I am in the middle of my pompeii oven construction. I am getting ready to plan vent and door location. In almost all photos of other ovens, it appears the vent is in front of [anterior] to the potential door location. My question is this.... I thought the purpose of the door is to keep the heat inside the oven. If the door is kept closed, won't this prevent smoke from leaving the oven and also preventing oxygen from entering to continue the fire?
