Does anyone have thoughts on how much heat loss is "acceptable" through the insulation board and into the hearth? I am considering a material that, according to the manufacturer's calculations, will reach about 206 degrees F on the side opposite an 1100 degree heat (assuming that heat is direct and constant). Does anyone know how FB Board compares to that? Is 1100 too high a number to use? I could have them recalculate it, but what's a realistic number (i.e., how hot does the base of the oven floor get)?
No announcement yet.
