Build The Best Brick BBQ Place
BBQ place at home will not only provide your family with tasty food, but allow you to accomplish something with your family and have a picnic on your own yard. Making BBQ grill is now more like a ritual, obeyed by many people almost every weekend or holiday and is a reason to invite friends or relatives for a small BBQ party.
Of course, the easiest alternative for you is to buy a gas barbecue, but if you are not looking for an easy way and want to have a do-it-yourself barbecue, the following article will provide you with some tips for the dummies. When considering building a barbecue, you have to choose the perfect place for it. It must be an area somewhere in the backyard far from materials with high flammability and other structures. The moment you find a place you can start digging a 4-6 inch hole in the ground. The size of the BBQ is up to you. The best building materials for BBQ are, were and always will be bricks and sand. They are very firm, safe and will serve you for a very long time.
It’s better to make a concrete foundation. Make a concrete mortar using the right proportions of concrete, water and sand (5 parts of sand to one part of concrete). When the mortar is ready, fill the hole in the ground with it and wait until it dries up. Put the first layer of brick on the edges of the concrete surface, leaving the free space in the middle and on the front edge. Don’t forget to check the levels of the surface with the special leveling gauge. It the layer isn’t even, correct it with the help of concrete mortar.
Choose the necessary height of the brick layers and the design of the construction (it can be double-grilled) and build it till the end. Fix in the grill or several grills and decide what fuel you want to use: wood or coal.
You can also use concrete blocks to built BBQ. The process is pretty much the same, but a bit harder as there is no more mortar to attach the blocks. So you need to put them very carefully with high accuracy. Place the grate on top of the grill, set a fire and you’re ready to cook!
