Flue Size 36 Inch Tuscan Oven - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

    The instructions give an 8 inch flue for the 32-36 inch oven, and 10 inch for the 40 inch oven. This is round commercial multi-wall flue sections. If you are using US standard refractory flue tiles, they are radiused square section. An 8 inch square with 1 inch radius corners has 63 square inches, an 8 inch circle has 50 square inches.

    You can see you can get more draw out of the flue tile. I don't know if it would be enough to use a 8" square for the bigger oven, as a 10" round is 78 square inches. I've noticed in Europe, flue tiles are always round, not square or rectanguar like ours. In any event, probably more than you wanted to know.

      I think you can safely use 6" pipe on a 30-36" oven, and 8" pipe on a 39"-43" oven. The double wall stainless pipe is UL103-listed and well-insulated. It gets hot inside, to draw well and keep soot from building up, and stays cool on the outside. Better living through engineering.

      We provide vent adapters for 6" pipe with the Casa80/Casa90 (31"/35") ovens and for 8" pipe for the Casa100/110 (39"/43") ovens.

      Many owners/builders have noted that pizza oven draw well naturallly.

      I will make that change to the on-line plans, and we will make sure we make the right recommendations in the upcoming PDF plans.
