Chimney question -- fire hazard - 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.

  • Chimney question -- fire hazard

    I am installing a Forno Bravo Casa 110 pizza oven inside my post and beam barn. The barn has a high pitched roof on the main part and a shed roof on the rear portion of the barn, where the pizza oven will be. The stack will be coming through the shed roof portion and we are not planning on building a high chimney. Therefore, the chimney will not be above the high peak of the main part of the barn. The roof on the barn is cedar shingles.

    My concern is the chance of starting a roof fire. We are planning on putting a spark arrester on the top of the chimney. We have heard of a liquid fire retardant that can be sprayed on the roofing material.

    Has anyone out there dealt with a similar situation? Any suggestions?

    Personally, I would follow national fire code or any guidelines set by your local officials. I believe national fire code requires that any chimney rise a minimum of 2' above the highest point of any structure within 10'. If in doubt, run it by your local fire officials.

      Hi Joe,

      I moved this to the Chimney/Finish section. RT has it right. If you follow the directions with the DuraVent system, and the fire codes of your local building department, you will be fine -- which typically is 24" higher than anything within 10', and a Listed spark arrestor. Always make sure you are compliant with your local building department.

        Especially with that cedar roof nearby.

          Yeah, kinda sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, huh? That nice WFO wouldn't look very good surrounded by barn cinders. A tall chimney sounds like the ticket!

            In the UK there is a different (much bigger) clearance specified in the Building Regulations if the roof covering is wood shingles or thatch - check this, it may be similar on your side of the pond.
