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!

  • Wet insulation under the stove

    I have recently started to work on my oven again and, apparently, a rub hole had formed in my tarp and rain got in, now the insulation under the floor is wet...Just keep building and burning and leave a place for the steam to go? Put a heat source under the slab in the wood box hole? The insulation board underneath is 2" thick...Ideas? thanks

    Re: Wet insulation under the stove

    Forget doing pizza and just fire it up gently, cooking and baking with the retained heat. It will dry. A hand held to the outside should indicate if the insulation space between the inner and outer shells is moist. Hot if it's moist, cosy warm if it's dry.The underfloor moisture is harder to get rid of and more difficult to tell when it's dry, because the supporting slab it sits on is way thicker than the outer shell. I had thought of using a garden moisture meter in the insulation spaces, but probably more trouble than it's worth.

        Who cares? If it means more WFO users and better ovens, then isn't everyone a winner?

            Yes, until they realized I had not been trying to sell through the forum. I inadvertently left my website on the profile page, like many others.
            I can't see any indication that Thickstrings is making more than one oven.
