Chimney Location - 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.

    Is there a special reason the chimney is in the front of the oven versus the back? I am building the oven as part of a BBQ and the BBQ chimney is in the back. I thought maybe a small landing at the back of the WFO would match the BBQ chimney location better.

    It is better to think of it as a "vent" rather that a chimney.

    The primary purpose is to deflect hot gasses up out of the face during use. The inlet is at the level of the top of the door and allows hot gasses to give up their heat in the top inside of the oven before exiting the vent.

    For the main firing, expect a lot of the smoke and gas to come right out the oven door. Only after the fire dies down will the vent typically handle the volume of hot gasses.

    Having said that, I have seen designs with a vent/chimney at the back. If you want to do this, I would size it larger than normal or you may get some hot gasses in your face while working.

      So fresh air enters through the door at the bottom and smoke/hot air leaves through the top of the same door and the circulation is what does the uniform heating? Quite different than a traditional oven/fireplace. Thank you for the help.
