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!

  • flue positioning

    does the flue need to be on the troat of opening? ,I placed it in the dome between the trasition of opening and dome, and placed a steel trap vent in between the first clay 8" flue 1FT long and second 8" 2ft. clay square flue,will this work, I ran out of landing area only have 1- 9" fire brick lenght left (made oven too large 48" diameter 24" height) some smoke does come out of opening on initial firing with vent open wide, Iam concerned of the heat loss through vent in chimney vent it heats up good I have not tried a large fire yet, any thoughts or suggestions thanks.

    Hi all,

    I moved this to the Pompeii Oven forum.

    It is better to locate your oven chimney the cooking dome, in the vent area. It will draw better and hold heat inside the oven, plus you can control air flow with your door. The oven won't be able to breath through the vent.

    If your chimney and vent is inside the dome, you can trying using a flue damper in the chimney to control air that way.
