hello everyone I would like to Use regular bricks for the tunnel in the heat storage mass, is it possible? the stove pipe is very expensive where i live and the 8" type is not even on the market.
I have two kinds of regular brick, Red and yellow brick. these are my options. So if i make the tunnel from this without any metal pipe, will they crack and release gases into the room?
Also Anyone knows what the temperatures are at the beginning of the exhaust system?
can anyone with experience give me the answers please, i would thank you a 1000 times.

Thanks for the great idea!
is the system as efficient with this barrel tunneling like the other with regular pipe ?
thanks a lot, that was great
I would say better. Tho, carefull not to exctract too much heat with too long a tunel. Irc, Matthew was saying he went a bit long for a eight incher in the new york restaurant. 8 half barrels 7metres should do the trick. imho.
