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!

  • filling the blocks on top the angle iron of the stand

    Maybe I'm missing something in the plans. I've built the stand and placed my blocks over the angle iron on the front of the stand. How will I fill these blocks on the angle iron with concrete or keep the concrete from the hearth from falling through the holes in the block? Do I place masonry board over or under them? Thanks, K

    I used a scrap or 1x6 cut just a bit shorter than the opening, then propped it up with a couple of 2x4 scraps - on the underside. Then filled them when I poured the other block cores. After it set, I just knocked out the props and the 1x6 fell to the ground - leaving a relatively smooth underside to the opening.

      Thanks. I looked at other people's pictures and saw one that had something propped up under there like you described. That's what I'll do. K

        I just finished pouring the hearth yesterday and I used the empty cement bags to fill in these areas. Worked a treat and reduced the amount of cleaning up as well.
        You can't see the bags but you can always pull them out afterwards if the thought of them bugs you.
