Building backyard barbecue pit started during the 1950’s. Today, many homeowners still consider building their own backyard BBQ pit in form of commercial barbecue grills. This quick solution is created to fit busy lifestyles. On the other hand, building your own pit the traditional way may be another way to create a bonding moment for the whole family. And then your family and friends could have a more wonderful time grilling tasty barbecue recipes in your own backyard.

Before building your own BBQ pit, decide first what kind of pit you wanted to construct whether brick BBQ pit or metal BBQ pit. You also firstly have to survey the size of your backyard whether it would fit the type of pit you are having.

The next thing to consider is where to put the pit in your backyard. Tantamount to this is the distance of the pit to your kitchen – it should not be too near or too far. Not too near because the smoke and heat may damage your property, and not too far because it will be tiresome to go back and forth to your kitchen. Consider also your neighbors. Do not build your pit near their homes to avoid smoke from permeating inside their premises while you are grilling. So it is advisable to check where the wind blows to avoid complaints from them.

Think about the size of your backyard and the design of the BBQ pit you wanted to make. You may add shelf for your barbecue utensils or simply install hooks that are just within your reach for easier grilling and it will also help you save some space.

Before building your BBQ pit, it is necessary to soak the bricks overnight to make certain that they are wet because dry bricks will not bind together. Build the grill’s strong foundation. If you need to cement the place, you can ask help from the right person who can get your job done. They can construct it for you with ease and less mess.

If you want to try constructing it yourself then follow these steps. Dig a hole in your backyard about ten inches deep and around three by five feet trench. Pour gravel on the trench about two to three inches high then spread the mortar and water mixture on it about two inches thick. Lay the cinder blocks on the mortar’s edges and fill all the gaps and the holes of the cinder blocks with wet mortar mixture. Remove the excess mortar to even out the pit’s wall.

Place a metal cylinder on the stratum of bricks if you desired to have a metal BBQ pit. Then fit the grill on the metal furnace. But if you prefer to have a brick BBQ pit, additional layers of mortar and bricks are needed until the desired height is reached. Then add the grill using metal braces once it dries.

Building a backyard barbecue pit could be a sort of family bonding. Enjoy building it with your family and reap the rewards of satisfaction and worthwhile experience after finishing your own BBQ pit. You are now ready to spend an exciting weekend grilling and eating your favorite luscious barbecue!
