Hearth Floor Too Hot
 
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.

You must learn, "Time Management"! Whatever else you do, is temporary. Once you close the door, in a few minute the oven's going to re-boot back to it saturated state. If its insulated, its doing what it suppose to do.

You can alway use your indoor oven, when you're pressed.

Spray some water on it, not a lot, just a couple squirts from a spray bottle.

If dough is doing the trick for you why not put in a few pans of cold water. That should bleed some heat away in that area for a time...

I always place the first pizza about halfway in the door where the floor is a bit cooler. Turn more frequently. Then for each subsequent pizza just push it in a little bit further

I was assuming that he was cooking bread rather than pizza, it that case a little misting and pizza placement can do the trick, especially if he's good in the usage of his peel.

Doctor, doctor, ...., it's hurts when I do this.


Then don't do that.

A damp mop could work for a quick cool down also.
