the outdoor oven was built by restaurant owner, who assures us he did his research and built a "great oven"...it is layered fire brick, insulation, and cement covered with curved pieces of steel...the "chimney" is 3 lengths of clay flue liner...the neighbors claim the oven produces so much smoke that they cannot open windows even in the heat of summer...we recognize the smoke is a health hazard, but before we insist that owner extend chimney or completely "cease and desist", we need to determine which category operating temperature is in...low,medium, or high-heat (section 2113 of ICC Building Code)...no idea where to look for this  information.
