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!

          Re: 42" Oven

          starting on the arch openings and noticed that there are all sorts of different sizes. Since I'm doing a 42" oven (Tuscan style - higher dome), should I start the arch after my fourth brick on the sides, going up to the height of 12.5"? I noticed lots of people doing it after the third brick, but that starts at 7.5" and looks like it arches up another 2-3", so I'm assuming they're doing the lower domed ovens? Thanks for any help...

            I started at the third brick with an opening of 12.5 inches. It gives me plenty of room to cook and gives the arch sufficient strength. My oven it 42 inches and the dome height is 21 (a little less due to the flatness of the plug). Hope this helps.

              Fourth course down...also started the base for the arches. Perfect weather for building.

                  Looking great so far.

                  Good to see you have taken the plunge and rebated your Openning/Inner arch.

                  It is fairly complex but worth the time spent

                  Cheers
                  John

                    Hey John,
                    Thanks. Have a question. What do rebating my opening/inner arch refer to?

                      I'm thinking about using splits on my inner arch. Has anyone else tried using splits? I was thinking it could help with smaller joints.

                          Splits vertically would work well.

                            Hi Guys

                            Should have used the correct terminology, I meant reveal.

                            I use to be a cabinet maker hence the use of Rebating

                              Just finished my first arch...pain in the boodie building the form but it worked out pretty well...I'll take the grinder to it when it hardens and smooth out the rough edges. I think I'm glad I used the splits.

                              I was starting on the next couple of courses when it started hailing on me...it's mid-June.
