Flat Stone Chimney Cap? - 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.

  • Flat Stone Chimney Cap?

    I'd like to cap my 24"H chimney with some 1/2" thick slate I have, but I concerned about the heat degrading the stone. How hot are the gasses shooting out of that thing, and won't they destroy the stone pretty quickly?

    I'd like to lay the slate piece flat, about 4" above the top of the chimney.

    I saw Pizza Bob used a flat piece of stone, but it looks to be at least 2 inches thick. (link to his pic below)

    Any advice or experience is greatly appreciated - I'd like to cap it this weekend.

    I clocked the underside of the steel plate atop of my chimney with a laser.
    The plate is 1mm steel and it was about 120c with a roaring fire.
    The chimney is about 2.5M above the oven ceiling.

        Thanks for the reply - I capped it with a flat slate piece this weekend, and it ran about 300F when going full blast, so I think it will be alright.

        thanks for your pic of your cap - I like the simple approach.

        I actuall had a nice cap fabricated with a gabled roof, but it didn't look good once I put in on. not sure what to do with it.
