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!

    Re: Indispensiable tool?

    The IT needs to be specific to the dimensions of your oven, so you may want to make.

    But they are super easy to make. Cheesesteak has one of the simplest, cheapest approaches to this on his thread

    Get a strap-type door hinge, a piece of 2" x ~ 3/8" x ~ 24" hardwood, and a simpson strongtie bracket. Put that together with some hardware and you've got yourself an indispensible tool

      Unless you want to take 3 or 4 times as long to build your oven or to have it 'perfectly semi-spherical', give them a miss and just use a quadrant (half a semicircular) plywood pattern as the bricks will stick with the home brew right up to the last 3 courses.
      You can easily build the dome in 2 easy days that way.
      I completed Hendo's oven (the originator of the Indespensible tool) after he died. My oven was built in a couple of week-ends whereas Hendo's took 18 months and he had a bricklaying instructor do his brickwork. You might like to check out both our builds to get some ideas/suggestions to make the job easier.
      Cheers.

        Not all of us will complete the oven in the same amount of time per method used. Do compare the builds as nissanneil suggests but compare several other builds also, then make your game plan.
