Hi cook4fun,
That may be the 2" thick rigid insulation foam that came with the FB kit. Below that, I had put a 2" deep mold into the concrete the same footprint as the WFO and filled it with a mixture of vermiculite and concrete to get more insulation.
Here is a link to the board

Does that answer your question?

After cooking pizza last week, got the oven pretty well saturated. Temp the next morning was around 550-575, and we made some ciabatta. By that afternoon, we were still around 350-400 so my wife threw in a raisin loaf. It came out huge! And very tasty as well.

Finally got around to lighting up the fireplace. Great time hanging out this past weekend with friends. Still have to work on the LV lighting.....for some reason, even though it won't take more than a few hours, there is a mental block here.

Something new for us....neighbor wanted to make a seafood pizza. First one is shrimp and scallops, second one is oysters and lump crab over a pesto sauce. Both came out delicious.

Love the build. I've been debating a fire place instead of a firepit. Great work on everything though. the concrete roof is cool! I might have to do that myself. I'm sure it was fun pouring that high up. Good looking build and food!
