Internal stove temperatures

Anyone have any idea what the maximum internal temperature reached inside a coal stove are? Just a curiosity more than anything. I don't have a thermometer that I can use that would go high enough but maybe one of you guys do.
Thanks.

Since it's just a guess, my guess is 1,300 to 1,400 degrees right in amongst the hot coals themselves.

My Craftsman InfraRed maxes out at 1000, and freaks out when I shoot the fire. My Keystoker 90 surfaces max out around 500, but generally run 300 to 400 degree range when cruising.

I've read that under perfect conditions coal can burn at temps over 3000 degrees. Clinkers usually form around 2100-2500 degrees depending on how iron rich the coal is.

You can melt steel if you push it, I'd say 2500°+. Anthracite can generate temps close to the 5K range under the right conditions
