Indoor Corner 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.

  • Indoor Corner Oven

    I am contemplating a corner build of a 36" oven.
    I have experience building rumford and kiva fireplaces. This is my first time for an oven. The corner already has a 6" clay chimney from a now abandoned stove. The exterior walls on the corner are 10" thick adobe.

    Will this flue be large enough? It actually measures 6.5 x 6.5. There really isn't anyway to go to an 8" flue and since the oven is indoors smoking out the door really isn't a good option.

    The second question deals with the location of the chimney since it is at the back of oven has anyone had experience either putting the chimney vent transition in the back instead of the front of the oven? Alternatively would it be feasible to run the chimney over the top of the dome, then tie it in to my existing chimney?

    The sketch shows where the chimney is. I will have to recess the adobes to make the stove fit as shown. Where recessed I will use a sheet insulation like mineral wool or insulfrax.

    I'd check with your local building dept. about the size of the chimney you need for the oven. They will eventually be the ones to sign off on you plans, so you need their blessing anyway. Most of us here use 6 inch chimneys for 36 inch domes, so you should be in the ball park.

    Regarding the chimney positioned at the back of the dome, there's been many many discussions of this configuration. I think the general consensus is that it is not the best way to go. Dmun will undoubtedly fill you in more on this, or you can search the forum for topics or posting similar to "chimney in the back", which might put you right into the midst of those discussions.

    It is possible to use two 30 degree bends in your front positioned chimney to angle it over the top of the dome and presumably capture your existing chimney, assuming that there is room for those angles and transverse sections between the top of the dome and your ceiling/chimney opening.

    Then again, I've been wrong before!
    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

      Re: Indoor Corner Oven

      Thanks for the quick reply. I have looked over the forum and found the squirrel chimney ovens. I am leaning more towards 2 30 deg angles. Does anyone have suggestions for dampering the chimney when the oven is not in use. Since this is an indoor oven the chimney can be a source of cold air into the room. I have used roof top dampers but they usually require a cable running through the chimney which with the angles may not work so well.

      Another question deals with the shape. Is there any issue with making the stove floor oval shaped instead of perfectly round?

        Re: Indoor Corner Oven

        On your shape question -- I have an oval (Artigiano120) and it works great. Ovals are popular in pizzerias that want a lot of cooking space, without getting too wide. In fact, the two largest versions of our Modena commercial oven are also oval.

        Go for it.
