Yes it's the ash drop. A to Z page and pictures on ash removal, see page liked below. Ash is or can be taken out from the oven after 3-5 plus firings.

Removing wood ash from a wood fired oven? Each left over ash from a previous firing looses its charcoal pieces when it is left inside the oven and the oven is re-fired again. The previous charcoal turns to powder, burns completely. There fore for a garden soil improvement, empty ashes after every firing and spread it on ground.

Warning: some burning red hot embers might still glow in the ash.
