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!

  • HELP - What type of Castable for Vent?

    My brick dealer is placing an order and can add some castable material from the manufacturer on the order. My question is what castable should I buy for my vent...

    Needs to hold 8-9 feet of duravent
    Will have to cure in place

    I was thinking of the following:
    KS-4 Plus
    PacoCast
    Heat Cast - 40 (same company that makes Heat Stop)

    Fast replies would be appreciated...

    Thanks

    I used KS-4, cast in place, and cured in place. KS-4 is very solid and easy to work with. No problems. I would not only use it again, but would proabably cast my entry and event in one piece if I were to do another one.

    Don't forget the stainless needles.

    I posted a couple of picts a while ago. Search vent casting and you should find them.
