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!

  • 42 pompeii with 60x60 Foundation

    I had a 12ftx24ft pad poured with a 60inx60in pad sticking out from the side. Now I am about to start the cinder blocks, but since I am building a 42" oven, I think according to the directions, that my stand and insulating hearth may not be wide enough. I plan on double or triple wrapping the dome with fb blanket, and hopefully won't use any vermiculite. So, if I did a 60x60 stand and hearth, with no cantilevering, then , would I have enough room for the oven, insulation and the outer housing, Or, should I build it wider using cantilevering.


    Thanks

    42 inch ID, plus 9 inch double wall, plus 4 inch minimum double blanket thickness, plus one inch minimum double cladding equals 56, so it can be done. Don't forget you need another 9-12 inches in the front for the landing/vent. So depending on what you want to do to cover your dome, you should be okay if you go with a corner entry, or a small cantelver in front.

      Thermo,

      If you are planning an outside enclosure there is still plenty of room for metal studs on either side of the widest pint with room to have the hardibacker outside of that at the very edge. This would also allow for a lot more insulation around the oven with a fair amount of thickness of insulation jammed between the oven and the hardibacker at the narrowest spots on the base...
