redirected 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.

    I am trying to vent my oven to the rear of the oven, since I built the front under a deck I don't want the smoke/fumes accumulating there. Any advice as to angles to incline the flue, etc. Also, do you recommend double-wall stove pipe? It is SO much more expensive than single-wall. I mean the oven is brick, there isn't any wood in the whole thing, what do you think?

    I used single walled stove pipes and redirected the stack by using a couple of elbows.

      What you can do and what you should do are two different things. Code allows two bends up to thirty degrees in a chimney.

      If your deck is attached to your house, then your under deck oven is part of the house and you need to follow building code, get permits and inspections. Building code does not allow for the substitution of single wall stove pipe for a flue system. The reason for this is that stove pipe only lasts for a couple of seasons, and then it breaks down. It is intended to connect a heating appliance to a chimney, in short runs only.

      If you ignore code in an oven that's part of your house, you could have problems with insurance or resale of the house. It's not worth saving a few bucks, when your house is at stake.

        "If you ignore code in an oven that's part of your house, you could have problems with insurance or resale of the house. "

        I agree completely with Dmun. Follow the codes. Having your pizza party turn into a house burning party would be a real bummer.
