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!

  • Bathurst Build 100cm ish

    Hi All,
    Well I feel like I have officially begun now. I have the "approval" for the exempt development from council and my pile of bits and pieces is growing weekly. I have even staked out the site in the backyard.
    I have drawn up the template of the inner dome circumference and the brick layer and the insulation. I have sheets of corflute so I can make as may templates as I like yipee.
    Cheers,
    Rosemary

    Cut that short the little man woke up.
    So anyway we shall be starting in earnest this weekend digging out the area for the slab and putting in the form work. I gotta say the arch is doing my head in and I have not even started laying bricks yet.
    Heading to field furnace next week to check out their supplies. Can't wait.
    Colin you asked me on another thread if I was using hebel for the base. No I am not, at the moment I am tossin up between bessablock and the pretty version that will not need rendering or covering. I am still going with the hebel slabs for the top with lots of lintels underneath. I am going to create an album with all the photos but hav to swap to the big computer as the iPod does not let me load pics.
    Cheers,
    Rosemary

          Been a while what with falling pregnant again. But hubby has some time off and things are moving on. Slab is down. Stand is up, cores filled. Lintels in place so it is really just up from here.
          I do have one question is it essential to have a double walled flue or can a single walled flue work just as well?

                    last photos for today,
                    we were really lucky the guys that delivered the concrete for the slab had a job a couple of streets away and brought the leftovers around for us to use filling the cores. always worth asking

                      Hi Rosemary,

                      Good luck with the build. It is a great experience, with the end result well worth the effort.

                      I only used a single wall stainless flue as my oven is outside. I think the double wall is more for when the flue needs to go through a ceiling/roof.
                      Performance wise I don't think it makes a difference.

                      Cheers

                        The flat bars wont hold much, they will just sag.

                          Hi Rosemary

                          I agree with Brickie. You might need to weld another piece so it makes a T. This will add strength to the steel. then rebate them into the blocks. That's what I did but with Hebel. Flat steel has little strength.

                            That steel looks too big to be store bought for the project so all talk of the steel aside what's the plans for the top slab? Hebel or poured?
                            Like the look of the base so far after building a single entry one, the multiple entry style is a big winner in my book

                              Heabel for the base on top of the steel. It isn't store bought but cut for me by a local fabricator. Hope it work???? It's quite a bit stronger than the stuff in the plans and the hebel has reo, though small, in it as well. Yeah very happy with the base. Two storage areas made more sense to us. Plus added strength under the central part of the oven.
                              Cheers,
