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!

  • what to use under anchor plate

    Do I need to put any type of high temp. caulk between anchor plate and bricks for the chimney tube? Do I need to warp the chimney tube with blanket?

    Thanks.

    I used some high temp caulk under my anchor plate, simply to avoid 'smoke leakage.' Honestly I am not sure that it is even necessary.

    I didn't wrap any of my chimney and I don't see the need for it. You are going to lose heat out of the chimney - blanket won't help with that!

      I would recommend high temp caulk when attaching the base plate to the brick. I remember the plate warping a bit the first time I brought it up to temp. If your using double walled pipe, I wouldn't see why you would need to wrap it.

        Nah I bought it but decided not to use it. Mine is simply dynabokted to flue vent and capping bricks cemented in place to make it look pretty. No smoke leakage what so ever

        Wrapping chimney I wouldn't unless there is a specific reason you want to.

          Are your dynabolts stainless? I don't like the use of steel subject to corrosion.And the bottom part of the flue will get pretty hot. A standard dynabolt won't be around for too many years in this position I'd wager.
