  • First Build - Question

    Hi All

    Not sure if this thread is in the right location? But here goes...

    I am building a Barrel / vault style DIY pizza oven.

    The oven is 90cm deep, 80cm wide and 60cm high .... internal diameters

    The image attached shows a cross section of my design which i hope makes sense. The blue shows fire bricks and the orange is klinker (clay) bricks.

    My question is where should i locate the chimney and how big should it be? I have marked the locations as A or B on the image.

    In the round ovens, the chimney is not at the top of the arch but in many of the barrel or vault ovens, the chimney seems to be at the top..... i dont understand this difference??
