Is a 4x8" flue liner too small for a 42" dia oven? - 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.

  • Is a 4x8" flue liner too small for a 42" dia oven?

    I just got a 4x8" flue liner and looking at it makes me think it might not provide enough draw for the relatively large Pompeji oven.

    is this really big enough?
    How tall should the chimney be? Does it matter?

    I was planning to notch the two vent arches and set the flue liner on top of the arches. (only the first vent arch is shown in the picture. Another one planned about 4" in front of the shown arch)

    Well the recommended sizes for the ovens in the FB family are 6" diameter for the smaller and 8" for the larger ovens. And as I remember the oven plans recommend 6" by 10" opening for brick or clay flues. I would say go with something bigger so you don't have to worry about smoke in the face.
    Oh, by the way nice work on the oven so far.
