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!

    Ive just knocked down my pizza oven and im going to build a Pompeii style oven in its place , but I would like to keep the stack sat in the middle of the dome ....this presents me with a problem ....heatloss!
    has anyone come across this problem .... and found a solution ?
    my solution would probably be to build a 36" firebrick dome and using precast pumice or similar flue liners form an "elephants Trunk" from the front entrance back up the inner dome to the center where I can spring the stack up off.
    Then put the outer skin of brick to cover

    Have I just answered my own thread ?

    Re: Chimney

    G'day
    Known as a squirrel tail, good you thought of insulating the chimney as well otherwise they can be prone to heat loss as well.
    Why are you pulling down your old oven?
    It's quite a good looking structure, like the chimney that's a piece of work why pull it down?

      Pulled it down now......a tree hit the stack during some high winds knocking the pot and a course of brick off and fractured the base so it was rocking (just the stack) so it was unsafe, any cheers for the thumbs up on the old 1

          You shouldn't lose any heat if you insulate the dome and place the throat outside the oven opening.
