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!

    Re: cast lintel question......

    Well first off I am no expert and have only used one brand. OK disclaimer out of the way.

    I used KS-4 reinforced with stainless needles to cast a vent transition. Found it easy and forgiving to work with and very dense and hard when set. I have only 5 high temp firings to date, but it is holding up fine, looks good as new.

    Another used a different product to cast the entire oven. Can find that here;

    If you are going to cast, you might think about casting more than the lintel. Maybe lintel and vent. If I were to do mine again, I would cast the arch opening and vent in one piece.
