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!

    Welcome aboard

    Hi Larry,

    Welcome aboard. I think you will enjoy the project -- and love the oven.

    Here is a posting that describes how to calculate the size of your hearth/stand relative to the size of your oven chamber. Take a look, and let us know if that posting works. It's important to get off on the right foot.

      Flash back from the past

      there are many ways to get there. This was the basic design for a 42 incher long ago in a galaxy far away and they have demoted Pluto to less than planet stature :-(. This method is for dry stacking and then filling every other core with concrete and rebar. If you make is oversize (both the foundation and the bloack wall then you have room for decoration and such. This is the minimum.

        Thanks for the welcome and the info. I'm sure that I'll be asking a lot more questions, but this really helps me with this step.
        P.s. I'm having fun!
