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!

  • rebar cage for thew dome

    Hello,hello.
    Did everyone built a cage over the dome???? I see many guys using chicken
    wire over the insulation blanket only, is the rebar recommended for the vault
    type only?
    If I were to build one do I have to go 1/2" or I can get away with the pencil type net rebar????
    Well, as usual thanks to all of you who take the time to answer this newbie's
    questions.

    Re: rebar cage for thew dome

    Hi Masako,

    I used chicken wire to hold the insulation in place and installed a 'stucco' coat directly on top of the insulation. I did not use rebar in my installation.

    The results are; the oven works great; the 'stucco' has lots of spider web cracks through out the stucco (I think this is more a problem of using and incorrect 'stucco' product); and the structure is strong and stable.

    I have seen pictures here on the Forno Bravo site that show people using the rebar.

    So I think this is another situation where either answer is correct, if you want to use rebar, your structure will be stronger, but you can build the oven without the rebar and expect a great performing oven...

    Sorry this is not a direct 'yes' or 'no' response...

      I used 3/8" because I could not find the pencil rebar. If it's available - use it, it will make life a lot easier.
