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!

  • Bottom of oven

    How hot or warm can I expect the bottom of the oven when there is 2" of FB board. Enough to burn something or someone that happens to put there hand under it? Reason I'm asking is because I'm building a wood platform that will
    Have a layer of 1/2" non combustible glass roc board covering 1/2" plywood and 2x4 cross pieces. Would the heat be enough to burn the wood?

      Re: Bottom of oven

      Why don't you contact FB directly? I would imagine that the oven floor would be insulated sufficiently to prevent burning your wood. Perhaps you could use a different (non combustible ) material for the platform. I recently saw an oven that had two layers of 2" clay pagers for a floor sitting on roofing iron, but no insulation under it. The timber beam supporting the oven was badly charred and partly burnt away. I couldn't see a way to fix it. I think it is a demolition solution and start again.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Hello,

        You should not use wood anywhere in the stand. It can sag and warp and you should not use anything combustible. Concrete is easy and inexpensive, or you can have a metal stand fabricated.

        Please let us know if you have any other questions.

        Thanks,
        Heidi FB
