    I hang over the dying fire

    That's all the bottom insulation you'll need.

    Well, they always say pictures or it didn't happen. The crash of the Hindenburg comes to mind. HYOH.

    Until the last embers are exhausted, and it's -10F.

    That sounds like an excellent idea, given that nobody ever has had their underquilt accidentally touch the ground and everyone prefers waiting until late in the evening for the campfire to die out before hanging their tarp and hammock. And who doesn't want their sleeping gear to forever smell like smoke?

    I'm ready to try my new asbestos hammock
    I was at a Hang and a bushcrafter did Hang over fire pit after fire went out
    He did not burn any gear---maybe smudged black from smoke---and I doubt he kept warm all night from fire pit only

    I ain't gonna risk it

    In the heat of the summer? Absolutely. I wouldn't need more than that either. I'm still not hanging my expensive hammock made of highly flammable technical fabrics above what's left of the fabric's worst enemy. Besides, who wants to wait until that late in the evening when you're already dog tired to set up your gear in the dark? I could live with the smell, but I'm not sure I could live with the inevitable dreams of being roasted on a blinged out spit.

    Had a nice big bed of glowing coals one campout... one aberrant wind gust and we were stomping out sparks 50' away.
    That was after we had to fall backward out of our chairs to avoid the 10' flaming gas plume that blew out on the wind.
    Enjoy, but I'll take a pass on this tip.

    I get busted on this all the time, so I'll just say... that's technically not insulation.

    I have fond memories of when I camped in a tent, and being woken up in the middle of the night by the rising flame of the fire I thought was out (in a fire ring of course). For that reason, I probably won't try your method.

    All I can say is, good luck with that.

    Transporting some of the heated rocks from the fire ring to the area underneath your hammock might be an option.

    I've hung over rocks before when good sites were limited but I prefer not to and don't recommend it. You just never know...
