ayone integrated an outdoor Rumford FP with WFO?
 
It seems like it would be possible to integrate an Rumford fireplace with a circular wood fired pizza oven, to share the same flue (with FP and WFO never used at the same time). The Rumford would be start 6" or so above ground level, extend 36" tall, then build your WFO deck from there so the ceiling for the FP is the deck of the WFO. You could fashion a removable insulated door to either block off the fireplace when using the WFO, or block off the WFO when using the fireplace. Has anyone pulled off a build like this?

All the outdoor kitchen designs I have seen have the WFO and FP split, so they don't share any chimney or flue. This seems like a lot of extra block to build separate components, so there must be some inherent difficulty I'm missing.

i have seen pics of what you are talking about, and even a few builders on the forum are trying that i think. I will try and find the posts and put them here.

I agree that the split chimney won't work. "buckeyebreadman" sounds like he has a solution - I PMed him for pictures

In scanning the two designs, I see that the 36" Pompeii oven calls for a 6" diameter chimney, with no throat, while the 36" Rumford calls for a 13" square chimney, with a proprietary throat and smoke chamber: http://www.rumford.com/plans/classicflyerplan.gif

I wonder if this is the fundamental reason for the difficulty, the mismatch in required chimney size for the two devices?
