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!

  • Insulation base -AUS

    Hi all from Aus

    My mate gave me a pizza oven and floor bricks/tiles (well almost a oven - see pic)
    After doing some research I know I need to cover the oven with ceramic insulation blanket then chicken wire to hold it down and render with the proper heat resistant cement etc.

    I have no place to put it permanently at the moment, so I though I would mount it on a solid wooden stand with a 15mm to 20mm (1/2" to 3/4" ) thick
    compressed fibre cement sheeting eg James Hardie product.

    I would the cement the flloor bricks/tiles with the same cement as the render finish.

    Has anyne done this ?

    Will this have sufficient insulation properties? Any help welcome

    Cheers

    Graeme

    Re: Insulation base -AUS

    Hi Graeme and I welcome yet another Aussie to the forum.
    If we keep this up, we will take over the forum.
    Where abouts in this wonderful wide land are you located?
    I wish I had mates like yours to give away ovens which would cost a couple of thousand dollars, I would make a mobile one and maybe some pocket money.

    Be aware that the 'bricks' that you put in your base or hearth are heat absorbers and not insulating.
    You might consider mounting it on a moveable base rather than try to find a permanent location for it, but it will need to be fairly substantial to carry the weight and the vibration when moving it.
    By all means, use your compressed cement sheet for the base but reinforce it, then put 3" (75mmto us metricated builders) vermiculite cement and then lay your firebricks or fired clay bricks/pavers if preferred on top of this. Then you can put your oven dome and chimney void on top of that. You the use eithe a ceramic blanket and or more vermiculite cement insulation over that. All that is then required is to waterproof it with either a render or cover built over it but you then lose the dome look.
    There is a host of information within the forum, do a little more reading and include a search for specific details.
    You might also like to read my build which covers all these points but it is a brick Pompeii rather than a prefabricated oven.

    Cheers.
