Chimney and vent size - 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.

  • Chimney and vent size

    I am building a 45" pompeii oven in Denmark right now and I am getting to the part where I have to decide on the chimney and vent size.

    The door to the oven is 21" wide and now I am wondering which size the chimney should be.

    Is there a general rule to this?

    The chimney will be a non insulated black painted steel pipe (the ones normally used for WF stoves) around 1 meter high. My thoughts are that either a 6" or 8" would be fine.

    And how wide should the vent leading up to the chimney be?

    Thank you for your input

    Br. Joergen

    Six inch vent on a 45" oven is too small.

      I have a 6inch chimney on a 32 inch oven and I almost went bigger. I'm with Utah you definitely want 8 inch.

      The area of the vent needs to be BIGGER than the area of the chimney. An 8 inch chimney has an area of 50 square inches - so you want to be bigger than that for the vent; For instance 10 inches by 6 inches.
