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!

    I'm the one who used Greenpatch 421 for the dome mortar, which was not the mortar of choice according to this forum. I have been assured by the place I bought it, (many times over) that it is great stuff, and used all the time for pizza ovens, and will be fine. It all looks really good so far, however on the outside of the dome the mortar looks like a bad case of scabies. Should I now cover this peely stuff with refmix? Would that help anything, and ease my mind? I'm having an anxiety attack over this! My husband tells me, "If it doesn't work, we'll have a really cute structure to look at." I want "cute," but I also want it to work.

    my only thought is that as long as the greenpatch is completely dry,,,, I dont think it could hurt to "stucco" it with refmix or heat stop, I certainly would call the manufacturer of greenpatch and ask if they have a tech department to answer your concerns.....

      The outside of the dome? You won't see the outside of the dome once you insulate.
      I don't see any reason it won't work: there are lots of funny looking ovens out there that work like champs.
