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!

  • Fire brick quantities for a Newbie

    Hi guys,

    Have decided to build myself a a 42" Pompeii oven and am putting together an order list and would like to roughly know how many bricks to order. I'm looking at 230 x 114 x 65mm bricks. The pdf estimates 65 bricks for the oven floor, 140 for the oven and 30 ish for the arch. 230 full bricks in total. Does this sound about right? Also was thinking of using a 255mm sliding mite saw with a diamond boade for cutting the bricks and soaking the bricks in water before hand. Does anyone else have any other techniques that a proficient DIY'r could use. Any advice would be gratefully received. Olly
