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!

  • Mounting anchor plate?

    I've got a stainless anchor plate which is going to accept an eight inch diameter, double walled, insulated, forty-eight inch tall chimney. The cheminey and ran cap weigh approx. forty pounds total. Anyone have any thoughts about the best weight to mount those plates?

    Brick it in?, use masonry-type anchor/screws?

    Any help appreciated . Here's what I have to work with:

    Chimney and plate just resting in place..

    Plate just resting there...(looking down from above oven)

    This is the surface the plate will mount to (also looking down from above the oven...you can see the ash chute in the top of the photo)

    I used blue screws (Tapcons). It's been exactly 5 yrs, never an issue. I'm not sure how you are finishing, I did an igloo. When you factor in insulation, mortar, tile, then a complete refinish over top of that; Mine is encased in at least 8" of mortar, tile and stone...its not going anywhere.
