The most traditional dish of all feasts during this period the kebabs. Unfortunately, natural phenomena are not subject to human laws. Sometimes on holidays it rains.

What is better to do the roof?

The most common material for the canopy or roof is used sheet iron. Making a choice, you should pay special attention to the selected material properties. It needs:

  • to be fire-resistant and heat-resistant;
  • don’t be afraid of corrosion;
  • do not respond to changes in temperature and humidity.
The roof of corrugated Board

Grill with a roof made of corrugated sheet looks neat, it is functional and comfortable: nothing more, but everything you need is there

Often for the construction of a canopy used corrugated sheet – corrugated sheet metal, is provided with a special polymer coating. A special coating prevents the rusting corrugated sheets and makes it quite attractive. You can choose the color of decking that will best fit the overall style of the site.

Corrugated sheet

A variety of bright, good corrosion-protected, corrugated Board would fit well in any style will always find a place and will have to court

The frame of the canopy made by welding from tube or metal profile.
For the roof you can even use slate, ceramic or metal. But cell carbonate for this purpose is not suitable. It can not only warp from high temperatures, but also ignited.

If the canopy is being constructed to protect the products and coals from wind and rain, you need to make the roof wider and longer than the grill. Design coals should be completely closed, so buy the material stock. To correctly calculate the material requirement and not to waste money or time, you need to sketch a working drawing of the chosen grill with roof.

Looks interesting semi-circular roof, which is used in the model below, the grill. Arch of the canopy is made so that the water do not linger on it, flows down on both sides, not getting on the brazier.

The shape of the roofs, covering the grill, may be different. They do one – and gable, semi-circular, light and thorough, without a pipe and with the pipe. But on the latest models it is worth to pay special attention.


Exhaust pipe located over the two foci of the grill, allows you to divert the smoke creates the necessary for the preparation of traction and protects from rain

Chimney constructed directly over the grill, also protects it from the weather. But the smoke box of a pyramidal shape and the pipe 2-3 feet in length and can provide excellent traction. Then, in addition to the obstruction for rain, you can get excellent protection from the smoke. It will no longer interfere with the cook.

Beautiful grill with roof

If we talk about the beauty of the structures, this grill deserves special attention: the process of preparing the coals on it is mesmerizing

There is another function of the roof that needs to be taken into account when choosing its form: the structure should look seamless, harmonious and pretty. It should be enjoyed, not to annoy with your presence.

The design of the grill from the chimney

If you do a roasting pan covered with his own hands, is not such an important difference in the price of commercial and improvised devices. Importantly, the product was convenient to use and pleasing to its owner a long service life. All these requirements are fully consistent with a construction based on a thick-walled tube equipped with canopy.

Select the basis of the structure

A tube 35 cm in diameter, take the basis and make it a country grill with a roof. The advantage of a thick metal is that even after several years of active service, it will not lose its qualities: not deformed and not rust away. The length of the product depends on the preparation of the volume of food will be calculated construction. Pipe length-the basics on photo is 95 cm.

Grill covered, made from pipe

Grill durability and functionality: a building with proper care, will last even more than a decade

Cut the lid of the grill

Before you cut the lid, decide why we need it. If we use the usual device without the cover, the coals are spent wasteful: after cooking them you have to either pour water or left to burn to the ground. But the coals could still be useful.

Closing the lid and the hatch for blowing located at the side of the grill, we stop the access of oxygen to the point of combustion. The burning stops, but the coals do not burn through to the end. They will be available later. You can leave a small gap below the coals were smouldering, but not extinguished. This is done in case the cooking process is interrupted for a while.

Food cooked on the grill

Rice and fish cooked on the grill, arouse appetite, and the desire to enjoy food, besides such foods find it useful even doctors

So, we need cover, and we cut with a grinder. Attached to the main part of the pipe with door hinges. Open it with the handle, so it would be nice to include (can be door).

Oh, what legs!

Feet to do of this length that will suit the cook. It should be comfortable to use a Dutch oven without bending, no squatting, no lifting his hands up. When the arms bent at the elbows at a right angle, it becomes immediately obvious what height to make the legs.

Cooking in the streets is fraught with all sorts of unforeseen circumstances. Any gust of wind can ruin a dish with sand or put on the coals garbage. The legs are the right length and help to avoid these troubles.

The roof or canopy?

In this case, preference is given to the canopy. Why? This canopy protects you from the vagaries of the weather, but not to keep the smoke from the coals does not allow it to accumulate and poison the cook. But the rain under the canopy does not penetrate. The chef can be sure that the coals do not go out, and the products will not get wet. Well, if the angle of the canopy and the height of its attachment may change. Then generally it can be set as convenient at this particular moment.

The internal arrangement of the brazier

Holders of suitable length for installation of the grill must be welded from the corners, metal rods or plates with a width of 2-3 cm. they can put the finished unit, which can be cut from a metal fence, for example. The thickness of 2-3 mm is sufficient in order for it to not burn through for a long time. Removable grate makes it easier to clean the space under it.

Some additional tips

This grill has an extra device that allows you to cook rice in a pot. It turns out crumbly and wonderfully fragrant. The hatch of the jet, located at the side of the grill and the grate under the coals allow to regulate intensity of combustion.

For effective ignition you must open the side gate. The air will go in the space under the grate, penetrating his hole. The oxygen stimulates the combustion and raises the temperature of the cooking.

Capital grill under the roof

All grills are different, but the roof may be different from each other: to be small peaks and sprawling canopies, under which excellent is the entire leisure area

Grill and roof and hood

But this grill to the roof is needed as protection from the weather, because the smoke successfully removes self-extractor

In some cases to use a gas stove is really nice, but the shashlik or plov is better to cook over an open fire. Never electricity or gas will not be able to give the meat an exceptional flavour and spice that can give only the heat from charcoal.
