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!

  • outdoor grill design drawing / questions

    I came across this nice looking design for an outdoor oven/ grill. It looks quite doable but I am wonder about the 4 inch drop between the edge of the grate and the entry to the chimney. Is there a purpose for this. I have see other plans that have the air entry to the chimney at the same level as the fire. Does this barrier increase heat or increase air flow ?

          It must be me. I am trying to load this file as a PNG. It is a snapshot from a PDF. If it is still too small check this link

          and look at Concrete stove #1.

          Thanks

            The PDF you linked to had two pages, one blank and one a disclaimer paragraph. The images were too small to read the dimensions. From what little I see, it is a convoluted air flow. And, how do you grill with an iron plate on top? Does that come off when you're grilling?

              You're right the drawing calls for a flat iron top - it's really a drawing for a camp stove I bet the thougt is to replace the flat iron plate with a grate.

              Without the flat iron plate - it would not draw up the chimney. I'd also bet it took a while to establish a good draw even with the iron plate.

              It took a while for the first page to fully upload but the first page is there....

                Thanks christo. I'm going back to plan A for the BBQ. I have actually seen several plans for a "brick BBQ" with the chimney in the back. Your explaination makes perfect sense. I was considering using an iron plate to help redirect the smoke somewhat like an offset smoker. This should be a lesson to me. Stay with the KISS principle ( Keep it Simple, Stupid)
