40inch - 150mm v's 200mm Chimney???? - 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.

  • 40inch - 150mm v's 200mm Chimney????

    Hi there
    I have finally got to the outer arch and vent of my 12 month build of a 40 inch pompeii oven and now I have the question to 150mm or 200mm vent. I can get both pre fab, the 200mm one takes a few extra days to get in and cost a bit more. So I guess I am seeking advice from all you experts out there..... can I do with just the 150mm. Your wisdom will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kriso

    Hi Kriso,

    A fine looking dome! According to the FB plans, a 36" or smaller oven may use a 6" (150mm) chimney, but anything larger requires an 8" chimney. I built a 32" dome and use a 6" chimney and it draws just fine. I'm not sure if it would have the same effect with a 40" dome or not. My thinking is that with all of the time and effort (and money) you put into the dome so far, why risk it? If it doesn't draw smoke well up the chimney, it will come pouring out of the front door...not the desired effect, especially if it starts sooting up your arch. I would spend the extra few dollars and go with a sure thing. I vote 8"

      I'm with Gene. One cannot 'over-flue' one's oven and it's more pricey to retrofit than fit. Especially with soot stains coming out of an as pretty as yours.
