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.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Wet FB board

    Even though I covered my "in progress" oven, apparently some rain weeped in under the tarp a few days ago. I have FB board under my firebrick floor and it seems really moist on a couple sides. It's even started showing some mildew on one side. Structurally it seems fine. I have only 2 rows left to finishing the dome and was hoping to add a layer of cement/vermiculite to the counter area this weekend. I have concerns about sealing in this much moisture, though. Should I worry about that? I want and/or need to raise the level of the counter, which I'm also expecting will hold the unmortared floor in place. On top of this counter I want to "tile" it with stone slabs and grout them in. What happens if I take out the first two or four fire bricks in the entry and replace them with the same stone? Is the heat an issue in the entry? I have small gaps in the floor between the oven and the entry, and now realize they maybe should have been bigger. I hope all this makes sense. Sorry if I'm rambling... I need advice...

    1. Wet board isn't a big deal. It will dry out just fine. My board has been soaked, and as long as you don't crush it, the water doesn't hurt it. Scrape off the mildew and let the board dry before you cover it permanently.

    2. Different materials have different expansion and contraction rates when exposed to heat. How hot will your landing bricks get, and how much of an expansion joint will you leave? Right at the edge on the outer arch, the bricks might be nearly ambient temperature, and you won't have much of an issue. It really depends on your entry depth and your vent transition. My oven has a more shallow entry, so I have a cosmetic outer arch that is not physically connected to the landing or vent, but looks like it is.
