flue questions - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

    I built a pompeii oven with a 48 inch interior diameter using the FB plans. I'm venting with clay pipe from the mouth of the oven to the top of the dome. I need to run the flue up 2 floors. Any recommendations on what diameter flue and clay pipe I need?

    Hey Buix5, have you had a look at Dmun's build:


    It's a smaller oven, but has a tall chimney like you describe, also a meticulously documented build. Lots of good info.

      I have a 40" Pompeii with an 8" round steel flue 10' high and it draws a treat with absolutely no smoke out the front arch.
      I would play it safe and run either an 8" square or preferable 10" round stainless flue if I was to install one.

      If you don't succeed the first time, try again and again until you get it right!
