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!

  • Wet Insulating Blanket

    I am in the late stages of a Casa 2G100 build. My tarp leaked and my insulating blanket got wet. I currently have 3 layers covered in chicken wire awaiting stucco. Hard to tell exactly how wet it got. It wasn't thoroughly soaked, but took on a bunch of water.

    Do I have to replace it? How can I tell if it's OK?

    If its ceramic blanket itll be fine, maybe you could fire up the oven to dry it?
    Fire it on low, not high.

      I'd try to let it dry out before you cover it as best as possible.

          Brickie is correct, just fire the oven on low for a few hours to get the heat through the refractory - just think of this being an extended low temperature cure. The just be sure not to have anything on top of the insulation so that the steam has a free flow You will want to do this on a clear day with low humidity (a relative term on the East Coast) to maximize your efforts.

          Best o luck
