What kind of vent pipe are you using?

  1. Hello everyone,
    I'm in the end stages of design for a cold smoke house. The only question I currently have is what pipe to use to vent from a wood stove into the house. I have heard not to use galvanized steel stove pipe due to the release of toxins when heated. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Will your pipe be underground ??
     
  3. No,the pipe will run about 10 feet from the stove to the smoke house above ground.

  5. That's what I was thinking. I just wanted to be sure. That works out great, I just saw 12 feet of the exact same pipe at the local habitat for humanity re-store for five bucks.
    Thank you for your input Mr. Omak

    That would be a great buy. I use a wood stove to smokebox also.

    Will you be able to shade your pipe?

  7. I am still trying to figure out how to keep from direct sun exposure.

    If you are planning to cold smoke that would be a great benefit. At the least consider painting it silver or white. What are your plans for use as a smoke generator. I use one of two Smoke Daddy's or a tray type generator. Dave uses a tray type also.

  9. I am not planning to use a generator. I want to keep the design as primitive as possible.

    If you are planning on a fire in the stove, after experimenting you may want to consider a longer length to the box. I can keep mine +/- 2° of ambient.
