The chimney's location at the center of the dome contributes to the elegance of the oven . I think implementing that needs some sophisticated work, and maybe more insulation for the dome and the chimney as well.

I would be interested to see some more detail. Does the chimney emanate from the front of the oven or what? Surely it would not vent directly from the centre of the dome.

It's a squirrel tail flue...similar to a Neapolitan vent.

You can see the corner of the throat to the left if the vent in the first pic.

Thanks Stonecutter - It does look good. I like bricks and stone better than tiles but to each his own.

We are a bit short of squirrels in this part of the planet.

Stonecutter,
Do you think there is insulation under the leaning part of the flu (I mean between the leaning part and the dome) or is the leaning part of the flu flush with the dome and both the dome and the leaning part of the flu are wrapped with one insulating blanket? The second sounds to degrade heat retention doesn't it?
I'm interested to know because I'm compelled to follow that technique for my indoor oven to hide the flue and make the enclosure elegant.

I looked up the pic many times. I can't see.

I can't say for sure, it's impossible to tell. Most Neapolitans builds I've seen have a type of flue... It looks like a chase..... over the dome, and connect that into a flue pipe without insulating the dome portion inside the chase. The squirrel tails I've built are made using clay flue, with angle cuts for the transitions over the dome. They were on historic beehive ovens, and there was no insulation between the flue and dome.

There isn't anything that difficult routing a flue over a dome, but with an inside oven, there are other factors that effect draw that should be considered....one is negative pressure.

Thanks for the details stonecutter. Interested to see some of the squirrel tails built by you if you have pictures.

Sorry, I don't...they were all done pre-digital camera days. I don't think I could have gotten a good pic anyway, I was always crawling inside dark, tight spaces on those ovens. If you tear into an early home too much, you wind up opening Pandora's Box a lot of the time.

I have at a few ovens in the planning stages, and one will have a squirrel tail flue. I'll document the process.
