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!

    Well I am hoping to get to the planning stages of my oven. Due to the amount of time we plan on living in our current house and the limited space along with my work schedule, I plan on building the dome out of refractory cement. This is something i can cast in the winter months when I am not working. Now i have called around to quite a few places only to get 2 quotes on material. I am in no way an expert so i was hoping someone could tell me if either of these are what i am looking for. He said the price is quite negotiable depending on the amount i need.

    this is the correct product, but try some alternative suppliers. The cement is calcium aluminate, the product you show is a mixture of cement and aggregate premixed so you just need water.Don't cut it by adding any other aggregate or it won't be strong enough.Most cartable refractories also include some very fine natural fibres which burn away during firing leaving tiny "pipes" which water vapor can escape from.

      The stuff is not cheap at $105/ 25 Kg I 'd be using the cheaper one. You won't be firing anywhere near 1427 C anyway.
