Always drill pilot holes before inserting screws or nails, to prevent the wood from splitting. Make sure you follow us on Facebook to be the first that gets our latest plans and for some other exclusive content. Also, follow us on Pinterest to get many ideas for your backyard from all the internet! The first step of the project is to build the frames (this project requires two identical frames) for the outdoor bar.
Top Tip: We strongly recommend you to drill pilot holes at both ends of the slats and countersink the head of the screws.
Attaching the side cladding is a straight forward job, if you follow our instructions and work with attention.
Top Tip: If you countersink the head of the screws, you can easily fill them later with wood filler and get a neat appearance. If you want to organize the bar efficiently, you should take into account building several shelves, as in the image. Top Tip: Use a spirit level to check if the shelves are horizontal and if the splitting panel is plumb. You can see in the image the back of the outdoor bar and how you can use the space efficiently.
Top Tip: Cover the wooden components with several coats of stain or paint, to protect them from wood decay. Read with great care the local building codes, as to place the brick barbeque away from flammable substances, from fences and from your neighbors’ houses.
Smart Tip: If you like to spend time with your friends and family in your backyard, you should consider building a brick barbeque. After you have poured the concrete in the form you have to vibrate it, as to remove the pockets of air. Last but not least, use a straight edge to level the foundation, by pushing it along the sides of the form.
Smart Tip: Use a sponge to clean the excess mortar off the bricks, as after it dries out it will be a lot harder to remove it. Smart Tip: Use a brick jointer to remove the mortar from the bricks and create concave depressions.
Smart Tip: Use a spirit level every time you add another brick, to ensure the walls are plumb and the top is perfectly horizontal. Use the technique described above and place the bricks so they jot out towards the table (they will support the concrete slab). After you have completed the most important steps of the brick barbeque pit construction, you still have to do the finishing touches.
Smart Tip: Before using the adhesive to secure the stone, make sure it is designed for outside use. After you have installed the stone countertop and secured it with adhesive you have to clean the brick barbeque pit with a damp sponge and a bowl of water.


Clean each brick with the sponge, making sure you remove the excess mortar and soak the sponge in water regularly.
Leave the mortar dry out for several days and then install the grill grate and the other accessories into place.
Work with great care and with good judgement to build a wood fired barbeque in under a week. Thank you reading our article about how to build a barbeque pit and we recommend you to check out the rest of our projects.
In addition, if you want to hide the joints, you should take into account using a pocket holes system.
On the contrary, any person with basic woodworking skills can get the job done in just a few hours, if the right materials and tools are used. While in the left compartment, you could build storage shelves for glasses and other small items, in the right size there is enough room to place a cooler box. There shouldn’t be any kinds of gaps between the slats, so make sure you align them properly, before securing them into place. This is a simple woodworking project that can be built in one weekend, including the painting process. In order to build a bar with a neat appearance, we recommend you to fill the holes and the cracks with wood filler.
If you want to see more outdoor plans, I recommend you to check out the rest of the projects. Building a brick bbq pit is easy if you use the right plans for your needs and the most appropriate building techniques. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t build it too far from your home, as most likely you will have to make several trips to your kitchen, to get the meat and beverages.
Therefore, on one hand, you could build a simple bbq by using bricks, mortar and a set of bbq grill accessories, or you can invest more money to equip it with state of the art appliances, such as a smoker, a small refrigerator, outdoor cabinets or a gas pizza oven.
As you can see in the image, you need to build a sturdy foundation and to build brick walls.
Therefore, you could either use a concrete vibrator or hit the form with a hammer several times. If you need to adjust the size of the bricks, we recommend you to rent a wet saw. Starting with the forth course, place the side bricks perpendicularly, to support the grill grate. In this way, you can move the grill up and down according to the fire intensity or according to the food you are cooking. Use a spirit level to make sure the walls are perfectly plumb and the grill grate supports are aligned one with another. As you can see, building a barbeque pit isn’t that difficult, provided you use the right masonry techniques and appropriate plans. In addition, we also suggest you build a table adjacent to the barbeque pit, as in the image. If you follow our tips, your barbeque will have a beautiful design, be highly functional and durable, and add value to your property.


After you have completed the project, you should enjoy it together with your family for many years in a row.
Don’t forget to share our articles with your friends, by using the social media widgets. From our experience, you should always adjust the size and the design of the bar, as to fit your needs and tastes. Drive nails trough the trims or dill pocket holes at both ends of the slats and insert screws. If you are all about rustic charm and you want to keep the costs down, you need to pay attention to these wood bar plans. On the other hand, you have to place the barbeque pit in the right location, therefore we recommend you to let a significant distance from the other structures in your backyard, as they could easily catch fire when cooking meat.
In addition, when planning the outdoor bbq, you should make sure you add a large patio next to it, to have enough space to set a table and several chairs.
If you afford and are you willing to invest a small fortune in these features, you can turn the brick barbeque pit into a real outdoor kitchen and make it an attraction point of your backyard. Before drawing the guidance lines, make sure the grate is located properly and perfectly aligned with the foundation. Next, spread mortar with a trowel and lay a brick at the beginning and another at the end of the course.
In this manner, it will be easier to place the plates and utensils, while cooking the meat.
Use quality materials, making sure they are weather-resistant (cedar, redwood, pine), especially if you are going to place the bar in your garden. Once you are aware of the danger of fire, you could plan the other aspects of your bbq pit, suck as its design, dimensions or features. If you live in an area with hot summer days, it would be a great idea to build the barbeque pit under the shade of a big tree. The possibilities are endless, just use your imagination and customize our plans to fit your needs and tastes perfectly. You can also lay flag stone on top of the last course of bricks, to make your bbq pit unique. The backup idea is a good one and it will work, but the bbq as it is now will work after some fine tuning. For example, you could make it highly functional by building an adjacent table, to store the utensils and the wood while cooking.
