As requested: Pics of my new pizza oven

I still intend to get a forno napoletano, because nothing compares, but this oven will have to do for the time being. I will soon post more pics of what it produces. The quality of these pics isn't that great, they are from a camera-phone.

Is it wood fired or charcoal?

I see that it's called "Il Fornaio" - is this the brand or the model?
I did a google on the oven but I couldn't find it.

@Randy, it is wood-fired, but it is "indirect," ie: the fire is below the stone, not on it. Also, as you can see, it is a barrel oven, not a dome, what you don't see is that it has a fan inside that creates the slightest bit of air movement, which I think is an attempt at mimicking the natural convection that happens in a dome-shaped oven with the fire to one side. We just got the fan to work (its an italian oven that required 220v for the fan, so we had to get a new power supply), and I think the fan is partly responsible for the better results that I got recently. The other reason was the quality of the dough.

@vitus, the brand is Di Fiore. Their web-site is www.difiore-forni.it, but it is all in italian, so you may have some trouble navigating. You can also go directly to the oven I have.

Let me know if you need any more details.

p.s.: That is focaccia in the oven.
