Looking for some advice. After I pull the coals to one side, the hearth floor is way too hot. I know that I can cool it down by putting a couple of rounds of dough on it. As it is a waste of good dough, I always cringe when I have to do this. I know that I could pull the coals off earlier and let the floor cool naturally. However, I am always pressed for time. Does anyone have any tricks that do not involve the use of dough to cool down the hearth floor? Is there some type of material that I could put down that would absorb a bunch of heat quickly? I know I am likely dreaming here? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
