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!

  • Indoor oven venting

    Hello

    I am planning a home theater / game room / pub area in my daylight basement and would love to have a wood fired pizza oven so of course I have a few questions.

    Nearly all of the indoor pictures I have seen have what appears to be a vent hood of some kind above the oven opening. Is this for any smoke that may leak out during lighting? Is this tied to the flue or a separate fan/exhaust path?

    The top 18" of my basement walls are above ground so I was thinking of running the flue out the wall near the ceiling, then a T with cleanout outside then a vertical pipe outside. Has anyone done anything similar? Or any other ideas for a basement flue?

    I'm sure I'll have many more questions.
    Thanks
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff.
    I assume it would be separate as tying into a flue higher up would make the flue not draw properly.

      Hi Jeff

      I would check with your local building code inspector to see what you need for something like that? as with our indoor pizza ovens the require a double wall chimney and you can also get an elbow chimney pipe as well if you needed it.

        Burning solid fuel code will require a class A vent. This can be a manufactured system like REE REE B mentions or a custom welded system built to the proper specs which will include 3" of fire wrap.

          Are you talking about the duratech stainless pipe or the black double wall pipe?

          I have the outside chimney figured out, now it's just a matter of figuring out the inside pipe.

          I sent an email and called and left a message for the county so hopefully I hear back soon.

            Youll need stainless as anything less will rot out in no time.

                Looks like I need a 90 degree elbow, but I can only find 30 degree elbows in stainless.

                  90 Degrees is bad for a chimney, 45 is good 30 is better, you just need more pieces.

                    Has anyone used the Duravent DVL pipe? It's stainless on the inside and galvanized on the outside.
