  • Temporary chimney

    Hi Everyone-

    Winter is coming and I'm hoping to use my newly built (but not yet finished) oven even during the cold months. But since we don't have time to do a real exterior until spring, we built a temporary shelter out of treated plywood (pics below).

    I expected some smoke blackening, but what I (stupidly) didn't quite expect was that the front of the plywood would burn from the heat that escapes through the chimney vent-- oops!

    So now I'd like to build a fast, cheap, temporary chimney. But I'm not sure what to use to do it. Anybody have any clever suggestions? The arch with the vent in it (pic below) is a steel plate that I had fabricated.

    Thanks in advance!

    All you need is some basic black stove pipe from the local hardware store.

      You can make one out of dry stacked bricks.

      It's not safe, but it satisfies you requirements for fast, cheap and temporary

      here is a pic from my thread:

        I think I would go with stacked bricks; might be a bit tricky with the arch though. You could maybe get some concrete board and rig a rectangular duct.
