Another Aussie Build - Flue Size - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Another Aussie Build - Flue Size

    Another Aussie Build
    I am in process of building a WFO , approx 36" Dia , what size should the flue be 6" or 8" . Have read a great deal of info in books and on the plans , but still would like to know what the consensus of option to what size ?
    As your can see from the pic the oven in under cover , the roof is gabled
    and the flue will go thru this roof, that brings me to another question how far above the roof . I have asked some questions at the a shop that sells wood burning heaters, they where not able to tell me , also whether a Top Hat with Spark arrester should be fitted?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Minimum 10% of your oven opening size, more is better.
