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!

    Hi All
    Will be sitting my oven on a sleeper base, with paving slab top.
    I want to put an enclosure around it and loose fill with insulation. However i don't want to do it out of something heavy like brick, i want to build a timber one.
    If the oven is thick, and insulated, will the heat be ok with the timber? I don't mind it getting warm , i just don't want to call the fire brigade!

    Hello Andycase,

    We do not recommend nor approve of using any wood in the design of the stand/base or the enclosure.

    Thanks,
    Heidi

      Hi
      Thanks for replying.
      Wood being used in the base won't be a problem as it will be topped with concrete and also reinforced with threaded bar to make it secure
      Heat will not touch the wood base.

      My enquiry is specifically regards heat transfer through the done of the oven. With several inches of insulation will the wooden housing be affected?
