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!

  • Pizza Oven/fireplace

    OK, dumb question - is it possible to build a combo outdoor pizza oven/fireplace where the oven is directly above a fairly traditional fireplace?

    It seems the fireplace would use a rear flue and the oven a front flue, so you could do them together, since you would never use them at the same time.

    What am I missing?
    Thanks, John

    Re: Pizza Oven/fireplace

    Yes it can be done but it is genereally not recomended. as you said the fireplace has a flue at the rear and oven at the fron but the trouble you run into is that the oven will be much larger/deeper than the fireplace so even though the flue is at the rear of the fireplace it is probably somewhere in the middle of the oven above.
    Having said that i am in the process of building an oven abouve a fireplace but am having the fireplace flue at the front as well.
    Most beople recomend putting the oven to the side of the fireplace if you want to have it all in the one area.

        Having a "Y" shaped flue can only effect the draw of either appliance badly. I have a oven/fireplace combo, but the openings face 180 degrees apart, and there is a two flue chimney.
