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 flashing

    Hello,

    I have an issue with my chimney. I have not put the roof on my gabled enclosure yet, but when I do the chimney will exit right in the middle of the ridge at the top of the roof. In other words, the roof slopes down on both sides of the chimney. I am using a duravent, but all the flashings I see from Simpson deflect one way only, not down both sides. Has anyone dealt with this problem? Do I need to see a metal fabricator or can I get away with something else?

    Thanks for any input.

    I don't have the answer to your question, but duravent has phone support:

      Hi Fred,
      I had a similar situation with a slow combustion space heater installation. I got around the problem by sealing and rivetting an angled aluminium strip around the outer insulated metal sleeve and then moulding (through using a lead hammer/dolly) a piece of flushing lead to fit the contours of the roof tiles either side of the gable. It was then carefully slid down the chimney, dollied back to the metal (as it the hole needed to be slightly larger to fit over the sealed aluminium ring) and silicon sealed. Depending on what type of silicon you use, some will withstand up to 850į temperatures before failing.
      Hope this helps.

      Regards.

      Neill

        I love lead flashing - you can't do a classic slate roof without it. Unfortunately it's illegal in the US. The local junkyard once offered to sell me a bunch of used lead flashing (to melt for clock weights) if I paid cash, no reciept.

          Interesting, it is still quite legal over here and used here for roof flushing. Sorry for the mis information, but a silicon based rubber vent seal could also be used if you can find one large enough to accommodate the vent.
