It goes without saying that when I impugn "cat hoarders", present company is excluded.

Default Keith's thread

Not trying to be catty here...

But Keith has a serious problem. I wonder what the latest is on his situation? I don't see him post in this thread very often.

Default Re: Neighbor is complaining about soot damage

yes...i'm interested to know the latest also.

I have a pretty close neighbour behind me, and i just hope i dont have this kind of trouble either. i was thinking about placing a flat fan that i could lay on the base of the back of the oven and blow upwards drawing smoke up up & away, might help with lingering smoke drifting into neighbours yard. May also be beneficial for the flue to help draw out. Thoughts anyone??
Nothing worse than wingeing neighbours that can ruin your idea of fun in the backyard with a beer & an oven. I'll try anything to prevent this from happening

Aussie Pete, Its been a while since I read this thread, so I can't say I know whether anyone's mentioned it or not, but here in South Oz at least, much of the problem with smoke and neighbours is covered by a minimum height requirement on your flue.
Here in OZ blokes practically live in their sheds, and a pot belly is just about mandatory for the winter.
So there is a minimum height the flue must go above the ridge line of your shed, can't remember what it is. I suggest a nice tall flue would be the simplest and most efficient way of getting your smoke up and away from your neighbours.
Regards,
Mick

Default Re: Neighbor is complaining about soot damage

thanks Mick, i have 2 pieces of single thickness flue about 4ft long, i should really go the double insulated flue, but i was given these, so i'll use them. I cant seem to find any legal or regulations stuff on the net regarding smoke/ovens/fires/flues for the gold coast area (anyone know).
Is there a maximum flue height you should really not go to, or is it a matter of the higher the better. My thinking is the higher the better, it would mean the top would be in the air stream and help draw (so to speak)....any thoughts??
