Hello everyone. Very glad I found a forum dedicated to pizza ovens. I recently completed my outdoor kitchen and have a pizza oven that was installed. It is under a 9 foot ceiling lined with vinyl soffit material. The other day while using it for the second time but first time with a larger fire the amount of smoke that came out the front of the oven instead of going up through the chimney caused alot of charring and softening of the vinyl. I am using kiln dried oak which was delivered from my fireplace wood supplier and I really need advice on the smoke issue. It was so bad that my eyes were burning just being near the oven's area.
