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!

  • New Oven Planning

    I really want a Pizza Oven. I do not have a large backyard so a Large oven with a big foot print just wont fit. I have some fire brick that came from a BBQ that I would like to use. The bricks say Jay Bee Light on them, they measure 2 1/2" thick 4 1/2" wide and 9" long. Im thinking to get started I will just dry stack them and see how it goes and later on improve the design. Does any one have experience with these bricks ?

    I don't know anything about the bricks - but based on a quick search I found this link, and it sounds like they are old firebricks from pre WW2.

    Light probably refers to low-duty.

    They should be fine for a pizza oven if they're similar to the brick pictured in the site I linked

    Search around the forums for ovens built using your drystack idea. IIRC, there is a thread called "oven in three hours" or something similar where the poster has built a dry-stacked oven.
