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!

    Hi Dave,

    I can't recommend a business in San Diego, but this part is commonly available at masonry supply businesses, in various shapes and sizes. If you don't get a local with a specific response to your question, to the phone book and look at the masonry supply businesses.

    Good luck with your search,

        Hey david,

        I am surprised to hear this. I guess the masonry fire place has been replaced by the modular fire place: buy it at Walmart, and plug it in...

          Yeah, it's the old problem of fireplace supplies in hot climates. Drain tile won't withstand heat, and four inches isn't nearly big enough. You could look for a cast iron pipe, that would be a good, if pricey substitute. Ask at a big plumbing supply. Or, you could get flue tile shipped in. Any masonry supply or brickyard should be able to do a special order.

            This was one of the reasons I ended up going with the Dura$ chimney. I have to say I am amazed by how cool the outside of the chimney stays during burns. The cost on the other hand... OUCH.

              Dave,
              If you want to consider ordering from RCP special order, we can both order and split the shipping, probably will be less than Duravent even with pricey shipping charges.

                  As far as I know, clay flue liners are not allowed in new construction in CA --earthquake code-- anyway, ever since the SC-AQMD banned wood-burning fireplaces in new construction, wood-burning fireplace supplies have been hard to find.

                  I went with the duravent -- no complaints, except that 2, 2' sections arrived dented -- the vendor replaced them free of charge.

                  BTW: wood-fired ovens are still legal in LA/OC, but not outdoor fireplaces.

                    Also forgot to mention, I've seen two clay liners split on a temporary pizza oven -- we figured they must have had some internal moisture as they were dry stacked.

                        I am also thinking about using a clay flue but if I can't find one locally I'll use firebricks instead.

                          I gave up on the clay flue and got a Simpson chimney and plate for $200

                            Geez, I might have to do that too. It will be completely covered with stucco.

                              Or perhaps I might find one in Mexico next time I drive down there...
