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: 36" oven

    One way to minimize the footprint is to use thin material to enclose the dome. You can also place your entry on the corner, and utilize that corner space. You might even flatten the lower courses of the dome on the outside where it reaches the corner. Blanket is twice as effective an insulator than vermiculite concrete. You don't want to eliminate insulation on the side: that's really important.

      Agree with dmun. 36 inch ID oven plus 9 inches to the external surface of the brick, plus 4 - 6 inches (ceramic blanket 2 -3 inches deep) for insulation puts you at 50ish inches. Then you add your finish material. Minimum another two inches for the width of the base. A 52 - 54 inch wide base sounds about right for a 36 inch oven.
