Anybody tried a 5 inch flue? - 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!

  • Anybody tried a 5 inch flue?

    I'm still working other projects around the home but in the evening I get to work on the design for my steel domed WFO. Besides it snowed here this past weekend, didn't stick but temps are still well below normal for this time of year.

    Right now for my design a five inch Duravent chimney would fit better than a six inch and so my question: Has anybody tried a five inch diameter chimney with a 40 inch diameter dome. Interior height of dome is 18.25 inches if that helps. Thoughts and opinions welcomed.

    Thanks in advance,

    I used 5" DuraTech on my indoor oven in Healdsburg, but it was tiny. So, while it worked fine, I can't say that that is a fair test for a 40" oven. Honestly, it sounds tight to me, and if it was my choice, I would make the 6" pipe fit, which is still less than we recommend.
