That is OK, sometimes my wife says I have an incredible grasp on the obvious... But if it gets more complicated I am out of luck.

Yeah I saw him workin the dough busy-busy, i didnt bother him but watched their cook flow and they can really knock them out. Great business model! Their dough is very good but a little strange, lots of almost carbonized (black) bubbles with lighter more properly cooked areas between.
Never heard of Bufalina, will investigate.

Temp info so far:
Morning after Pizza- 490 degrees
24 hours after-400 "on the nose"
36 hours (This morning)- 370
40 hours later (this afternoon) 350 (cooked some stuffed Salmon)
Crazy heat retention but this thing is insulated to the hilt/

He and Steven at Bufalina both make a sourdough, that is what gives it all those tiny spots, and that is exactly the look they are going for.

Sorry I missed you, I got there right after you left. Here is a the jack arch, 4J is the style I would recommend. One full and one 1/2 should give you enough to cover the full 17" over the angle. Hold one pair up there and establish the skew to fit. I would also recommend cutting the top and bottom parallel to angle iron once you have the skew set.


edit-- The link would help:

Progress report:
Started the brick veneer yesterday and worked off and on today. This is a great product, easy to install and looks beautiful. It's made by Eldorado.
With Tom's help with design on the Jack Arch, it will add and interesting element. If I can keep a straight line the rest should go smoothly. Although I am a little nervous about grouting it. That could make or break the look Im going for. I'll start that in the back!

The reason for the white thinset is because thats all HD had at the time and I didnt think it would matter, BUT, if you get any on the face of brick it wont come off so I went back and got gray this morning. Also, I started out spreading it like thinset usually is spread, with a notch trowel, until it was pointed out that I can just butter the brick and stick!

I really like that look Garner. If it was mine I would tuck it with lime mortar or white Type N mortar, then rake it back about 3/16" and finally brush finish. That would replicate old joint work nicely.

Your pointing mix should not be as loose as your thin set. It should stay together when you squeeze it in your hand...a bit like dry clay.

If you use a loose mix and slob it all over those nice brick with a grout bag, I'm putting you on my ignore list.
