Width/breadth of chimney - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Width/breadth of chimney

    My oven's chimney is currently set at 5" x 9.5", but I have not yet determined the height (I know there's another thread for that).

    From what I've read, my dimensions might give me problems with draw and/or else smoke coming out of the front arch.

    If this happens, can I overcome this by building the stack higher?

    A taller chimney always draws better. Standard size here is interior 7 by 7 inches, a rounded corner square. Sounds like about the same area as yours.

      So even if i had the widest chimney in town, it would count for verry little if it did not have sufficient height to draw well?

      I guess this is where the post about 'chimney height' comes in? I have the width (let's say 8" by 8").

        Yes, chimneys work by differential in temperature. That's why they work better when the firebox heats up, and why indoor chimneys in the winter draw so well. The taller the chimney, the more temperature difference. My chimney is almost 20 feet high, and I still get gusts of smoke out the door on drafty days.
