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.

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!

  • Flue Liner

    I am using a taracotta flue liner. When I put the roof on what do I use to put around the liner? Do I have to put anything? This is my first oven, I will be posting pictures soon, I am having a great time doing this on my own. Please let me know about the liner

    Re: Flue Liner

    I ran into a similar issue when I ran my terracotta flue pipe through the roof on my oven.

    Not sure I took the easiset route, but it seems to be working well for me.

    I took some of the ceramic iblanket scraps I had left and wrapped it around the flue tile where it passed through the roof. I have at least a 3 inch gap between the flue and the metal studs used to support the roof. I do not have any combustibles in my enclosure construction until it comes to the rubber membrane roof.

    I made roughly a 5 inch frame of the iso board around the flue and attached it with construction adhesive around the outside edge only. I smeared hi temp silicone on all the cracks.



    Over that I installed my rubber membrane roof, careful to keep it 3 inches or more away from the flue tile.

    I then made a small form 1 inch larger in all dimensions than the ceramic isoboard curb, wrapped a piece of cardboard around the flue tile to leave an expansion gap and poured a chimney cap. Since it was rather thin, I used fiberglass reinforced stucco mix and threw in a shovel full of gravel.

    After it cured I pulled the cardboard out from between the flue and the cap and sealed the gap with hi temp silicone. I painted the flue and the cap with black paint when I was done per the picture below.

    Good luck!
