42" WBO build in NJ vent landing ? - 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.

    Seeing as how the minimum INTERNAL flue diameter is 8 inches for a 42 inch oven, a landing if only 4 to 6 inches is clearly inadequate. From the outside of the inner arch, your landing would have to be at least 12 inches.

      Hey dsm,
      I posted a pdf for you on my main oven thread that shows MY landing. It is 15" deep. I think it may be 1-2" deeper than most but I have seen some shallower. As azatty says, the flu pipe should be 8" round (or bigger if using rectangular clay pipe) and you have to smoothly transition from the bigger opening above the landing to that smaller opening. It will draw the smoke much better this way. In hind-site, I might been able to make my landing 2" shorter and still had the good smoke draw, but I'm not sure I would have had the brick-knowledge/ know-how to keep the transition as tall as I did. The deeper landing also gives you a place to set your pots and casseroles, or pizza peel while you stare into your oven deciding where to place something. Christo uses his large landing to bake cookies on and I use it to keep stuff warm while other stuff cooks.

      Keep checking out others threads and pics and you'll a good idea what you need,

        Mine is probably 12 inches, but then I have 4 inches of decorative arch to boot. 12 is a bare minimum number. I'd probably shhot for 13-15 like Dino has. It gives you more space for the vent and flue.
