When assembling your masonry barbecue you will require the following materials: Mortar (20% fine sand and 20% low strength cement), a roller to achieve a textured finish, a trowel, a brush, nylon cloth, quartz colour and a plasterer’s trowel.
This masonry barbecue is made from sturdy concrete with refractory qualities. This means it's suitable for use in high heat environments, perfect for charcoal barbecues. Thanks to its size, this barbecue is sure to become a treasured garden focal point, a place for guests to congregate and enjoy your garden as well as your food.
Three storage shelves are built into the barbecue, situated beneath the grill. This allows you to keep your food and utensils within easy reach. The bottom shelf can be used for larger options, perhaps stacks of plates, ready to put your delicious, sizzling hot food on to, whereas the thinner shelf would be better for utensils and useful barbecuing equipment.
This fantastic flue helps to funnel smoke up and away from you and your guests, which allows you to enjoy the fresh evening air without lots of smoke billowing out.
The workspace on this premium masonry barbecue has been custom designed and manufactured with a brushed antique effect, giving your barbecue a luxury feel and appearance, perfect for cooking in style and comfort. It has also been extended around the body of the barbecue, giving you even more space for storage. Whether it's seasoning, spices, sauce for the food, or sauce for the chef, this handy space is perfect for keeping small items close at hand.
The chromium plated grill can withstand the high temperatures of burning charcoal, and can be easily washed clean once you have finished your barbecue. There are two shelf levels, which can help you to control the cooking temperature. With two separate grilling levels, you are able to move the grill closer to, or further from the charcoal, depending on how well done you like your food or how quickly you want it to cook.
We sell a variety of accessories to help you cook and also to enable you to maintain your barbecue. The Charcoal Starter Lighting Kit will help you to light your barbecue on a breezy day. It ignites your coals quickly without any fuss; once they are fully lit you can simply empty them into your barbecue. Or you can give your barbecue some extra protection with the Big K Masonry barbecue cover.
