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!

  • Scrap Insulation Board - reuse/recycle?

    I've cut out my FB insulation boards and have some big scraps left over. I noticed some threads of larger ovens who felt they were a little short with using 3 full FB boards. If anybody is in that boat, I'd be more than willing to ship out my scraps. Otherwise, does anyone know what the best way to recycle or dispose of this stuff properly?

    All boxed up and ready to ship out.

    Did you save enough to make a door ?

      Re: Scrap Insulation Board - reuse/recycle?

      I agree, definitely save enough for a door (or two) If no one takes you up on your generous offer, consider using it to insulate your flue. I used a few small pieces cut in half through the thickness (with a hand ripsaw) around the upper part of the flue where I ran out of insulation blanket. The rest of the scraps just got thrown in with the loose vermiculite fill insulation. So I know where to find some if I ever need it, I didn't want to just throw it away.

        I was going to go with a stainless flue.

        I'm not sure what I'm doing for the door, but I'm leaning toward a thinner door and not having to encapsulate this ceramic foam. Has anyone used this in a door sandwich?

        Its already boxed and I'm willing to ship it. The FB forum users have been more than generous with their time that I figure if someone can make use of it - all the better.
