Since street brick stoves and barbecues are not capital buildings, their choice and construction are not too stringent. However, it is necessary to take into account a number of technical parameters, trying to focus not on the beauty and attractiveness of the model or its saturation with various functions and devices. The outdoor stove must be functional, comfortable, must solve the tasks and fit into the design of the site.
Today there are a huge number of barbecue projects, such as corner models, with a roof and chimney, with a gazebo, a cauldron, a smokehouse, a hood. At the request of the customer, such a complex can be equipped with a hob, sink. Such complex projects should be carried out by specialists, since even a simple brick grill with a very simple construction requires laying the foundation with a depth of 50-70 cm, not to mention complex complex models. Each of these projects should be well thought out, weighed and worked out so that you do not pay extra money.
When ordering a construction service of a barbecue complex made of bricks, it is necessary to consider that the basis of the building is the supporting walls with a brazier and a place for storing firewood. If desired, additional extensions can be built on the sides of the central structure: worktop, smokehouse, Russian stove, hob, tandoor, sink.

The next stage of construction - site preparation for the brazier and installation of the foundation . The quality and durability of the structure will depend on the quality of the foundation. Therefore, preparatory and excavation work should be given special attention. After installation of the foundation, it is necessary to let it "settle", starting the next stage of work only after a few days.
The next step is brick laying . As a rule, masters are guided in this process, especially for large and complex complexes, by drawing-orders, which indicate in what sequence and how the brickwork is made.
You can see the whole process of the furnace construction in the video:
The most important stage of work is masonry brazier . It is advisable for her to use the most heat-resistant brick (chamotte). For the construction of the rest of the structure, ceramic or clinker bricks are used.

The order drawings, which are developed together with the design project, will be of great help in this. These drawings indicate how many bricks, what brand and in what sequence will be installed during laying. Standard brick block sizes are 25x12x6.5 cm, so based on these data and the size of the future structure, it is easy to make a fairly accurate calculation.
