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!

  • Got the bricks and ready to go again

    I have been renovating our investment rental house and needed to get some appropriate bricks to re-brick the demolished fireplace in the lounge room, (the original owner had it removed and replaced wit an oil heater).
    No firebricks available so I found 280 high fired (at 1200˚C) clay pavers, 70mm thick and collected them this afternoon. The fire will be in a specially constructed steel grille so I don't expect any degridation of the bricks.
    I will use around 50 in the fireplace leaving around 200+ for my next oven. I might even build one for the new tenants.

    Neill, I have said it before. You are a man after my own heart. ALWAYS have a project going.
    Finishing up nearly 500 sq. of floor tile for my daughter, then FINALLY on to my WFO waterproofing renovation (only about 2 months behind schedule due the "other projects").

      RT,
      I know what it is to be busy. I now have almost finished the investment house, painting and re decorating throughout. It is now 12:15am and I just got home. Another full day tomorrow and ready for the new tenants. Brick paving Sat and Sunday, tiling and refit of a laundry trough Monday (although it is a public holiday here) and the list goes on and on.
      I downloaded the plans for a Rumsford open fireplace last night as I need to redo the gutted open fireplace in the house. The brickie lecturer that was building Hendo's oven will be called upon to see that I get it right.
      Right now, I am absolutely buggered, so a hot soak in the bath to wash away all those aches and pains, and a few hours sleep should see me through.
      Will keep you posted.
