Pass kitchen vent through joists?


As part of an upcoming kitchen remodel, I'd like to move the electric cooktop to the other side of the room, away from the existing 6" round vent exit.

Naturally, the joists run the wrong way to make this easy

Above the kitchen is a bedroom.

Is it possible to drill through 4 or 5 of the 9" joists to pass the new vent hose to hook into the old? I assume there are regulations about how much material can be removed. Is it possible to go to a smaller or rectangular pipe, sister the joists, some other idea?

Not going to happen.
Post some pictures.
Install a recirulating vent and no cutting or drilling needed.

Pictures speak 1000 words.

here's the existing.


The house has no gas. I have an induction cooktop and slide-in oven. In the cooktop instructions it says the cooktop cannot be installed above an oven due to heat.

The modifications planned are to
Lower the non-load-bearing wall at the fridge to just above the splashback.
Move the sink to the end
Move the fridge out into the eating area
**move the cooktop to the area where the fridge is now**.
The joists run parallel with the existing countertop.

Here's the proposed layout. I've used window and a 1/2 wall to indicate the area that is newly open to the living room.

The sink will be on the end.
The oven is a 30, the cooktop is a 30, the DW is a 24, fridge is a 28.
The cooktop I would like at the left of the dishwasher. There are two reasons; one is to mean I don't cook with my back to the living room, and second that the flow isn't quite right with the cooktop immediately beside but not above the oven.
I wold leave the microwave where it is and add a vent above the cooktop
