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!

        Is that a cry for help because you live in Canberra

          Hi Cameron and Coffee_hmmm
          welcome both of you on board.
          There have been numerous members who have contributed to the forum from Canberra, such as:
          Badkama, brett the brickie, dawngard, Mahootna, and Muscats.
          There may be more that have put their home as Australia rather than specifically a town r city.
          Do a search of these names within the forum and send each a personal message.

          Cheers.

            LOL cry for help? Big time! Although Canberra is just like a small country town with big city amenities it can be deadly boring sometimes.

            Thanks Neill will do.

            Have been lurking on the forum for a while now but getting serious about the planning. Getting married in October this year, the plan is to start landscaping the backyard at the end of the year and begin the road to pizza heaven.
            Interested in finding local suppliers of materials.

            Cheers Ken.

                            Hi

                            Only just noticed this.

                            I purchased all my refractory gear from Melbourne firebrick in Dandenong. Very good prices but you need to order ahead. Also very close to Exfoliators who supply vemiculite or pearlite at the right price.

                            Best if you can take a one tonner or big trailer down to collect.

                            Come back to me if you want details or further comments.

                            Regards

                            Dave Ly

                              Hey Guys,

                              Been stalking FB for a little while pretty half arsed. Just got some funds for my oven for my 30th Birthday last week so running out of excuses. No trade experience so should be fun
                              Looking at 36" oven...

                              First step: Foundation... Been told that 100mm would be thick enough but plans say more like 150mm.
                              Not sure how much concrete i'll need for 2m x 1.8m slab. Was thinking of easy way out and buy premixed bags from bunnings but now thinking of corkhill Bros and mixing myself due to cost...

                              Any suggestions would be great. Also once slab is done any info on bricks would be good. Do I just go for Canberra reds? maybe firebricks for the cooking surface...

                              Cheers,
