Hi Damon,

How's the oven going? Been a while.

I would target around 20". I don't know if it would make any difference, but when cooking pizza I am compelled to retain a bigger fire than I really want, to to brown the surface of my pies. Maybe it wouldn't make any difference but I wish I could bring that heat/fire closer to my floor. Everybody loves the pizza, I just wish I could get the top browned a little faster.

Just my 0.02...BTW. I also built my floor with 1'x2' Medium Duty Firebrick Tiles (2.5" thick).
ATK, just wondering where you found your floor tiles and how much they cost? Pretty much am building same oven ,42 in. 21 in. high 20 in.door width 12.5 high, going to read rest of your posts to see if should change anything Thanks much, Wayne in Wisconsin

for browning the top of pizza - I received a tip last week. Once base is cooked and if you wish to brown the top a little more get pizza on the peel and lift and hold at ceiling height for a count of 10. remember its hotter at the top. for pies do the same unless you have many in the oven. It works a treat as I tried it on Monday.
Cheers Colin
