Thanks-it's good to be cooking vice building for a change. Still a lot to do as we've decided we need more counter space next to the oven and a buffet area for guests. So we'll be off to HD sometime for metal studs and backer board, but probably not until it truly warms up again.

Hi,

I am in the planning stages of my oven, but I could not help but love the presentation of your fillet. Do you mind sharing the recipe and how you got it looking so good. Crazy questions...but I am new to all of it .

Thanks,

Sandro

Hi Sandro,

We used a recipe from the book "The Art of Wood Fired Cooking" which was a Christmas present. We use that book as well as many of the e-books and recipes you can find here at the Forno Bravo site.

We're really enjoying cooking and made a couple loaves of hearth bread this past weekend morning after a dinner of pork roast and beans the eve before. I would have built a WFO years before if I would have known then what fun they are and how excellent food cooks in them.

Closing in on the finish-only a few more weekends to go maybe and the base product should be complete. We tore off all the ceramic tile on the island, took down the pony wall extension, put up new WonderBoard, and have all the brick for the counter cut and ready to mortar and grout.

A weekend to mortar and grout, and a weekend to stucco the balance should bring closure on this round. Already thinking of extending a counter to the right of the oven with built in storage, and quite possibly adding back in the sink we demo'd out for the WFO build as running water and sewer are still close by to tie back onto.

Finally done with the WFO project, minus installing two outlets and cover plates, and putting the BBQ back in its place. We color-coated with three bags of SBC and grouted and sealed the brick countertop with the awesome warm Saturday we had yesterday.

Hi Friend-thanks for the kind comment! I see your build is underway and lots of folks in your area are also building. Hang in there and the weather this next weekend is supposed to be stellar! You'll be cooking in short order and enjoy the build even when it seems "it's the song that never ends"!!

Looks great CV! - keep the counter dry in the winter (or really well sealed), our freeze in the winter will play hell on the mortar. Seems like I am out there every year repairing it on my pillars (horizontal brick).
