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!

  • How many Bricks are needed???

    Does anyone know how many bricks are needed to make a 40 inch pompeii pizza oven. I am about to purchase 230mm x 113mm x 50mm. The first course I worked out to be 24 half bricks or 12 full bricks. Is there a formula to work it out?

    Cheers

    24 bats for the first course doesnt sound enough?

      If he doesn't use them as soldier course.. then that should be about right?

      I used about 260, 123x57x257mm fire bricks but my oven is more like 45.5 incher... yeah I know it's a big oven but I hadn't stumbled upon this site when I started it.. which led to few other mistakes I could have avoided if I had. But it still cooks good pizza and doesn't seem to leak too much heat, so I guess it isn't too bad for first oven.

        OK.

        Each course should reduce by 1 brick (ish).
