Structurally oven barbecue is made in the form of the usual for us to barbecue. Depending on the installation site, the materials used and the structural design, they are of three types:

  1. Portable barbecue grill:
  • Has mobile or prefabricated so it can be installed anywhere in the suburban area, but also take a timber exits at or near the shore;
  • Brazier for coals produced in the form of a trough from sheet metal;
  • The side walls of the bottom are made holes for blowing air, and the top guide rail with slots is welded styling skewers or lattice barbecue;
  • Bottom set from the solid support thick steel rod or profiled pipes, and the top closing lid is attached;
  • For the convenience of moving heavy metal grills on wheels make, and for decorative purposes is decorated with openwork elements of artistic forging.
A metal grill with the cover can be made from a length of steel pipe.

  1. Fixed barbecue:
  • It has a lot of weight, so set in the ground on its own massive foundations;
  • It can not be moved from place to place, so before installing the need to choose the correct location on the site;
  • The base and the roaster is usually made of brick or stone, and roasting grills, supports and other accessories - Metal;

How to build a brick BBQ BBQ

The building hypermarkets can buy ready-made, portable stoves and barbecues for the garden. At first glance, they seem to be interesting, but they have two major drawbacks:

  • Unjustifiably high price;
  • Not a very robust construction and the same type of non-original design.

With self-manufacturing costs will be much lower and the quality of performance and appearance will depend on your efforts and imagination.

The diagram shows the basic properties of various types of barbecue grills for.

  2. Quarry or sand ravine;
  3. Cement grade M400-M500;
  4. Rebars 8 mm diameter steel reinforcing mesh or a mesh size of 50x50 mm;
  5. Roofing material for waterproofing;
  6. Cutting boards or plywood formwork fabrication.
table_pic_att149316010910 Mortar:
  1. For masonry brick in the bottom of the brazier need mortar of cement, sand and water, in a ratio of 1: 3: 0.85;
  2. Laying frypot and chimney performed on clay-sand mortar;
  3. To do this, 1 part clay is necessary for a day soaked in water;
  4. To add 0.5-1 clay of the sand, and mix well until a smooth dough without dense clumps.
table_pic_att149316011011 bricks:
  1. Burnt brick red - used for masonry structural part brazier and chimney;
  2. Fireclay refractory brick (as pictured) - is applied to the base liner and the side walls of the brazier;
  3. Facing clinker bricks or - can only be used for outdoor decorative finishing.

For the manufacture of countertops need also concrete or stone plate about 50 mm thick.

table_pic_att149316011112 Metal accessories:
  1. Thick steel corner section 40x40 or 50x50 mm;
  2. Cast iron stand proved, boiler or pans;
  3. Grate for baking products - to be made of iron or stainless steel;
  4. Set oven accessories: poker, tongs, tongs, coal and so on.

Step 2: production of foundation

Below is a guide for the construction of a universal brick barbecue. It can be used for cooking barbecue, hot first and second courses, as well as for roasting foods on a grill or barbecue.

Illustration Description of work
table_pic_att149316011613 Preparation of the pit:
  1. On plot remove topsoil;
  2. Dig a rectangular trench depth 500-600 mm;
  3. Dimensions excavation plan should be 100-150 mm larger than the base of the brazier;
  4. Primer on the bottom of the well compacted and to pour sand bed thickness of 300 mm.
Installation of formwork:
  1. On a sandy base bed of roofing or waterproofing thick polyethylene film;
  2. Along the perimeter of the set shuttering boards or thick plywood;
  3. The height of the formwork must be 80-100 mm above ground level;
  4. Inside lay two layers of reinforcing lattice;
  5. The bottom layer must lie on supports 50 mm above the waterproofing layer;
  6. The topsheet is 60-80 mm above the bottom.
table_pic_att149316011714 Pouring the foundation slab:
  1. The concrete formwork pour liquid solution;
  2. So that the plate was not formed voids, sealed concrete vibrator or handle of a shovel;
  3. Flooded with surface cover with plastic wrap and leave for 1-2 weeks for curing.

Step 3: masonry plinth

For laying the bottom of the brazier used red burnt brick and cement-sand mortar. Countertop surface and serving can be produced in one of three ways:

table_pic_att149316011815 Masonry plinth parts:
  1. On the bed foundation waterproofing layer of roofing felt;
  2. For small barbecues clutch rear and side walls can be made thick in a half-brick;
  3. Every 600-700 mm must be installed inside the intermediate support walls;
  4. They will share the basement into separate compartments for the faceting of wood, tableware and so on.
table_pic_att149316011916 Table top of the finished board:
  1. The simplest and most reliable option - finished top made of stone or concrete slab;
  2. It must be pre-cut holes for the brazier, kitchen sink, etc .;
  3. At the upper row of bricks cap applied cement-sand mortar or adhesive composition for exterior applications;
  4. Put on top countertops and put it horizontally in two planes.
table_pic_att149316012117 Monolithic concrete countertop:
  1. If you do not have a suitable plate, it can be made to;
  2. Along the perimeter of the cap set vertical shuttering of boards or plywood
  3. The underside of the apertures to fix horizontal formwork sheets of plywood or OSB (oriented strand board);
  4. Inside lay rebars or welded reinforcing lattice;
  5. Pour the concrete mix and covered with polyethylene film;
  6. The formwork can be removed after 1-2 weeks.
table_pic_att149316012118 Table top of bricks:
  1. On the base steel side walls put corners section 50x50 mm at a distance of 255 mm from each other;
  2. Each area must extend to the side wall not less than 150 mm;
  3. Inside corners on mortar bed bricks adjacent to one another;
  4. On top serving surface decorative layer laid bricks and a barbecue - a layer of fireclay bricks.

Given the substantial changes in temperature, between the bricks and the area must leave a gap width of 3 mm to compensate for thermal expansion.

The total height of the plinth part from the ground level to the upper plane of the countertop must happen within 700-800 mm.

Step 4: brick masonry frypot

Laying in broiler grills for outdoor suburban area is performed on the fireclay brick clay-sand mortar:

table_pic_att149316012319 Open fryer:
  1. Regardless of the type of material and countertops, roasters base necessary to lay a continuous layer of refractory bricks;
  2. In open mangalam rear and side walls is necessary to lay out the series of 5-6 fireclay bricks;
  3. On the front and rear crab barbecue set steel corners with holes for the skewers;
  4. The side walls provide mountings for frying lattice.
table_pic_att149316012420 Closed brazier:
  1. Closed barbecues are made on the same principle;
  2. The main difference - high sidewalls overlapped upper arch and the presence of the chimney.

The chimney can be laid over the barbecue of brick or manufactured as a hood made of stainless steel pipe.
