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!

      it is about pompeii oven. second qustions is about mortal for firebrick on dome. want to use mix of sand, clay,ordinary cement,lime (3,1,1,1,1). sorry for english.
      what caracteristic minimal must have rock wool (meen for temperature, heat koeficient etc.). standard rock wool is make for max 750 C working temperature, is it enough? (Rock Mineral Wool | Knauf Insulation) in that link is insulation what i can get here.
      thanks for answer

        I can not answer about the mix for your dome, someone else will need to answer this.
        The rock wool is a very good replacement for "keramic" ceramic insulation. Rock wool for insulation will work very well, I used rock wool and I'm very happy with it.

        Are you building a house for the oven or will it be an igloo?

          Re: 32" dome oven

          Presuming by clay you mean fireclay (either bagged or the dust from cutting your bricks), then yes, the 3:1:1:1 sand:fireclayortland:lime mix works great. Many on this forum (myself included) have built ovens using it with great success.

          As far as dimensions, your walls will be 4.5" thick (assuming you're using standard sized firebricks cut in half), and you want at least 7" on each side for insulation plus finish materials. The vent and counter adds ~18-24" on the front. So, take your desired floor diameter, add 23" (7+7+9) for the side-to-side dimensions of the stand, and ~40" for front-to-back, give or take. Add another 4" on each side for the foundation slab.

            Re: 32" dome oven

            as i say i have already have concrete base about 48"x60". my plan is to put about 32" CORNER pompei oven. as i see in ebook is corner oven with only 5" over the inner diametar of oven. dont know am i say right, but i will post a picture. this 5" is making mess to me.
            anyway i solve first few qustions about using 3,1,1,1,1 mix, and cheaper insulation like rock wool in floor or perlite. i have brick 12.5" x6"x2.75" (25x12x7cm). will cut in half.

              FYI, 25x12x7cm is more like 10"x4.7"x2.75", so you're using something pretty similar to what we use in the states.

              I would note that those diagrams are based on the external width of the oven. So, that includes the walls. I have no idea why the corner oven diagrams only leave a 5" gap on the sides for insulation and finish material.
