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 did not find the answer on their site, but make sure that it is insulated. Or be prepared to make some other adjustments that might not make it quite so easy a transition.

      I don't get it. Flue stretcher... for a transition through a roof?

      Why not this Chimney Supplies, Parts, Wood Stove Catylytics, Liner Insert Boots, Thimbles

      Quite pricy...

      Perhaps some pictures would help.

        Re: Flue stretcher

        I intend to put a single plane independant metal roof over the oven. The oven has a 30"x8" square clay tile surrounded by brick filled with loose vermiculite. I am concerned with weight. The chimney will pass through the roof and flashed at the clay tile, and that leaves 2" sticking through. This is roughly 8' high at this point. The stretcher will go on after that for a little more height without the weight. I should have been more clear with the transition term. This is a old and not very good picture....there has been progress since. There is a 9 course square brick wall around the oven that has 3" side and 4" on top insulation,to be followed with loose vemiculite then topped with vermicrete then stucco. Square with a round top. I like the idea of metal penny tile mosaic on the top of the stucco. I've been trying to drive the moisture out before I go further, but it has been raining a lot....I am getting sick and tired of tarps....The roof will be a good thing around here.
