WindKat Cowl
I have been searching around to decide what I am going to do for a chimney. My main consideration was to have it seal well at the base when it rains.

I was going to do a ss round flue with cowl with an outer flue so I can seal it at the outer flue base with heat resistant silicone..... but then I saw a cheap windkat cowl on ebay

Has anyone used a windkat flue on a wfo. I thought it might fit nicely on pompeii oven. Then I would do a brick outer chimney with an inner ss flue.

I will just need to think through how best to make rain proof.

Brett, I haven't used one of those cowls....I chimed in here to assure you there is no easy way (read short cut) to do this if you want some kind of permanence. :)

Thanks Lee. All the work you have done compiling the links is really great. I used those links to work through my inner arch like GianniFocaccia, KarangiDude & Sharkley. I am really happy the way it worked out.

I have ordered the Windkat so will let you know how it goes. At the moment I am thinking it is going to be just as easy to do an enclosure as it would be to do a dome over the insulation and then do all the weather proofing of the dome.
