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!

  • Ryan's 42

    Here are some photos. My wife finally let me borrow the camera. Daylight savings means it is dark at 4:45pm here! I will take more photos on Saturday. Next time I do this I will buy a dome from Forno Bravo for sure. This has been harder than anticipated. I was able to work on the oven in the dark for 2 hours until all the dogs in the neighborhood started barking when I would fire up the saw for some cuts!

    Thanks,

    Ryan

        Looks good Ryan.

        Do you have any pictures specific to how you handled the work with the angle iron at the oven door. I'm planning to do a post in the tips/techniques forum so that others can see several different examples of how to attack this situation.

          Hi Ryan,

          You're right about at that point where you do start wondering what you got yourself into but it's looking good and you WILL reach the end - hang in there!

            Thanks Sarah.

            Les,

            I will look for some photos to show how I linked the angle iron. I will take some close ups as well.

            Thanks,

            Ryan

                Re: Ryan's 42

                Thanks Drew. I thought that all day yesterday as I worked onthe oven from 8am to 4pm until I ran out of Heat Stop. As the dome gets closer and closer to completion I get more and more excited. I am casting the vent this coming week. I heard that if you put steel needles in the castable it helps to prevent cracking. Have you heard of this?

                Thanks,

                Ryan

                  I didn't hear that about the steel needles. My recently casted vent is cracking.

                    You get the stainless steel needles from the same place you got the refractory material. I've not used them myself, but I'm told they are called needles for a reason - be careful.

                      I finished the dome tonight! We had an unusual heat surge to 76 today so I came home early from work and finished the dome! I will add photos tomorrow.

                      Thanks,

                      Ryan
