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!

  • Ev's 42" Pompeii in Lancaster Co., Pa.

    Hi folks. I started my build back in May using the Pompeii oven plans from this site. It's just a free-standing oven build. Nothing fancy. Not part of a bigger outdoor kitchen. At least not yet. I can always expand later.
    I've never laid a brick before this project but I have lots of experience in construction doing drywall and metal framing. I've had a great time so far. I know it's not perfect and I probably drank too many beers along the way, but I believe it'll be just fine when it's done.
    The oven is not yet complete but I have lots of photos from along the way. I'll post a few every few days or so until I get caught up.

    I drew the basic oven footprint on a piece of drywall, cut it out and used it as a template to get started.

      A bit more. The last one shows my canopy after a nasty storm. I propped it up and it's still usable, but it's never going back in it's bag again.

        Ev,

        Looks really good!

        My dad is originally from Trappe, PA (near Pottstown). Beautiful country up that way.

        Love the pic of your EZ-Up. I had a storm turn mine into spaghetti a few weeks ago. Tried to make it stand up, but couldn't. Its at the dump now...Keep the pics coming!

            Hi acbova. Yeah, York's not far at all. I'm actually in Reamstown, near Denver.(Pa.)
            I got my block and brick from Terre Hill concrete, Heatstop 50 from both New Holland concrete and Galantino Supply which is also a Forno Bravo dealer. I also got my insulation blanket, fire clay and some vermiculite from Galantino as well. I used Eagle concrete to pour the foundation and hearth slab. They have metered trucks and they're only about a half mile from me.

                              Very nice looking transition from the arch!! Also, I like the occasional red brick... Kind of a surprise when the dome clears....
