Thanks for the welcome.
We're gutting our kitchen and opening the family room to the living room which also gives me more kitchen space. 48" 6 burner + charbroiler AG Wolf, 1200 CFM Wolf Hood, Thermador Wall oven and Microwave, Bosch DW, 8' Island with prep sink w/disposal allowing work areas for two on both sides of the sink (I'm a lefty so this works well), Whirlpool Sidekicks as they offer a lot of space and I was running out of budget. Blue Star ranges were very appealing, but I'm saving quite a bit on the refrigeration and DW because I'm buying the Wolf equipment. Only one place for a Blue Star in Milwaukee, and that's the only residential equipment they sell. Demo starts 7/10.
I cook often with a friend. I have another friend who is a CIA grad and restaurant owner in Milwaukee, and like to cook with him when he gets time off, which isn't often. I actually got him in the business 20 years ago when I ran a custard/pizza/sandwich place my family owned. He was my assistant manager. He's slightly more skilled than I am now, to say the least. LOL.
Sorry for the long post. I'm known for them a few other places. I read quite a few threads last night and really enjoy the site. Thanks again for the welcome.
