    Some ovens are shown with an opening in the floor of the oven just outside the entrance, Is an "ashpit" worthwhile? Jack

    Only if you're using your oven for retained heat

    An ash pit is not worth the trouble if you are making pizza. I don't have one and don't want one. I bake with a fire in the oven using direct heat.

    If you plan to use your oven as a retained heat oven to bake bread, then an ash slot may be worth considering.
    There is nothing quite so satisfying as drinking a cold beer, while tending a hot fire, in an oven that you built yourself, and making the best pizza that your friends have ever had.
