Anyone notice these ovens on eBay?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270227505811&_trksid=p2759.l1259  I e-mailed them asking for more info... like where they are made, by whom, etc.

I think it is interesting that the word "imported" is used prominently in the listing. Imported from Naples might give the oven a little credibility. Imported from China would be  expected and might imply a cheap knock-off. Turns out this one is imported from Uruguay. Didn't expect that. FWIW.

There's quite a large Italian descended population in Uruguay. They have a wood-fired pizza tradition as well, although it seems a little, well, unusual:

As far as the oven, well, the vent in the back? hmmm.

Uruguayans have a large barbeque grilling cuisine, called Parilla: Here's a youtube of a grilled pizza:
