New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Get 10x10 flue, minimum, for that sized oven, unless you want a really tall chimney. Clay flue goes by outside diameter, not inside, so to get an eight inch cross-section you'll need an OD of 10 inches.

        It goes from 8x8 to 13x13 (OD) in clay flues. You can try and find round clay (it is measured ID, FYI), but it is almost as pricey as metal. I do not know what size you need, whatever is recommended by the FB plans, I guess.

            Standard square and rectangular flue is cheap, round clay flue is pricey.

              In California, a 13" square clay flue tile is around $25 per 1' section.

                  25 bucks is about what it cost me for the fire brick per foot for an 8" id section of my flue.

                      You should probably plan for a three foot chimney. FB plans call for a 3 foot chimney using 8 inch round stainless pipe. The 10x10 square flue has the same effective cross section as 8 inch round, so the draw won't be the same between 2 feet of 10x10 and 3 feet of 8 inch round. Also, with a flat roof you still have to account for insulation (3 to 5 inches), the roof beams (4 inches), a bit of an air space for ventilation (2 inches) finish material (1 inch minimum), plus a "reveal" at the top of the flue for a spark arrestor if required by local code.

                      Two feet looks good until you put the roof on, and then it will seem too short. Two feet on my 42" oven clears the flat roof by 16 inches, and that's only because it's sitting on an 18 inch vent transition.
