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!

    This is a picture of an oven I purchased from a building supply company that is going out of business. They told me it had been in storage for many years and have no literature for it. Has any one seen this oven before? Ive searched the internet without any luck and my wife already thinks its a crazy idea to begin with. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Mystery Oven

    Hi greetings from Wales UK.
    I am sorry that I have not seen this type of oven before but I think the oven looks like a modular oven similar to a barrel type oven. If the front opening is the oven mouth that puts the flue/chimney at the rear of the oven.
    Does anyone have a view on where the flue should be? I think that it should not be taking heat directly out of the oven, unless it can be shut once the fire is well developed. So I think a flue should be outside the oven space.
    Most designs I have seen have the flue outside the oven area or after the oven door, to take products of combustion away from the oven mouth.

    Does the design intend the flue to be at the back of the oven space?
    You know from your training about compartment fires and how they can be vented from above, but if you want to manage the heat flow you will need to be able to stop up the flue or relocate it.
    I guess the only way you will find out about the oven, is to build it and work it & I guess you will have to consider a base and the insulation to keep in the heat and make the oven burn efficiently. This forum has all the info you will need.
    Are you working in the fire department? I retired last year after 33 years full time. best wishes Nick
