Montego Bay. Some of them come directly from the chimney of an old sugar boiler. Can these bricks be used in the high temperatures in the WFO? Many similar bricks are actually in use in open hearth grills and seem to perform without much trouble - then again, they are not holding the heat like a WFO.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am in construction so am familiar with most technical issues that this project entails.
Working...
