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!

  • One more insulation Question

    Well I have located some ceramic blanket - and plan to put on 2 - 2" layers for a total of 4" of blanket. My dome will be in a water tight enclosure. Masonry with a wood shake roof over it.

    Do I need to cover this with perlcrete?

    If not, what holds the blanket in place?

    Thanks again for your assistance.
    Thanks,

    GT

    Re: One more insulation Question

    I think if you truly have 4" of blanket you shouldn't need any other insulation.

    I"m assuming you're enclosing the dome/blanked in something. If so I would just use chicken wire to keep the blanket it place. I was surpised how well my blanket stayed in place. I used some wire to hold it down in a few places then wrapped in chicken wire (before I applied perlcrete). Given the "properties" of the blanket I would be sure it's not exposed to the outside/food in anyway.

    Hope this helps.

        If you are enclosing it in a masonry "house", then you could also fill the void with loose vermiculite...it is cheap and ver effective. You probably don't need to do it with 4" of blanket but it cannot hurt...
