i am confused about the door. Where does it exactly go before or after the flue?

The door should fit the oven chamber opening
The door fits tightly at the oven chamber opening, so that you can:

1. regulate the fire by controlling air flow
2. cut the fire off if you want to get ready for retained heat baking
3. hold heat inside the oven for baking

I used a French precast oven while on vacation in Provence a couple of times, where the door fit the vent opening, not the oven chamber opening, and it was terrible. You really couldn't control anything. I tried to put the fire out, and the fire kept breathing in air from the chimney. You have to chuckle -- a french-made, Italian pizza oven. :rolleyes:
