Ciao Ken, porceilan is good for outdoor, choose the ticker one as there are very tiny tiles as well, the other option is granite tiles, they are becaming cheaper now and they look better...just another option. Hope to start on mine this week end! Carlo

Ken - I went w/ Porcelain. Made it through the winter with no problems. I used the recommended thin set for installation, a little more money but it obviously worked. I found the selection to be very limited, I settled for the attached thumbnail. Carlo, they advised me not to use granite as it will most likely crack in this environment.

Ken,

You're a patient man: good work. Remember, the concrete screws should be just snug, not tight.

Jim

Glad spring has arrived and you're able to start back on this project. I'm also glad to see soot on your entry area, after seeing your video and that draw I saw was great I was wondering if I had to do my chimney area over again. It seems to draw good, I'm wondering if my wood isn't season enough.
I see you have the arch/vent area covered with the blanket, have you noticed that area getting hot?
Enjoy the spring, it will get hot to soon.

Les, I have the same grill, got it at Loews two years ago. A year later I find out that Jenn-aire just slaps their name on it and a so-so company makes it. HD and Loews does the same thing with their wet saws. Haven't had any issues with the grill so pleased it's holding up. All the appliances for our new house were also JA and I'm glad I got their extended warranty - already paid for itself.
We'll use the grill for quick items put plan on using the WFO much more versus the rotassiare.

We went with slate for a rustic look, but I am guessing that it's going to be a bear to keep clean. I'm a slave to fashion.

Ceramic tile sounds perfect. Hearty, good-looking and easy to clean. If you do a good job of sealing the mortar it will keep your counter nice and fresh.

Don't mean to hi-jack this thread, but... RC - do you have the quick disconnects on the gas line. Every once in a while I smell gas and that's where it has to be coming from. When I do the soap and water trick I see nothing.

Thank Carlo! Does the granite or porcelain require any sort of sealer after grouting? I've heard that some natural stone needs to be sealed for outdoor use. I appreciate the advice!

Thanks Les. I have been warned by someone in a home store about using some types of stone. I don't remember which ones are safe. Your porcelain work looks very nice. Thanks for the pic! I definitely won't go wrong going that route.

Actually, most of that soot was from when I started a fire on the landing and hearth trying to dry out my insulation board. I wouldn't touch your vent. It looks great and I'll bet if draws just fine.

Yeah, it gets pretty warm. I probably don't need the blankets, but I had the extra pieces so I threw them on.
