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!

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.

  • Cleaning up concrete after a long day of pouring

    More super-novice questions. So you've been mixing and pouring concrete for several hours and you probably have concrete in lots of places that you would like to get cleaned up: gloves, wheelbarrow, hoe, rake, shovel, electric mixer, buckets, trowels, floats, etc.

    You can't just rinse this stuff out on the lawn I imagine, and it must be difficult to put in the trash because by the time you rinse it down, it's 99% water.

    What do people *do* with all that mess? I can easily lay out hundreds of square feet of plastic on the lawn to work on and get the tools clean, I'm not worried about the tools or resultant larger chunks of concrete, I'm mainly curious what to do with barrel-fulls of gray concrete sludgy water.

    I know, this seems like a ridiculous question, but nevertheless, here it is.

    Thanks.

    It won't hurt the lawn if diluted with lots of water.

          Yep, it's basically limestone, your lawn likes it if diluted.

            I dump mine in the horse shoe pit. After it dries, it a pretty easy thing to shovel/rake and dump. Also, if you have extra concrete or mortar, set it on the dirt in shovel sizes (like cow pies), make for an easy clean as well.

              I kept a hole about 2 feet deep,, drained into it and washed over it, Next day it would be absorbed,, filled it in with top soil and dug another hole if i needed it..

              Worked great for me.
