Hello all. Looking for your opinion here. So I’m enclosing my oven with a roof and brick veneer walls. The roof extends past the door opening for keeping rain away from the oven opening and for looks. The sheathing I’m using is cement board from Perma Base.
So my dilemma is I still get smoke coming out from the door opening. Not much but enough to create soot out side in front of the oven. I was thinking instead brick veneer I should put a smooth granite tile so it easy to clean. Or something like that. If I go with full brick veneer I think it will be hard to clean because it’s rough.
My question is. Is there a special outdoor tile I have to use? Should I use stander polymer mortar to attach it? Or do I need to put a Heat Stop mortar or a mortar they use for indoor applications when putting tile to the front of fireplaces. That particular thin set is rated for 500 degrees.
