This project is about outdoor barbeque designs. Building a brick barbeque is easy, but choosing the right bbq design is a challenge, taking into account all the alternatives. There are so many deigns and plans you could choose, that we really recommend you to take a look over the alternatives and to make a short list with the ones that suit your needs. Afterwards, choose the one that fits you budget and the style of your backyard.
If you don’t have an extensive expertise in woodworking or in bricklaying, we recommend you to buy a metal or a stainless steel barbeque. Although these appliances come at a high price, there are designed for this task and you have the guarantee that the meat will be juicy and it will have a great taste. On the other hand, a wood-fired brick barbeque has a wonderful appearance and style.
Outdoor barbeque designs
The first barbeque design you could choose from is about a drum shaped project. In most of the cases you should buy the metal barbeque, as it comes at an affordable price and it is quite hard to replicate one by yourself.
In order to add value to the backyard project, you should build a wooden support, as in the image. Make sure you invest in quality lumber and you adjust the size of the table to your needs.
If you want something lavish, you should take into account the following design. A gas stainless steel barbeque is pricey, but you can cook almost anything in a matter of minutes.
If you build a concrete or a brick structure, you can create a simple but beautiful backyard kitchen. Add a wooden roof to the barbeque if you want to create a shaded are and to protect the stainless still appliances from bad weather.
If you want a traditional design for your outdoor bbq, we recommend you to take into account using bricks and stone. Create a rigid concrete structure, before laying the bricks as in the image.
Top Tip: Adjust the size of the barbeque according to the grill and make sure the walls are plumb. Apply decorative stone to the foundation and to the top of the walls, if you want to get a professional result.
If the previous project is too simple or dull for your tastes, you should take a look over this design. If you like cooked meat in a traditional manner, you should consider making a barbeque smoker.
Top Tip: From our own experience, a brick bbq smoker requires more materials and skills as compared to the previous examples, but the end result and the quality of the structure justifies the investment.
Last but not least, you could build an arched brick barbeque. Therefore, we recommend you to check out this step by step project, if you want to learn more about this design.
This project has numerous advantages, as you will create a lot of storage space, ideal for depositing firewood. You could also add a concrete table to the barbeque, if you want to add a sink or to lay the utensils.
