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!

  • Chimney Completion Photos

    There is a general theme to the masonry chimney completions in the neighborhood....and then there's the variations.

    Hopefully these can be used for ideas and inspiration.

              Re: Chimney Completion Photos

              All those came on our afternoon walkabout yesterday...

              note that the openings run all over the place, square, round, triangular, oval, arched, and also in combinations some simple(two tiles forming a inverted V, others more complex.

              Enjoy!

              Now I'll reserve myself for extra special ones I run across.

                  XJim,
                  You sure have some interesting architecture in West Michigan

                  Great shots! Thanks for posting them. I used to walk around the towns in Sicily and take pics of the curch bell towers.

                    Cool! You even put in my favourite one in twice

                    Now if I were more certain of the strength of my vent, I'd really go for something like this.

                    Great thread, hope lots of builders are inspired by it!

                      Frances, that must mean your favourite is my favourite - the fluted terracotta one with the spire on top? Something for us to a-'spire' to??

                      Jim, they're all really cool - thanks for the in-'spire'ation!

                        Great photos Jim - that must have been a fun project. I really enjoy the traditional chimney cap.

                        Here are two more.

                          James, I got the idea after looking at your two chimney completions!

                            There are many fancy designs for chimney cowls in the Algarve, here's an example below :



                            Apparently there is an old tradition of showing off your wealth through having the fanciest chimney possible!

                              That probably relates to chimney pots as well. I've seen some really nice ones but I'm guessing you have a lot of varieties in the UK.
