Hello pizza people , has anyone installed an ash dump in their firebrick floor? I realize there is going to be heat lose coupled with the fact ,it would need to be placed out of the way of both fire and cooking area. Just seems like the space below could be partitioned off, 8 in. block, and you would have a ash pit, wood box combo. Wondering really about the heat loss this would cause? Would leave a brick out for a hole to sweep ashes into. Hole would be covered when cooking. Also this hole could be used for additional "fresh air" to stoke the fire as in fireplaces I have built. Any thoughts would be great.
