Try this site. If you want pure copper, it isn't cheap--upwards of $30 to $50 per 2x2 panel. Although that really isn't any more expensive than my granite for the face of my oven. You can get copper plated tin or plated steel for less, and can find the plate at Home Depot.

We just built the rock facade on up to the ceiling. You can see the 'brick mold' on the ceiling here:



This pic shows the moment of the last piece of rock:



The important safety issue is getting the flu through the roof without transferring heat to the house. A traditional chimney worked for us, with an inside flu liner, an air space and a brick facade with flashing where it exits the roof decking, shown here:

Question Re: Outdoor kitchen in Texas

Needing some ideas and advice for my bar top. My original plan was to use flagstone and set with thinset. That is what i used for the countertops and it is working well.
What is the standard overhang for a bar? (Room necessary to pull up a barstool) I think i will need to use some type or corbels for appearance and support of the bar surface overhang. I can cut triangular shaped corbels from flagstone for corbels and use an angle grinder to make a small recess in the brick to accept the corbel and adhere all that with thinset.
I am concerned that the flagstone overhang may look wimpy because it is only about 1.25" thick. However i keep telling myself that that is the thickness of the granite of the inside kitchen and it looks fine.
I have read several threads about making concrete counters. any suggestions on that? What is the minimum thickness i could use?
Granite (big $$) what about stainless ? (big $$?)
Thanks as always for any advice.
Tracy

I don't know that there are any standards but I have a foot overhang for stool seating on the kitchen counter and it works.

I installed a granite Island in a kitchen remodel. The granite extends 12 inches from the support (on three sides). The granite has a bull nose so the bulk of the material is 3/4 inch and the edge "hangs down: an additional 3/4 inch. I used 3/4 inch thick osb paneling cut to fit between the bull nose on top of the island. I then routed slots to allow inlay of metal stakes (1/4 inch thick by 24 inches long - bought at HD in the concrete framing supply section). I used liquid nails (for granite) to keep the metal in the wood, and to keep the granite in place. I did this to (hopefully) avoid the day a teenager jumps up on the counter to sit and the granite snaps off.
BTY a cool trick for leveling the granite was to put screws up through the wood panel to level. Once the liqid nails hardened - the screws were removed.

Thanks for the input. That is a good idea to support the overhang. I am trying to decide if using corbels cut from brick would support the overhang as well. I think mounting with thinset would hold them. I could use hardiboard like you did instead of OSB since it is outside. Decisions...
What metal stakes did you use? I have only seen rebar stakes at HD.

I used flat steel stakes from HD (next to the rebar). I considered corbels but I have cabinets under the island and little space. So far so good - the granite is in-tact (2 years).

I would not worry too much about the heat on the ceiling...wood can take a fair bit of warmth before it will combust - as long as there are no naked flames around. You could get a sheet of thin stainless steel and fix that on the ceiling above the oven but space it off the ceiling by one inch.
I would see what the situation is after you have had a few fires in the oven, this will give you an idea of what the risks may be?

You can use a piece of 5/8" fire core gypsum (sheetrock) for you spacer. Even 1/2" regular sheetrock would buy some time for a direct flame impingement.
