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!

    Hi Guys & Girls

    I Am considering a move to Perth this year (in fact it's almost a certainty) and it's bound to happen sooner rather than later.

    2 Questions however.

    1. I have already got all the bricks etc for a 42" oven - should i ship them over with the rest of the stuff (heaps of relocating the bricks onto pallets etc) versus cost, time etc?
    2. Or should i sell them here and then buy locally if possible?

    Anyone in Perth care to comment?
    Or Hobart who wants to buy?

    Cheers

    Steve

    Definitely not worth shipping them over. I bought 260 bricks for 300 dollars a month ago. They were solid cream house bricks though

      If you can get someone else to pay for the freight, like your employer, why not take them.

        There are heaps of places over here where you can get bricks. But like David said, if your not paying for it...why not. But if you cant, I wouldn't worry about it too much. And I know Hobart is a cool town, but it always so much more warmer here in Perth All that is left for you to do is decide if you will be a north or south of the river person.....choose carefully LOL

          Yes, i've already figured out there is 'divide'. Bit like Tassie north and south.
          1 job is in the north, 1 in the south. What will i do??????

          Anyways, sill in the throws of interviewing so who knows what will happen.

          So from all of that, i am assuming that i can easily purchase fire bricks and thermal insulation etc within the Perth area.

          Thanks for the comments thus far.

          Cheers

              Hi wrexter

              I'm in the midst of a build in Willetton - how far have you got with yours? Does anyone in Perth have an "indispensable tool" to lend or provide specs for?

              PS: I bought bricks from the Potter's Market, O'Connor.

              Regards

                If you haven't got your accommodation sorted it sounds like a lot of extra baggage to shift from house to house.

                Changing jobs will probably be unsettling of 6 to 12 months with not much spare time for extra projects.

                if you can sell and get most of your money back a bit of extra money may be more useful.
