Building An Outdoor Bbq Grill
There are several ways to building an outdoor bbq grill. These are some of them. Decide on the location for your bbq grill. Place the 2×4 across the concrete in the center of the area you wish the grill to be. Mark a line along the 2×4 in the direction your grill will face. Lay the BBQ grills in the area you measured earlier. Leave a gap between each brick that is 1/2 inch wide. Mark 3/4 inch wider than the grills so that the brick edges the grills will rest on are included. Mark a line with a level. Dry fit the three back course sides. Dump the dry mortar ingredients into a wheelbarrow. Use a hoe to make a hole in the center. Slowly pour in small amounts of water. Pile mortar on the trowel and fill the bricks by turning the trowel on it’s side and pulling it towards you. Use the tip of the trowel to create a “V” or a furrow in the mortar bed. This aligns the mortar.
Apply a line of mortar along the inside edge of your penciled area. Begin at the corner of the penciled area. Make a second line of mortar parallel to the first, and using your trowel create a V in the mortar. Place the first brick in the mortar and push down to ensure that it is in place.
Use the butter the brick method to butter the next brick to build a bbq grill. Continue bricking the outer area just as you did the inner area. Allow to dry before you place bricks on top. Build many ledges after the third level to allow your grills to sit at different heights. Do this by jutting out the bricks approximately 1/2 inch from the inside edge every other level.
