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.

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!

  • slipped brick in vent arch

    Hi,

    After about 20 cooking sessions a brick in the vent arch slipped. I noticed small mortar cracks open on heating, but then last night the brick moved a lot. I pushed it back in this morning.

    What is the fix here? Do I make a tapered brick out of two bricks to fill the space more fully?

    I have hardibacker screwed to the gabled house framing and 3 " of FB blanket over the vent arch, but all is removable and the arch is accessable.

    (I can't find bulk vermiculite so I haven't finished the enclosure).

    thanks in advance, Don

    Hi Don,
    several option are available, but to retain the balance appearance of your facade, I'd drill a coupe of holes up through the depth of the brick and screw it to the ones above it. You can sink the bolt/fastener below the surface and mortar up the evidence.
    You could make up a tapered brick, even slightly taper the loose brick and re-mortar it back in place with a slightly wider joint OR
    using high temperature silicone, glue it in place (the type that model car racers use on their exhausts that resist up to around 960˚F.

    Cheers.
