How do I make this kind of chimney? - 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.

  • How do I make this kind of chimney?

    Hi, does anyone know how to make this kind of chimney? Almost all neapolitan ovens made in Italy have this kind of chimney that has a metal that seems to be inserted in the oven. Any ideas?

    maybe stating the obvious here, but I think that looks like a piece of (curved) angle iron that's holding up the flue/chimney vs. the arch and buttresses that hold up the forward part of the vent in the ovens we build. It's also cantilevered...and then where does it go?
    hard to say how that ties into the overall structure of the oven, but presumably there would need to be some kind of weight to oppose that cantilever, whether it be holding up a brick or a steel flue.
    for diy purposes, maybe an angle iron frame that extends back into the brick courses so you get the weight of the dome to oppose the cantilever?

    I've decided that the WFO's in the authentic Neopolitan pizza places around here HAVE to be mechanically ventilated or they couldn't meet code requirements. I presume this would be the case for any indoor oven in a commercial space, at least in the U.S. Maybe that's the case in the photoe, and the vent is at the back so that front part isn't really a vent at all?

      Didn't you post this picture & question over at PM?

      Anyway, the cast iron bar is a support for the exterior masonry. The vent underneath curves up to the chimney. The exact construction will be a proprietary, closely held secret. So unless you hire someone from Naples to build one for you, you will have to make a best guess or experiment.

        looks like a ring of angle iron

          Im guessing angle iron as well, then they vented the chimney (tunnel) over the oven,, Like splat said probably a fan in there,,,, unless you vent it to the top center, You would basically have a false dome (i think) but it could be filled with insulation so I dont think it would be a problem
