how much room do I leave under the chimney cap? - 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 much room do I leave under the chimney cap?

    Having started my MarkII oven a year and a half ago [and cooking in it steady for a year] I am now slowly getting the ''extras'' seen to , still no roof, but I put in a chimney before the heavy frosts . I welded up one from 12ga.steel 9''x29''x24''high. [inches]
    I put it sitting above the oven arch with a 3'' smoke shelf to the dome side, and it's working great , but I want to put a cap on and am wondering as to the distance above .. I have been advised [by a woodstove designer] to put a 1inch steel band bisecting this space [to prevent cross winds from downdrafting] like most new woodstove chimneys . Is there a standard formulae for this?

    In a round stack it is 2/3 the diameter. Not sure about a rectangular but I will look into it for you tonight.
