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.

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!

  • oven floor insulation with rockwool

    Hi,
    I would like to use a rockwool hard board under the floor of the oven for insulation, not sure if it can withstand the heat cycels and weight of the oven.
    the plan is to use it insted of the ceramik board.
    what do you think?

      Re: oven floor insulation with rockwool

      Hi Al,
      The board is with density of 80kg\m and 5 cm thick.
      Yesterday I did a "test" for the board and placed on it the floor tiels to see hwo it will behave with the weight. it was like a hard coshion, so im not sure if it will be possible to level the floor.
      Still remains the major issue - that im not sure if it will withstand the weight and will not collapse or crumble during time.

      That is why i'm thinking of changing my original plan and use a vermiculite concrete as the insulation layr under the floor. ( as I see is recomended everywhere)

      since this is a change of plans I will have room for only 6.5 cm of the vermiculite concrete layer.
      1. do you think it will be strong enogh in that thickness?
      2. do you think it will be a good inulation ?

      Thanks.

        If there is any doubt I wouldnt use it, it takes a lot of work to build an oven twice.
