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!

    I put screws on the outside of the forms to line up with where the outside of my blocks were going to be. Then I test - stacked some blocks so I could measure the distance from the outside corners to the holes. Then, when I poured the slab, while the concrete was still wet I put strings across the aforementioned screws (which told me the exact outside of my blocks) and measured from there where to push the rebars into the wet concrete.

    The key rebars are the corner, I figure, and those are the easiest to figure out. I put extras along the walls, just in case. I also put one either side of the wood door (hey - rebar is cheap.

    I had to bend a couple rebars once I stacked the blocks, but it worked perfectly.

      If you miss a little you can always nick the block and bend the rebar to get it to align to the core. You are pouring that core full anyway and a nick in the block will not matter.

      Just be sure not to be to the inside or outside to far, that is hard to fix. But easy to determine.
