Brick Barbecue for Your Garden

If you have been checking out our new projects and are inspired by the idea of building a brick barbecue in your garden you might want to check out some ideas for how it could look.

You will of course need to buy some accessories such as a grill and a charcoal tray, you can find lots of examples on the web including designs like this one we found on ebay, in stainless steel which won’t rust in the UK climate!

BBQ grill fittings for brick BBQ’s are readily available online

Serious Outdoor Cooking

If you are a more adventurous type of cook you might want to add in a more swanky style of barbecue such as this one below which we found on Pinterest. Although you might want to think about some form of cover for the winter/UK summer storms!

Charcoal Oven and Grill

Or you could add in a charcoal oven to the design – which could be added by simply slotting onto the brick grill holders as described in our building a brick barbecue project. The beauty of this is it can be easily removed and stored away in bad weather.

Outdoor Storage and More

You might want to add in some storage to your outdoor cooking area – you can get drawers and cupboards, bar fittings and even fridges to complement your built in barbecue.

We like this option of storage with a gas burner that we found on, so you can heat beans or prepare Moules Marinere (depending on your outdoor kitchen prowess).

If you are smitten with the ‘Big Green Egg’ outdoor cooker then we can think of no better example of a permanent home than this stylish framework we spotted on

If you haven’t heard about the amazing properties of the Big Green Egg you can read more on their website.

Add Shelter and a Chimney

If you have more advanced bricklaying skills then you could go in for more complex designs for your built-in barbeque. You could modify this design that we spotted on Pinterest to have more shelter for the cook, so that they can avoid sunburn or showers!
