Ok guys, my 36" oven..... do I use a 7" or 6" chimney as the FB plans call for? Also the height of my chimney... 36" or 48". Either one will clear the top of my enclosure. There's nothing around my WFO to obstruct air flow like trees etc...

It is not so much the oven size as it is the inner door opening size.

For a 36" oven a 6" flue is adequate, but you need to go to 8" for a 42" oven. So a 7" should be plenty for yours. If you use a 6", then perhaps use the taller flue. Like as has been said before, you can't really over flue a front flued oven, but you can under flue it.

Ok so this isn't my oven, but it's part of my master plan. I finished my 620 sf patio in 3 days. All that's left to do is the firepit, some planters, and my WFO !!



Here's a picture of the hardest worker on the job !

I'm wondering how many layers of brick you can do at once when you first start laying brick. Should you only do one "ring" at a time and let the mortar harden before you start the next layer?
