Re: chimney hight
Hey Sumu,

I don't think the same chimney physics applies to and outdoor WFO as an indoor fireplace; the oven is outside and the air pressure is uniform for all parts of the system.

The function of the chimney with the WFO is more to pull the smoke up and away from the party of pizza revelers, and the person cooking the pizza.

I think most of us use the default standard length of a section of chimney - 3 feet and report good results.
