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 have just sourced 8" square chimney liners from a local building centre. I was planning on using clay ones but couldnt find any.

    I am concerned about the draw using these liners as they are made from a lightweight pumice like material. I know that I will get draw from the height of the chimney but I thought that you also needed heat retention in the chimney itself.

    I could not get any info on these liners as the centre was trying to sell them off to make way for new stock, so I did get a deal.

    If I need to I could make up a clay/cement mix to add thermal mass to the inside of the chimney.

    Chimney lining is done fairly routinely, but you shouldn't have to do it with a new chimney.

    I don't get something. The UK is full of chimneys, multiple ones on every building. Every one has a round red clay chimney liner sticking out of it. I think it would be pretty common.

      yes, I agree.

      Those buildings are over 100 years old though and there are loads of chimney pots in the reclamation yards, just no clay liners. What they do have are the pummice like liners and lots of larger heavy cement based liners.

      I could of ordered clay liners, but I was impatient and the ones I bought, described above, were a perfect physical fit for my oven.

      I will be bricking up around these liners anyway and finishing off with a really nice clay chimney pot!. I just wanted to make sure that my rushed material choice for the liner was not going to reduce the performance of my oven.

        No, I'm sure if it's sold as a chimney liner, it will work just fine. Show us pictures when you get the material.
