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

Hello,

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.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

  • Applying stucco

    Hi folks,

    It is the second season for our pizza oven and outdoor kitchen project. This is the summer of the facades! I am considering putting stucco over the existing backer board that frames the oven and have some questions.

    A bit of background:

    The lower portion is going to be stone over the concrete block (I've been gathering ledge stone in the hills above Clark Fork, Idaho for years) and will start this work next week (if it doesn't snow again).

    The oven itself is framed with steel studs and backer board and is hexagonal in shape. When the snow came off this spring I put on a conical cedar shake roof (I am going to have a pavilion over the top of the entire kitchen area and will be extending the chimney through the roof, so I am not worrying about sparks igniting the cedar). A picture is attached.

    I think that doing the oven facade in stone will be a bit "too much" visually and am considering completing the oven facade in stucco. So what are the steps? Do I need waterproof the backer board? And how about putting down wire mesh?

    Any and all advice is welcome!

    Good Roads

    Acrylic stucco uses fiberglass mesh. Traditional cementitious stucco uses metal mesh.

        Re: Applying stucco

        I'm real impressed with th thoroughness of your construction. I am in the finishing stages of my own corner oven construction (a modular Casa2G100 oven), and used cultured stone for the base, and I am just about to stucco the surround. I plan to add color by picking out some rustic tile, and then finish it with a tinted stucco.

        I used metal lath over the cement board surround, and then used standard mortar to create a scratch coat. That's where I'm at right now... I'll try to follow your progress too!
