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!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena
For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.
Is that a natural fiber Tampico or horse hair? I wouldn't use that to brush coals and ash before before pizza, its going to burst into flames. I scorched both of my copper bristle wood brushes from FB. No problems with the bristles, just the wooden heads. actually caught the 1st one on fire playing around trying to push all of the ash aside. I learned my lesson, at $35 a pop, you have to be quick and not play around.
brickie if that wears out ...i went to bunning and got a normal shed broom that looked very similar to the broom you have and all i have done is cut the handle off and made a bracket to lay the handle flat on the broom head from memory it cost me under $20 for the broom
it works a treat and is stiff enough to shift the ash off the brick
i have been using it for nearly a year and it hasnt caught fire yet
Shipping is just flat expensive anywhere. I have problems when shipping costs more then the stuff I want to buy and that is within the continental US. To ship overseas the costs and hassles greatly increase.
But even within the USA one business to the next have a great variance of price ranges for shipping.
Guess that's one of the pitfalls with online shopping.
My experiences with postage from the US is wide and varied, Amazon is the best, usually under $20, often nearer $12 but other well over $100 for only a small parcel.
Trying to buy from US ebay sellers who refuse to post outside of the US is just a joke and they deserve to get less than the product could sell for. It's not hard to write an Australian address on the label and include the cost of postage with the goods, where's there a problem?
Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!
The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know
