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!

  • Planning a trip to Marina CA

    This is my first post in the forums. I have enjoyed countless hours reading the forums and admiring some amazing projects.

    With a rough plan in mind I checked local (OC CA) Building material yards and have found them lacking. So I ordered a 42 inch Kit from FB and plan Visit the Mother Ship in Marina in a couple of weeks to pick up the materials.
    I was surprised by the cost of the insulated chimney systems by Duratech. As an alternative, dose anyone have experience installing a metal single walled chimney liner such as the product here: 316L Chimney Champion Rigid Chimney Liner Kit - 8" | WoodlandDirect.com: Chimney Accessories, Chimney Liners, Champion Ridgid 316L Chimney Liner Kits

    How important is it that the chimney be insulated (aside from the obvious isolation from combustibles)?


    Though an avid DIYer - this is my first project involving masonry. All advise welcomed.

    -I think a single wall metal pipe doesn't have the longevity. But I don't know (it depends on what it's made of). The link you had for the pipe doesn't say it's for wood (for gas, coal, and oil).
    -Bring a big truck for the kit, it's heavy.

      Your location is O.C. Is that Ontario Canada or Orange County, CA? The open house was in May last year - I would plan the pick up then. It's a good time to meet people and learn some tricks.

      If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

        Hi Mike
        Thanks for the feedback. I have a full sized pick up with a V-8. I think I am ready for the load.

          I am in S, California. Did Forno Bravo have an open house last May in Marina?
