      The first chimneys were all brick and they worked just fine, Ive a brick chimney on my oven and it draws like a beauty.

      Stainless in the quick and easy solution, plus it saves a heap of weight which has to be accounted for when designing an oven with a brick chimney.

        If you were to use stainless along with a gable roof enclosure how would you flash the outside of the pipe would you need double or triple wall pipe

          A double walled flue should be fine, flash it with a dektite.

            I used double wall with a gabled roof. I built a chimney chase around the pipe, and flashed the top with a chase cover and storm collar. Seems to be working fine. I think it depends on the look you want.

              If the oven is outdoors and is not within reach of curious fingers, the flue can be single walled. I use a 6 inch simple single wall sheetmetal and it lasts about 2 years before crumbling away.
