Brick or Stainless - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

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!

    I have a brick chimney and it serves the purpose of keeping the smoke away from my face and out over my head.

      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.
