The brick brazier is a necessary attribute of a country house, on it it is possible to prepare tasty healthy food with a fragrant smoke. What can I say! Even the most ordinary meat, fish and vegetable dish does not compare with the food that is prepared on a conventional hob.
As for the location of the barbecue, it should be built so that the wind carries the smoke from the house towards the wasteland.
The brazier next to the arbor looks harmoniously - it is very convenient. Thus, it is possible to observe the process of cooking without interruption from the feast.
Drawing of a brick barbecue
The first stage is the creation of a project and the selection of a site, as well as the purchase of materials necessary for the construction.
The second stage is the construction of the mangal. Before starting the construction work, it is necessary to prepare construction equipment, auxiliary equipment, necessary material and to be patient and attentive, since it will be necessary to read the diagram.
So, let's start with a complete set of building material. You will need refractory bricks, wooden elements for the batten, cement-based glue for decorative heat-resistant tiles, sand, cement, gravel, rubble stone. Pieces of tiles and mesh of reinforcement, sheet plywood. And, of course, you will not do without a concrete mixer, buckets, shovels and bayonet shovels, a hammer and a construction level.
When the preparatory work is completed and assembled all the necessary equipment, proceed to the device foundation - this is the basis of the above-ground structure. The more qualitative the foundation will be, the more durable the construction will be.
The foundation for the brick brazier
The foundation for the brazier will be arranged at a depth of 50-60 see and no deeper. For it will need to dig a trench and create a sand pillow - this will be 1 layer of the foundation.
On top of the sand cushion, a grid of reinforcement is laid in 10 mm and formwork is arranged. The formwork is formed from sheet plywood and poured with concrete solution. After 48 hours, when the concrete formwork grabs, you can proceed to the device waterproofing layer. The waterproofing layer can be created using ordinary film or sheet of roofing material.
Construction of base
The base of mangal can be anything depends on your financial capabilities and preferences.
The simple construction of the basement consists of a firewood compartment, a meat cooking compartment and a cutting compartment. If you are a fan of kebabs, then in that case the barbecue design is more complex and it is arranged permanently. In this case, when you do not have special skills, you can experiment on a primitive construction.
Properly building a brazier
Prepare the cement mortar with the addition of special heat-resistant aggregates, level and brick and start laying the first row of the cap. Align the first row to level, proceed to the laying of the second row, leading the butt joints to the side. Laying solid rows to be made to the level where the hearth will be.
The center is arranged according to the foundation technology. The only difference is that the formwork will be constructed in the inner part of the basement. The side parts of the base are filled with protrusions, they will serve as grooves for the grille.
The grooves must be filled at various levels in order to be able to control the level of heat.
Next, wind walls are erected and a brazier pipe is laid. The pipe is a heavy element, respectively, it must be installed on the supporting columns. The lower part of the pipe should be wider than the upper part. The upper part of the pipe is laid out of four bricks and closed with heat-resistant steel.
But, if there is no desire to build a brick pipe, you can use a metal pipe. In this case, you can create an interesting design barbecue, combining several types of material in a single design.
In order for precipitation to fall into the hearth and not to destroy the structure, it is necessary to make a roof over the brazier.
Lined barbecue with a canopy
You can also build a canopy, which can be different designs. It is installed on a monolithic wall, stone stands or metal supports.The visor must be constructed of heat-resistant iron, and the outer part must be covered with a waterproofing layer.
You can start decorating. The ideal option would be clinker tiles, forged items and cast iron. Do not deprive of attention and the site, it should also be in harmony with the design of the barbecue.
