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!

  • terminology around angles and the IT cradle

    I am getting myself a little confused about the terminology used around the angles. I've attached a quick and dirty diagram showing what I'm talking about. Feel free to tell me the terms I should be using in place of the ones that I have labelled in the picture

    If I am building an oven with the minimum of mortar each brick will have four cut faces. I suspect but I don't know for sure! that the majority of the calculations assume that you've "only" cut the two ends.

    If this assumption is correct
    1) is there a calculator that takes into account what I have termed (probably incorrectly) the taper
    2) would I need to adjust the design of the IT to match the taper angle in the cradle bit that supports the brick - this seems logical however I haven't seen anyone do it so it makes me worried that I'm wrong

    You can call the angles what ever you want as its you who is working with them.
    The English language was invented by people who couldnt spell.

      nice one bricky - however getting to grips with all this stuff it helps if I'm talking the same language as other people so that I can understand which angle is "bevel" etc otherwise I could end up with a very odd shaped oven
