Brick Barbecue Plans

Build your own brick barbecue with free plans. Also plans for barbecue pits.

Brick barbecues are usually made with a lot more grilling space than your standard sized grill, so they are great for cooking for outdoor parties. Also, they are very durable and weather resistant.

Simple Project Steps for Building a Fire Pit

1. Pick the building spot and dig a trench around the edge. A good size for a fire pit is about 4 feet in diameter.
2. Add some gravel in the trench and pack the gravel down firmly.
3. Now you're ready to build the brick wall. Look at one of the plans above for correctly laying the bricks.
4. After the wall is built, it's time add a cap to the top of the wall.
5. For safety, keep some water close by and buy a mesh fire cover to help control the flames.
