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!

  • Shopping for parts

    Hey guys and gals,

    I am now shopping for the parts to build my the pompeii 41inch oven and have got quotes for all the parts and it totals about $1200 Australian dollors. My question is around the cal sil boards.

    I have been advised these boards break down if they get wet, anyone shed some light on this subject. How does someone go about keeping them dry while building the oven. I am guessing the oven will need to be covered at every instant.

        Thanks anyway.

        Guess I will keep looking on the net for info on these boards.

        All I have been told is that they break down into a powder if they get wet yet looking at some of the posts on here it is recommended to lay the boards on a freshly laid slab so I am very confused at the moment.

          Imran,

          I have no practical experience with these boards but I do know there are several manufacturers and just as many different compositions of materials used in them. That said, I know ken524 had problems with the brand he used due to breakdown from over exposure to water.
          I know the boards that James sells in the FB store have no issues...James went to great lengths to find a reasonably priced board with the right composition. The ALL tend to absorb water better than a sponge, some can breakdown, others merely need to dry out with no ill effects.
          Hopefully someone who has either researched them extensively or has used them will chime in with what they know......hang in there, someone will help set you straight.
