Wood fired pizza oven chimney


In brick ovens, 1/4th of the heat leaves through the chimney. A chimney also improves the airflow through the oven. It also helps direct the smoke so it doesn't blow out on your face. An enamelled flue pipe can be used for the chimney. The height of the chimney depends on the size of the oven but it can be anywhere from 1 meter or more. Some people choose not build a chimney in their ovens but that may result in an oven the does not perform at its optimum and may result in excess smoke issues.

If you intend for business then it follows that the size is bigger and costlier. As to design, there are a lot of templates to choose from many online sources. You can the features you like from the different designs then come up with your own unique pizza oven chimney. But if you prefer to adopt the full details of the design available online, be sure to give credit to the source or designer.

Type
