Flue dimensions - 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.

  • Flue dimensions

    Hi and sorry if this has been asked before but I am asking those who have completed a 36 inch dome oven 'What size flue did you use - 6 or 8 inch, and what length is it? Also, are you happy with the performance of smoke draw and if you could would you change it to a different size? Sorry for all the questions but I am trying to decide what flue size to use on my oven to achieve the best performance.

    36", 8", 4'. The excellent draw on my oven also benefits from what I consider to be a good smoke chamber design. Instead of a hole cut in the top of an otherwise unaltered arch, my arch and vent are shaped like an inverted funnel, with steep sloping sides and a vertical front and rear wall. The steep sides permit air (smoke) to "find its way" upward and the wall at the front acts as a barrier to smoke that would otherwise easily escape out the entrance.

    Check out my build thread or my website for zillions of photos of my arch and vent design.

      Hi Kebwi

      Thanks for the reply. Great photos on your website of your build - very neat brick work. I like your flue design and now regretting not tapering the first brick up on my build more, although the smoke chamber is a reasonable size which I will taper to the flue as it is being made out of stainless steel. I will more than likely go with the 8" flue.

      Appreciate the response.
