Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Single Wall or Double Walled Flue?

    Hey Guys

    Just wondering what the recommended flue type is for the pizza oven?

    I have a 85cm (33inch) wide internal oven and im looking to purchase the flue today.

    Edited.

    Following some advice from poeple.. im planning to get an anchor plate and have a setup similar to http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/21/m...e-2346-26.html

    Is double wall neccesary.. or would single be fine?

    For an internal oven you generally always need a double flue to prevent things getting too hot around where the flue penetrates the roof. If you're not worried about the heat radiating into the room from the flue pipe you can just use a double flue where it goes through the roof and a single one below it. A bit cheaper but mor3 mucking around.

      A general question. I've come into a whole heap load of ceramic blanket insulation and I am thinking I can save some money by:

      using a clay flue chimney, surrounded by a durarock framed chimney, and insulate the area between the clay flue and durarock with my limitless supply of used ceramic blanket.

      Yes or no?

        Is the flue going through a roof and past flammable materials?

          The WFO is not near any structures, so it would only go thru whatever the enclosure ends up being.

            I was just thinking that if it doesnt go near anything that will burn why insulate?

              From what I'm piecing together, but highly unsure about:

              1. efficiency - less loss of heat
              2. Better draw of chimney - I think?
              3. Chimney won't get hot to touch, veneer stone will stick better, etc

              and........drum roll please........

              I have 11 rolls of 25'x24"x2" Ceramic Blanket from the local Intel Wafer Fab facility that they just dismantled....

                Once the heat has gone up the flue, well its just gone.

                Probably not.

                True that it wont be hot to the touch, but then you have to figure out a way to stick the stone.

                So why waste it?
