The choice of construction material for a garden built-in barbecue is one of the most important consideration as an open air barbecue has to withstand the temperature extremes, the winds and waters, therefore it should be made with sturdy and weather proof material. Brick is one of the favorites in terms of strength, durability and cost, but since we are looking for an alternative stone is another recommended component to give life to your barbecue. Its natural resistance to the passage of time and weather changes can make your work barbecue enjoyed for generations and makes it look spectacular too. A corner barbecue in the yard, made in stone looks amazing too.
