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 all,
    Suppliers for fireclay and ceramic blanket in Tasmania?
    Can you help?
    Also, I was talking to a local brickie who said that I don't need ceramic blanket for insulation, normal rockwool batts would be just as effective. Now I don't want to build the oven on the cheap but am I wasting time trying to source ceramic blanket when I can use the batts?
    Thanks

      Normal fiberglass insulation is not built to go directly against the brickwork its much to hot. There are other industrial fiberglass insulation types that would probably suit , but I do not have direct knowledge of these.
      The two types of insulation commonly used in forno ovens are ceramic and pearlite or vermiculite mixed with Portland cement .
      Ceramic is the most efficient but the most expensive .pearlite cement cheaper but usable at greater thicknesses. Normally you could say 100 mm of pearlite and cement would be equal to 50 mm of ceramic.
      All of this is in the forno oven plans which are free and available from the forno shop. Drop a free set in your shopping basket and a PDF will be e-mailed to you.
