Is it really worth it? In the version shown, without even getting into the required concrete footing, it has used approx 132 bricks, approx .2m cube of sand, a bag of cement, then adding the cost of the metal work, and the labour cost personal or otherwise to build it, you could easily buy several cheap BBQ's for cost of this one BBQ!
Another factor to consider, is that brick built BBQ's are invariably built in the wrong place, and with changes in wind and weather, become an expensive and very ugly garden feature.
York Handmade Brick make really beautiful bricks that will make your Barbeque blend in to your garden as a garden feature to be proud of. They have won awards for landscaped gardens at Chelsea flower show. 'Google' York Handmade and take a look in the landscaping section to see what I mean.
This is ours, built into the wall to terrace the sloping garden. It's much better than the general movable ones - it doesn't have to be put inside during winter or finish up as a pile of disintegrating rust by being left outside. It's always ready to use at the drop of a hat (or should I say at a ray of the sun!). It has even been cooked on under an umbrella. I wouldn't be without it.
