Build a Stone Grill

This outdoor barbecue grill looks great! You'll enjoy years of backyard barbecue parties using it.

| April/May 2001

This stone grill uses a 16-inch-by-32-inch drop-in grill unit with a built-in charcoal tray that adjusts up and down to regulate the amount of heat at the cooking surface. The outdoor barbecue grill is a beautiful addition to your outdoor kitchen or the perfect spot for cooking during your backyard barbecue parties. 

We built firebricks around the grill unit and used fire clay mortar or refractory cement to joint them in place. For layout and planning purposes, the nominal size of these bricks is 9 inches by 2 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches. If your fire bricks need to be cut, have a masonry supply store do it, or use the old hammer and chisel after scribing the cut line.

To construct the inner core you'll need common concrete building blocks, sized 12 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches. The cap or top of the structure is entirely up to your discretion. The most common materials used are flagstone, red brick or simply a leveled surface of cement. No matter what material you select, be sure to seal it with a good coat of waterproofing masonry sealer.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own stone grill – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
