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!

    Okay I laid my block and the stand is finished, looks real good the only thing is the angel iron is going to be a little problem if I decide not to brick the front I will have to put some wire mesh and then stucco over it.
    I started at 9am was finished by 330. I will frame and pour the hearth this week end, no straps 2x8's framed around the edge and supported with 2x4 and a couple of 1x,s on an angle bracing the top of the form will be pleanty also not to wet of a mix. will let you know how it goes.

    Did you grind back your blocks to that the angle iron sits flush with the front of the block fascade? Even if you didn't you can (as you noted) always find a way to make your decorative finish hide whatever goes on with your stand.

    Can you forward any photos? Those are always fun, and informative for everyone.
