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!

  • Weather Proofing

    Just complete the curing process of our Premio2G110. It is cover by a barrel shaped roof that is basically an igloo. I am concerned about water entering the roof and wicking to the insulation/oven. There are a couple of very fine cracks in the mortar between the stones. Any products available to waterproof the natural stone as well as the mortar of the joints without change the color and appearance?

    Hi PilotDoc,

    We use SealKrete to waterproof our ovens. Whatever enclosure you build it needs to be waterproofed.

      Hello All,

      SealKrete is a vertical surface masonry/stone treatment. I've asked the manufacturer for a recommendation best suited to dome shape stucco structures. Hopefully they will respond with a variety of products to suit our needs.

      Cheers,
      Bob
