Nashville Company Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Manufacture Line of Backyard Brick Ovens and Artisan Stone Grills
Nashville, TN – With higher temperatures, faster cooking times, puffy savory crust, crispy toppings and smoky flavor, nothing tastes quite as delicious as pizza baked in a real brick oven. Nashville-based Tennessee Stone & Design (TNSD) has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help bring mobile brick ovens to chefs in backyards, food trucks, campgrounds and more – all across America. More information can be found at https://tn-sd.com/kickstarter/.
TNSD’s line of outdoor cooking products allows any backyard chef to turn their outdoor table, round kettle grill or outdoor kitchen bay into a fully-functional, commercial-grade brick pizza oven. Their flagship product, the Relic Oven, is both portable and modular, made from advanced one-of-a-kind materials, and built in-house by TNSD’s trained craftsmen.
“After years of designing, testing, prototype-building and sleepless nights, we have our designs and manufacturing process to the point we are ready to move into higher volume production,” said B.T. Ulrich, president and founder of TNSD.
To get the Relic Oven and other products into the hands of brick oven chefs around the world, TNSD will need to build and install manufacturing equipment necessary to manufacture products on a larger scale.
“We will also hire and train the craftsmen who enjoy making our products as much as we hope backyard and commercial chefs will enjoy using them,” Ulrich said. “That is why we have started this Kickstarter campaign.”
The campaign runs until June 20, 2016, offering deep discounts, personalized limited edition products, giveaways and opportunity to help design future products.
The Relic’s design allows it to set up quickly on both flat outdoor surfaces or on a favorite 22’’ Weber ™ Grill, bringing the joy of brick oven cooking to new places and new audiences. TNSD is also releasing other cooking products, such as ultra-durable baking stones, custom grill mounts for Weber™ grills and outdoor kitchens, pizza peels, stone coasters
and more. Future designs that re-imagine other classic grill and oven designs with TNSD’s ultra-durable materials are also underway.
The company follows a hands-on DIY approach to product development, focusing on both advanced R&D and simple, craftsman-like attention to quality. TNSD is located in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood in Nashville, TN.
