I'm assuming you mean for an outdoor counter. No, it would not be wise to use marble outside...especially thin ( 3 cm ) counter slabs.

Well tonight we had a huge pizza party we cooked 24 pies everything work out great. It's been 4 hours since I raked out the coals and the oven is still 500 degrees. Sorry no pics to post I was to busy cooking pies it's almost as much work as making the oven. The funniest part of the whole night was that no one could believe the pizzas would be done in a minute and a half they were almost afraid to eat them !!! Lol
