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!

    I am trying to vent my oven to the rear of the oven, since I built the front under a deck I don't want the smoke/fumes accumulating there. Any advice as to angles to incline the flue, etc. Also, do you recommend double-wall stove pipe? It is SO much more expensive than single-wall. I mean the oven is brick, there isn't any wood in the whole thing, what do you think?

    I used single walled stove pipes and redirected the stack by using a couple of elbows.

      What you can do and what you should do are two different things. Code allows two bends up to thirty degrees in a chimney.

      If your deck is attached to your house, then your under deck oven is part of the house and you need to follow building code, get permits and inspections. Building code does not allow for the substitution of single wall stove pipe for a flue system. The reason for this is that stove pipe only lasts for a couple of seasons, and then it breaks down. It is intended to connect a heating appliance to a chimney, in short runs only.

      If you ignore code in an oven that's part of your house, you could have problems with insurance or resale of the house. It's not worth saving a few bucks, when your house is at stake.

        "If you ignore code in an oven that's part of your house, you could have problems with insurance or resale of the house. "

        I agree completely with Dmun. Follow the codes. Having your pizza party turn into a house burning party would be a real bummer.
