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!

  • Vent Placement for Lintle opening

    How did people place the vent for the chimney when they had a lintle opening and a decorative arch? By that I mean did you do a row of arched bricks, an opening in the bricks, and then another row of bricks or did you leave an opening immediatly after the dome then start on the arch?

    Thanks!

    Amber - I went with an arch, opening, then arch.

      God yours is good! Did you shim the chimney up around the sides, to keep it from moving?

        Amber - if you go to my thread (Les' Build), page 3 link #146. You can see what I did to support the chimney.

            I built mine from the dome out towards the front. I left the bricks run long at the inner arch so they could key in with the outer arch. I then faced the outer arch with the decorative arch and let it hang down about 3/4 of an inch to encourage smoke to go up the chimney vs. out. It seems to work well.










            As you can clearly see - my brick cutting and cleanliness is not quite up to par with Les.

              Well, honestly, whose is? Looks great, though, and as long as the pizza tastes good! Thanks for the visuals.

                Also - you can't see from the pics. The inner arch bricks are notched so that they go under the dome arch and support it. I packed the tails of the inner arch bricks with refrax (refmix) so that I was sure the arch supported the dome opening.

                BTW - thanks for the kind words!
