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!

  • detailed build pics Casa2g90?

    Hello all...
    I'm delving into the 2g90, trying to understand all the build steps before I lobby my wife some more

    I've read through FB's installation guide, and while nice with pics etc, I find I have a lot of questions still. Can someone point me to any threads on this forum that document their 2g build in detail, e.g. lots of pictures?

    thanks for any info, I'm excited to start getting it all together!

    ps: can I save shipping with local pickup (Marina not too far from here), anyone heard?

      ya, you can save a ton of cash. I ordered a g2100, live in florida and paid 1000 bucks for delivery. Of which UPS freight bent a modular frame 2 seperate times, which pushed my project back a month. Great idea to pick it up yourself my friend

        The information you get with the purchase get's you in the ballpark. What I really dig about my project is the creativity. You really get the opprotunity to let the mind juice flow. As I work through my build, it simply evolves, changes from my origional design and always suprises me on my abilities to design and change as I go. Just stay with FB's foundation instructions. Read them several times and get comfortable with them before starting. It can turn into a money pit, so think in through and be creative. Your options are wide and expancive. Have fun my friend, you'll love the opprotunity and satisfaction it provides

          thanks... actually my oven is done, but not fully finished (aesthetically), I've fired it about 5 times, after the curing cycle. It needs finish layer of stucco and a landing and eventually probably some porcelain tile vs mosaic. Its working great! It gets up to heat in about 50-70minutes, with the dome at 900 or so. I'm learning how to make pizza now... really I should be doing it daily for a while to get my chops, but my wife rebels a bit even weekly. No biggie, lots of fun.

          Now, when I get on my other computer I can show my build pics!

            Nice to hear your almost done. you actually are right at the same place as I. I Have to do my last layer of stucco over the whole oven. I have quite a bit of deco stone veneer work to do on the stand and some other stone work to finish it all up. It's part of a much larger patio project. I have not cured the oven as of yet. I think I will start that tomorrow. Any tips to share? Have you gotten any cracks from the curing? I'm a Pastry Chef of 26 years. actually lived in San Francisco for 18 years. So i'm very familar with your neck of the woods. I taught wood fired oven bread classes for a company not far from FB, Mugnaini, many years back. Bread is a big passion of mine. If I can share any tips, just shake my cage. Would love to see some pictures of your build. I am putting together an album myself that i will post it soon.

            Be well Ben!
