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!

  • Stucco on my 2G90, and then a roof later on?

    I'm in the process of putting together my Casa2G90, and I haven't quite made up my mind what the final enclosure is going to look like. If I decide to go with a stucco finish, and then change my mind later and decide to enclose it using metal studs and a roof- is that going to cause problems?

    Thanks!

    It shouldn't, as long as you have enough room in the slab to accommodate that.

      Remember that stucco's are at best "water resistant" not "water proof".

      Since you are in Everett, Washington, I would plan to tarp it during the rainy season.

        That's a good point about the stucco- maybe I'll go with a roofed enclosure from the start. I still have a couple more months of dry season left thankfully!

          The stucco should cause no problems with building an enclosure around the oven later and roofing it. I am going to do that for I find I get a wet slab during wet periods. Keeping water OFF of the oven is the simplest solution. You can waterproof the stucco or paint it to help but... I doubt that in Everett you can keep it dry unless you put a roof over it!

            You can also think about finishing it in some kind of stone? but I think Stucco will work just great. During those times of wet weather you can do a mini cure and burn up some of the moisture that may surface inside the oven. Good Luck and have fun!!
