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!

  • Flue damper in action.

    Here is a vid of my flue damper in action in my barrel oven with a fire in it.
    The temp rise is significant as the damper is closed, when the damper is opened the temp drop is also great.

    The insulated door is partially open to allow for some air flow, as is the damper.

      With your door partially open there is cool airflow around your thermometer. I get a similar effect with an oven thermometer placed in the middle of the oven if the door has been out for for a while. The temp climbs up as the oven heats the cold air. I usually wait 10 mins after closing the door before opening it again to check the reading.If you read your temp with an IR i'm sure you would get a different story. Notice your gauge reads in F rather than C

          It was the cheapest I could get, I didnt want to pay $100 or more for one, this one cost $13 plus postage.

            I think your thermometer looks great! It looks a lot like mine.

            Should have mine in the door within the week.

              I was wondering how it was all going, your oven looks great BTW.

              Are you going to roof over the oven?

                Yes, the oven will be under a patio cover. We should start that in the next week or ten days.
