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.

  • Possible tip for uneven ceramic board surfaces

    Hello, I snooped around my local steel yard, and found a piece of stainless steel sheet from the end of a coil, which was sold as scrap. For $30 I got a piece big enough to lay on the ceramic board as part of the permanent oven cooking floor, and it immediately made it easier to level the bricks. It's 20 gauge, so I hope there's no problem, as this sheet has not been stress relieved. I'll let you know if it pops my oven apart with the first high temp firing!

    With no experience yet with ovens, I'm curious and have to ask, will that plate of steel not wick the heat from your oven floor?

    I would have a shot at the answer, if I had the appropriate question.

      Yeah, I think the SS sheet will conduct heat much faster than the fire brick, but the sheet is directly on the FB board insulation, and will be surrounded by the ceramic blanket. So, theoretically at equilibrium, the heat loss should be no worse than brick alone; that is, at no point is the sheet exposed to air.

        Eric.

        The plate will expand much more than the fire bricks when hot. It may offset some of your bricks, but hopefully there is not enough friction between the plate and the bricks. Remember not to restrict the plate expansion along its perimeter!
