Chimney dimensions - 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.

    Rethinking the arch for my chimney..Are there any restrictions on the height of the chimney opening in relation to the oven opening? Is there a point where the chimney will not draft correctly and divert the smoke. I have an oven opening arch apex of 10.75" and thinking of a 12 - 13" arch on chimney face.

    I have a 42" diameter oven and the top of the oven opening is 12 inches above the cooking floor. The chimney arch (opening) sits on top (brick depth) of the oven opening and has a 12 inch elongated vent. I fashioned a trianglular stainless steel vent reducing to a circular housing for the chimney flue and added two 4 foot lengths of chimney to the housing. It works a treat with very little smoke escaping out of the oven door. It all pretty much goes up the chinmey!

    Good luck

      Wookie, the chimney sections you have ontop, how have you secured them?

      I intend to use a 5 foot SS 8" chimney ontop and was wonder whether or not to fix it with a metal support to behind the dome, just to help in be stronger in winds and the like.

      Have you secured the bottom perminately or is it removable?

        The sections are male/female type with fluting on the section that fits inside the other. I have secured the sections together with s/s screw. I found that I did not need any bracing especially as my oven is reasonably protected. I also had to secure the 'chinaman's hat' with a s/s screw, the snug fit was not good enough to stop the fixture catching the wind and blowing off. Using two sections I was able to experiment with one section or two to see if the draft was good enough with only one - it was OK but better with the two sections.
