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!

  • Cast Segmented refactory mobile oven build

    Well at last I have made time to start the installation of the oven into an old horse trailer, The oven is segmented and the concrete is 3" deep all over, The oven sits on 3 1/2" Vermiculite concrete which in turn sits on 2"+ Strong concrete.(all joints are sealed with fire cement) Tomorrow I shall start the insulation process. I shall secure the oven using steel rope, anchors and turnbuckles. Over this shall be chicken wire (Allready cast with the first slab) and then ceramic blanket followed by Vermiculite /cement and finally a sand/cement render. Over all this I shall cover the oven with a box made of commercial insulation (Kingspan) for total insulation.

    I actually don't know what I will do with the trailer as for me the enjoyment is the building of the oven,

        Very nice! What type of cement did yo use? Can you describe how you constructed the mould?

          Thank you. I used refractory concrete 1400, the mould was made from plywood, plastic, sand and plaster, (I wouldn't use plaster again).

            Wood doesn't last well as a mould either.it's ok for two or three, but if you plan on doing more fiberglass is a better lasting material. Even fiberglass needs repair maintenance about every tenth casting.
