It was getting warm days and summer residents hurry totheir plots. Comes Spring worries. But in the general bustle important to feel the charm of the awakening of nature, breathe in deeply the pure air, devoid of urban smog and fumes. Work work, but we are so committed to her for a week, and a trip to the country should, first of all, fun. Any departure of the nature we have accompanied the traditional barbecue. So why not build on the site of a brick BBQ with your hands? It can always be used as intended. After all, who knows how to have a good rest, and will work with the soul!
When we only have an idea how to dobarbecue made of bricks, you should immediately mentally tied to the construction of this area. And the size and appearance of construction may depend on where it will be located.
General requirements for the site are simple:
- area should be flat;
- consider the wind rose to cooking smoke does not disturb neighbors, did not get to the recreation area, or to the house and cook strangled;
- the proximity of the site to the house needed, because it is easier to provide it with water and light, in addition, do not have far to carry the dishes and products.
Immediately it should plan the entire area for picnics.
Picnic Area in the country should not be overloaded facilities. Enough of the brick barbecue, coasters products, comfortable benches and portable table
Barbecue - it's not even a barbecue where the stove designpipe necessarily present. This is an open and easy construction. However, there are also complicated construction having more than one working surface, and two are located on either side of the frypot. The structure of the combined model can include an oven, grill and smokehouse. If supplied with water, and need washing.
The easiest option, when the brick barbecuecarved in the form of a core, which houses the roaster and grill for meat or rests for skewers. However, without the work surface to be uncomfortable: there is no place to put the dishes, foods and spices, which are used in the preparation of a shish kebab. Therefore it is necessary to provide for her, too.
Each of these barbecues are not overloaded with features, but the one which has the working surface is still a little more comfortable
In principle, there are no drawings for simplebrick barbecues is not necessary, except for the accurate calculation of material requirements. Use a sketch with dimensions, it will help you navigate.
For the construction will be needed:
- slaked lime;
- reinforcing bars or reinforcing mesh;
- wire to reinforce masonry;
- metal corners;
- heat-resistant bricks.
Where the bricks will not be exposed to strongheating, expensive heat-resistant bricks can be changed to the usual red. For broiler pan will need metal and grille. We do not forget about the tile that will be used as a countertop.
It is necessary to prepare two kinds of solution: for the foundations and masonry. You can simplify your work and use the ready-mix for masonry mortar
It is a mistake to believe that tight enoughcompacted area, fill it with gravel and lay paving slabs to hold the base under the grill ready. Any progress of soil can lead to the destruction of buildings. It would be unfortunate wasted time and materials. Therefore, we will not rush and Fill the solid foundation.
Choosing a small but functional structure,whose base 120h120sm. It will be sufficient. Mark up prepared for the construction work site using stakes and twine. Digs a pit specified size and depth of 25cm. Set the formwork, which fill a solution made from 1 part per three parts sand cement.
The foundation provides the strength of the construction as a whole, so when its construction need not hurry: sooner than two weeks from the date of filling it will not be ready
It is imperative to reinforce the foundation. For this purpose one can use the reinforcing bars or reinforcing mesh. If you choose a grid, then it is necessary to lay twice. First, pour a solution of one-third of the height of the base, then place a layer of the grid, then fill the base by one-third and more lined another layer of mesh, and then fill the base up to its full size.
If at the base of the rods will be placed, thenthey are placed after pouring half the base. Evenly spread out on three rods 100-105sm length, and then pour the rest of the volume. To subsequently rainwater flowed freely from the walls of the barbecue, you can make a site with a small (1 cm) bias. To scored foundation strength, it is left for two weeks at rest.
If we want to build a BBQ, but quicklyaccurately, you need to make a kind of "fitting". To this end, ready for future work laid the foundation of a number of dry bricks. This preliminary estimation allows to continue to use only half and whole blocks. If the grille and sump have been prepared by us in advance, be taken into account in the future construction of the exact dimensions. Line masonry encircled future is fixed and will be for us a binding guideline.
The first row of bricks needed for trying to spread dry, but taking into account what will be a solution between the bricks
Brick is hygroscopic: it absorbs moisture easily. If it is not pre-prepared for the upcoming works, it can absorb all of the moisture from the masonry mortar. Construction will fragile. To avoid this, it is good to water the day before the brick works. His or pour water in containers or carefully pour using a garden hose. Before starting work, the bricks must be wet from the inside and the outside dried up.
Prepare the mortar at the rate of 1 partcement, 3 parts sand and one quarter of the slaked lime. The consistency of the mortar should resemble a thick cream. It remains to double-check all measurements and put a brick on the prepared mortar in a strictly scheduled pre-order. Between the bricks, the space should be well filled with a solution. To reliably blocks imbedded in the solution, they should whack the top handle trowel or hammer.
The first row of buildings serves as a reference for allfollow-up, which will be installed in a staggered manner: each subsequent glad to get shifted relative to the previous half-brick. To begin with you need to lay out a number of angles, and then fill in the side walls.
Masonry mortar should be distributed between the rows and do not forget about the side surfaces of the bricks, the excess is carefully removed
Plane structures need to be checked regularly,using for this purpose the building level and plumb. This should be done at least every three rows, otherwise the building can get skewed. The clutch must be reinforced at the corner joints of metal wire. If additional trim barbecue is not scheduled, you can use a piece of garden hose to make the seams masonry neat appearance.
For the base under the brazier is needed betweenopposite walls put metal corners or reinforcing rods. They laid the foundation and furnace bricks. We played that role a metal tray. The main condition is that the furnace can be easily cleaned from the ash.
In the area of the furnace should be left blanksolution side gaps in the brickwork. This will ensure that the air intake chamber. After all, without the flow of oxygen fuel combustion process is impossible.
Construction and installation of broiler pan, grill and table tops - is the finishing touches. Their quality depends on the appearance of buildings, and your impression of the work done
The grid can be mounted on metalrods, which are known to assemble into a brick wall, or on ledges most masonry. Such projections are formed when the bricks are not laid along and across the wall. It is necessary that they protrude into the fryer at the same level.
Table top should be in harmony with the general viewresulting stove and be comfortable to use. You can take a solid floor or paving slabs. For the working surface it is important that it was strong and well washed.
The work is almost finished, but experts advise two weeks to allow your brazier to dry before starting its operation
If it was planned to place the barbecue locationbring water and drain them better to plan ahead, because the pipe is easier to display through the base. So they are less noticeable, and the general form of construction will be more aesthetic. Not be amiss and site lighting. In the open-air summer vacation campaign with better barbecue in the evening, when it is not hot. Now that you know how to quickly and easily build a brick barbecue.
