Wood fire oven smoke management?
« on: March 07, 2012, 10:04:26 AM »
On high wind days I get "puffing" from the oven creating smoke in the dinning area. I would like to hear how everyone else handles this issue. Thanks for any help.

The most effective solution would probably be a rotating directional cap on the stack.  Looks like this compant specializes in them:

Here in Texas, and many other places, our bbq pits have the same "problems".  Many of the timers say that the solution is to put a small horizontal section of pipe at the top of the existing vertical pipe.  The top of the exhuast then looks like a "T"  Supposedly the venturi effect cannot happen then.  It worked for me, but not on a pizza oven.
