Having not built an oven yet I have a question that I can't find an answer to in the FB plans. I will try to make my self clear. Everyone uses firebrick or some refractory material for their landing. Most people have a firebrick arch covering the vent landing that then transitions to whatever decorative arch is on the front of the enclosure. There is a layer of insulation beneath. Most people don't put any insulation between the fire brick of the vent landing and the concrete or tile or whatever other material is in front of it. Does this area get hot?
