Yes I meant to. I woke up to rain and had no idea it was supposed to rain. I'm in the process of covering it now.

What do you suggest I use Txcraig? And where do I get it?

Call around to some chimney/fireplace stores in your area and see what they reccomend. I don't think you need anything fancy - I would think just single wall stove pipe with a rain cap on the end (I'd think you'd want a cap in any case). It shouldn't cost very much. Home Depot/Lowe's may even have what you need. Alternatively, you could get a mason (or you) to extend the existing chimney with something that looks just like it.
Pizza is not bread.

I bought my oven from this guy. YOu would have to check and see whether the size would match up to your chimney.

Oh awesome! Thanks for the pics and website. I will check it out. Yeah I had a few too many last night at the neighborhood poker tournament too! No choice to get up and help with 3 year old and 9 month old kids since my wife is out running a 5K! Oh well at least I got going on curing the oven.

By the way Jconk the tools worked like a dream. I was launching pizzas with ease and spinning them like I had been doing it a while! Thank you again!

Everything went so smooth! With the tools from Jconk and the dough recipe from dellavecchia  everything went perfect.
