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!

  • oven exterior waterproofing

    Now that I got the hearth fixed, I need to do something about the outside!

    This oven is going to sit outside of my home, for right now its in the garage and I wheel it outside when I want to use it!

    Is there any way I can remove the insulation from it and make it water proof? Or am I better off just building a little house around the whole thing?

    Ideas anyone? The oven is sitting outside my home now with a piece of plywood on it and a tarp over it. Looks a little trashy! Thanks!!

      Tin sides, what about a simple tin roof, you could use metal Studs as others have used for the trusses and quickly and easily put a metal roof over it.

      If you want to get fancy it might even be cone shaped like the top of an Iowa corn silo.

        If I were to have my friend who is a mason brick the outside, would that be suitable as outdoor protection? That way I could retain the dome shape. Would it be ok for me to remove the insulation if I were to do this?

          Brick is not an insulator and you want insulation, also just doing brick will allow water to pass through and your oven will get wet, in the winter you may experience melting of snow into your brickwork and that will cause problems also. The Midwest is not a great place for a dome exterior unless covered by some type of roof.

          Another problem is the weight of the bricks, can your base handle the load?

            That was just the answer I was (or wasn't) looking for! Thanks! I will see what I can come up with for an enclosure.
