Oven 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.

  • Oven Chimney

    Hey Folks,
    I have read all the info in the Pompeii oven plans numerous times as well as a heap of stuff in the forums. I am still trying to get my mind around the chimney for a WFO. I can see how the opening is built at the entrance to the oven and how the flu is attached at this point, using either the Dura Vent system or a refractory liner. I am trying to figure out how to insulate this liner when building a housing around the oven. Building codes require masonry surrounding this liner. If using the typical block designed for the usual fireplace chimney, the weight sitting on the arch increases dramatically with increased height. Even building a surround out of brick gets heavy real quick. Can you just wrap the liner with ceramic insulation instead of masonry? I will still need to get the liner thru the roof of the enclosure somehow.
    I have looked thru the photo gallery and have been unable to find the answers I am looking for. I will go back thru them again to see if I missed something. Does anyone understand my question or have I become a babbling idiot??

    I don't have my chimney through a roof, but I did use a duravent double wall insulated chimney for my oven. It doesn't get above warm temperature on the outside. If your code requires masonry, though, just wrapping it won't meet code. (even though it would probably be fine for temperature)

    I'm not sure you need masonry if it's just a separate enclosure you're talking about, though. I don't think all of the people who have a separate enclosure, not attached to the house, have done so. But if you're doing an enclosure, you have the ability to add extra brick/block on the sides (behind the front wall) to take on any added weight.

    Dmun has quite a tall chimney attached to his build. Look at his thread. But it's part of a house, so he had to do it that way. Check out Ken's enclosure, My old kentucky dome. His chimney, a duravent, I believe, doesn't have masonry other than the arch and vent area.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Thanx for the reply...Glad to see another Virginian ! !

      I went back over all the pics of chimneys and vents again and think I found a couple of ideas.... I will just do a bit of extra strengthening and build the covering for the flue out of brick.
