I want to have my basement set up to go to if major winter weather strikes LONG Term and no gas, electric. My heater no longer uses the chimney only the hot water heater. I would like to put something like a oven hood attached to the old heater vent to vent out smoke, can anyone see a problem with this idea??? I am trying to do this as cheap as I can and not leave it in place.
disidoro I would be using a small backpacking foldup stove or charcoal on a dutch oven. I would make a large hood that would attach to the chimney. I wanted to know if the smoke will vent up it. Will there be any other problems?
