Thanks for that
Great job James

It is amazing how little space you have
I would also like to get a side view of how the hot and cold air flow between the different ovens if anyone can

Regards
Fred

Um, wouldn't simply using two fires solve the problem? Assuming you actually need that much cooking space it stands to reason you'll have to use more fuel - any particular reason why the fire has to be all one mass?

Also, shouldn't a barrel shape result in a downward flow as hot air from the fire is displaced by more hot air and forced to follow the curvature of the vault? It would seem that lengthening the fire base (longer rather than round) could lessen the volume of cold spots by utilizing the barrel shape.

~shrug~ Dunno - just conjecturing out loud.
