Neapolitan vent detail
« on: May 31, 2006, 07:37:38 PM »
Could someone please show me or send me a detail on how the vent on the Neapolitan style oven is formed. Is it cantilevered of the front of the oven? If so how is it attached to the oven?

Best regards

The BEST I've seen is a custom-cast refractory vent on a dome-style oven here:

This one is a great example.  I'm going to try to emulate it.

Well done to everybody on their vent but let's make it clear that are not Neapolitan example (the actual Neapolitan vent is very, very different).

Thank you everyone for the Info. It is very much appreciated! Pizzanapolentana, If you know how a true Neapolitan vent is suppose to be, it would be great if you could share the info.

Best Regards
