How hot does entrance hearth get? Wondering about this because if it does get hot maybee we don't want it to get hot as it might be an area that if it had a insulation break between hearth floor and cooking floor then this entrance hearth wouldn't waste heat up time and it might make things more effecent. Why soak this area if we dont need the heat there? I have not seen one of these ovens in action although I am building one so still not real sure what gets hot and what doesn't. I understand that the vent above we want to get hot but maybee not the floor area. I myself have used the same mortar and brick treatment for this area as the rest of my dome construction so my question is only of the curious sort. Picture above is of round 8 completed today. ...... wayne
