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!

  • skamolex question

    i'm trying to install some super isol on an existing oven that is constantly in use. i tried to glue the board in place, but the underside of the hearth is quite warm/hot and the glue doesn't seem to bond. any suggestions?

    i tried with another piece of board and it seems like the glue bonds to the underside of the oven, but not to the super isol itself. it bonds, but not particularly well. would some sort of mortar work?

    Hi Peter,
    I can picture what you are trying to do. I have never tried to glue the SuperIsol to the bottom of anything, so I don't have any experience with how Skamolexx would bond.

    I don't think mortar would do it.

    Have you tried bracing the SuperIsol in place with a piece of wood, to give the glue a long time to set and bond? A long time.

    Could you possibly leave a brace there permanently?

    Meanwhile, I will contact the producer and see what they say. More to come.

      Glue

      Peter,

      Two products might be more efficient. In my masonry business, we use a glue called BondLoc for gluing stone where mortar is not an option. Also, there are several brands of masonry glue used for pavers, as in interlock manufactured "stone" applications. I'd definitely brace the insulation board in place until the glue sets.
