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.

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!

  • smoke temp at chimney exit

    Can someone tell me how hot the smoke is coming out of a 36" chimney at the hottest time of fire building? We have a telephone line 48" directly above where we want to put our proposed chimney exit using a 36" tall chimney pipe.

    Thanks

      It's gotta be well in excess of a 1000F.

        I had measured 1200 C degrees (+2000 F) at the entry of the chimney on fire running.
        Move the fone line or use a cone or mushroom top on the chimney.
        Burning ashes must be considered, too.

          Wow, I'm surprised. I almost didn't ask the question. I would have thought the temperature would have dissipated more by then (48" from the exit of a 36" chimney). Yes, I am going to use some sort of spark arrester/cone anyway. I have an alternate location I can put the oven in. I will do that. Moving the phone line would be a hassle,... it's the neighbors phone line (living in the city sucks). Thanks for your input.

            Oh, if it is the neighbor's phone line...I think it will be just fine

              I measured 120C at base of chimney(using laser non touch thermometer) and no more than 80 at the top(4 foot). Internal temp of oven was 500c ish.

              Not too sure how acurate this thermometer is, but soo o inside of oven had burnt off, meaning the oven was well over 400c. Also, chimney was 8" which may effect things.

                120 C sounds more accurate to me. I think someone slipped a decimal point.

                  Your chimney tile would be glowing bright red at that temperature. That's cone 6 in ceramics, just short of stoneware temperatures.



                  Time to re-calibrate that instrument.
