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!

    Your flue is to small for the oven. It looks like a 4 inch and should be at least 6 inch.

      yup, you´re right, is 4 inch... you`re saying it should be at least 6" that means I should go for 8" wide, right?

        It looks like a corrugated SS chimney liner too. Get rid of that and use a triple wall chimney or box in a traditional clay flue. I realize you are in Mexico and all, but what you have there is a fire hazard.

          BTW, are you burning gas and wood in this oven? I was curious about the size of the throat in the vent...that might be hurting your draw too.

            That is dryer venting pipe, not flue pipe. Go bigger.

              Holy smokes I think you're right....I just enlarged the images and I missed the sectioning before.

              I really hope that it is really chimney liner and not dryer pipe....wow. Either way, it's gotta go.

                        In the first pic post number 10 there are two slithers of brick that when removed will aid in the smoke escaping, they appear to be parts of a half brick.
