Love noisy fun with friends, with a kebab? Then you should think about building a stone brazier, and you can do it yourself! Let's see what a stone grill is, what tools and materials are needed for its construction, and also find out what the construction technology is about.
So, a stone brazier is a construction made of natural stone or heat-resistant brick. It should be designed with the technological features of the laying. In this case, you can build a simple option - in the open air, and its more complex counterpart, erected under cover.
A piece of architectural art made with one's own hands may consist of a hearth with a grate, a spacious cooking area, a smokehouse, an oven, and roomy and convenient shelves. In addition, there may be provided a place for firewood, a cauldron for storing water, a chimney and, of course, a sink. Such a structure can be used all year round, not excluding even winter time. On the shelves, you can grow all kinds of plants, such as evergreens.
The place for the barbecue must be carefully selected, this plays an important role. The inconvenient location of the brazier will subsequently be impossible to compensate. The only option in this case is to choose a new place taking into account the previous inconveniences and rebuild the barbecue, and the old one to disassemble. Agree that this entails additional effort and loss of time. To check the convenience of the place, you can make a temporary grill or use a portable one. Try to take into account potentially dangerous factors, for example, the proximity of the barbecue near the house or a very low location of the tree branches near the barbecue. Among the shortcomings can be attributed, and the proximity of the cesspool, which during the holidays can please guests or children, as well as the excessive distance of the recreation area from the home.
What kind of tool is needed
V The set of tools for building a stone barbecue you should have:
Before starting the construction of the stone barbecue, the initial material, that is, the stone, must first be processed with hand tools. This process is inefficient and rather laborious.
However, the tool for this job doesn’t cost much, which allows replacing it quickly in case of a breakdown.
The plan of the brazier
For each construction object you need a project and the brazier is no exception . Perhaps only a stove can handle this task best of all. If you do not possess such skills, then order the project in a specialized organization. In addition to the drawing itself, you will be provided with a technical task, which will be a step-by-step description of the work, along with the diagrams
. After viewing the drawings and approving the project, you can begin the construction process. With the help of the drawn scheme, you will visually imagine the future brazier, which will significantly save time during the construction of the structure. The picture is made on 2 sections from the inside.
Brazier in the context of
Descriptions of orderings should be present in the project. For successful work, carefully review the provided drawing, because each individual stone is clearly marked on it.
Fulfilling the procedures, strictly follow the instructions of experts! Otherwise, even a deviation, seemingly insignificant, will bring a lot of trouble during the operation of the brazier.
Filling the foundation
Whichever brazier you choose: just a rectangular structure or an indoor structure , you should take care to build a quality foundation. If you are building a simple structure, the base can be made of cobblestones on cement mortar. If the brazier will have a height greater than 1 m, then the foundation will need to be built below the level of soil freezing. Otherwise, the upper part of the structure may tilt due to swelling of the frozen soil.
If, on a plot that belongs to you, clay soil, then pour the concrete solution directly into the dug indentation. Do not reach the edges of the pit about 15 cm. Now install the formwork, so you can create a flat rectangular shape. If the soil is mostly sandy, then install the formwork immediately.After the foundation has cured, it can be removed. As for waterproofing, it should be done with the help of yellow, red or white clay.
After the foundation has completely hardened, you can proceed to the construction of the walls of the brazier. The laying of stones at the same time practically does not differ from that used in the construction of conventional furnaces. Chalk cord mark the base. In this case, the connecting material for stones should be cement. Check the level of the water level structure. To make the corners even, make a wooden frame. Install it at the edges of the building.
Upon completion of construction work, pay attention to the aesthetic design of the barbecue. Think over its design, for example, facing and other decorative elements. Now your grill is ready! Hurry up to please your friends with delicious dishes!
