Building one of our Masonry BBQs couldn’t be easier! They are all delivered in separate sections on a pallet. These pre-built sections simply need stacking on top of each other with some adhesive to secure each piece firmly in place. Our Mediterrani Masonry BBQs already come with adhesive included. For other styles like the Mussalla, Rondo or Tampere use fire proof silicone or Fire proof cement as an adhesive, which are both widely available from most DIY stores.
The first step when taking delivery of your Masonry BBQ is to check over all pieces and ensure no damage has occurred in transit. This should be done as soon as you receive the pallet from the driver which is why there must be someone at home to receive the delivery in person. If there are any problems call us on 01522 704505 and we will assist.
Prepare the area where the foot of the BBQ will be and excavate it to a depth of 15cm minimum, depending on the type of ground you are working with. Fill the area with gravel or stone and tamper it to form a hard base. Fill with cement to the level of the ground. Allow this to dry or cure for at least 24hrs.
Now you can start to build the masonry components of your BBQ, depending on the type you choose, the lower part or the “base” will be first. Do a dry run so you can check for level and ensure that you can see how it assembles together. Once satisfied use the silicone based adhesive or a refractory cement to firmly fix the components in to place.
You are now ready to assemble the firepit part of your BBQ. It is important to get the distances between the two walls correct, we recommended using your steel grills as a guide to ensuring the firewalls are the correct distance apart before applying adhesive or cement. Also check that the rear wall fits in and you familiarise yourself with the orientation of this.
Now you are ready to assemble the chimney securely on to the fire pit. It is best to ensure that all of the cement or adhesive is dry before doing this and you have people around to help because of the weight. It is best to take the chimney to the height of the BBQ and slide it on from front to back. The adhesive needs to be placed onto the top of the firepit walls rather than the base of the chimney. Make sure the chimney sits nice and square on top of the fireplace.
Insert any of the BBQ grills, rotisseries that are supplied and prepare to have your first BBQ
