    That is one pretty table ... what does it say across the back Lavender?

    I'd swap those 'regular' bricks out for fire bricks.

    squeezy, i don't want you to think i'm harassing you. hahah 

    but the fire bricks are really designed for direct radiant heat in a fireplace, where radiant temps can peg 1800-200 for hours on end.

    they offer no real benefit being used as feet under the egg.  in fact, outside where it is wet/damp, your better bet is landscape paving brick.  it will be unaffected by freeze/thaw.

    firebricks aren't so much overkill in this case, it's more a misapplication of their strengths.  just MNSHO

    Well stop then!   =))  I have firebrick, so guess what I'd use should I ever get a table?

    At least you didn't say the table was ugly ...

    :D

    if you have firebrick, by all means use it.  just saying, to go out and buy it purposefully, and to toss aside regular brick, well.  no need.

    oh... one last thing.  fuzzy green meat is perfectly fine. hahaha

    i wash the mold off and keep on going. mold won't harm you (unless it's the penetrating white mold, which is rare)

    bresaola is getting the first flush of mold on it now, as a matter offact.  in three weeks, it'll be just about right.

    ii'll stop correcting you when you stop giving bad info.
    hahahaha

    from the USDA itself... "Molds grow on hams during the long
    curing and drying process because the high salt and low temperatures
    do not inhibit these robust organisms. DO NOT DISCARD the ham. Wash
    it with hot water and scrub off the mold with a stiff vegetable
    brush.
    "

    same for dry aged beef, and other cured meats.

  • Gorgeous table, kudos to your friend!

    I would definitely go for something more substantial under the grill though. Would be a shame to lose that table! ;)
