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!

  • squirting fire mortar into some cracks/voids

    so, it has been a couple of years since my build was completed. My buddy and I have been looking at some of the joints inside and have decided that I will have to climb in soon enough and squirt something in, or use a pointing tool and mush some stuff in what appears to be a void or crack. Basically, a place or two that looks like it really needs it.

    We have Atlantic Firebrick just north of town, that is where I got the more high tech supplies for my build, like the insulation, and the floor tiles. I did notice that they had other products like what I think I need for this job, but seem to have a memory of a small tub being like $60 or $120. I don't have any materials left from two years ago, so I guess I will have to let the wallet bleed a little.

    any thoughts?

    See if you can find a product called "Fire-pak" it is a wet refractory in a caulk tube, should run 10-12 bucks.

      I did a web search for the product you mention, but to no avail (do you have a link?). This stuff looks pretty good, and it seems to be more readily available: Fireplace mortar
