Build-It-Yourself: Brick BBQ Grill

brick-grill-bbq.jpg
It’s getting a bit cool for outdoor grilling but if you’re still up for it and live in a warm climate then BBQ is always an option. If you are need to get your grill on but have no grill why not build your own.


This outdoor brick bbq grill from Readymade is easy to build and requires a few bricks, grill, and plywood. Just make sure the grill is solid and on steady ground.

      Well, it’s Labor Day. Did you find any good instructions?

    It really doesn’t need instructions; you can just go by the picture. Each “leg” has 20 bricks, and you can see how they’re stacked. The top part uses 36 bricks, and ditto for seeing how they’re stacked. The hardest part is to just measure the size of the wood, or get a piece you know is more than large enough, and just cut it to size. I’d take the grill from an old oven, or you could buy a new one. Again, just measure. Seems pretty easy.
