Direct venting

In the utility room there is a wood boiler that I use most of time and an oil fired boiler, the boilers are plumbed together. The oil boiler fires during the night and if there is a call for DHW (Indirect Hot water). I'm debating if I should direct vent each boiler desperately or just direct vent the whole utility room and use the room to chill my beer . The oil boiler is made with provisions for direct venting, the wood boiler is not. To direct vent the wood boiler I was thinking to set a 5 gallons bucket up side down, cut a hole on top of it to plumb a flexible vent pipe to it and cut a 6x6 hole on the side where it is going to face the flap of the wood boiler. The flexible pipe will make it easier to move the bucket in order to feed the boiler. Any thoughts?

Direct Venting refers to the EXHAUST.

I believe you are talking about COMBUSTION AIR... the fresh air coming into the boiler room?
