We often get asked by clients about the different styles and designs that are available for Brick BBQ, Brick Grills, Brick Pizza/Bread Ovens and what bricks should be used.
Unfortunately, there is not one correct answer. The answer is ‘it depends on your requirements’.
To help guide you we have put together our top tips for choosing the right brick feature for your needs.
So, whether you are looking for a brick barbecue for your backyard to entertain family or friends or you need a large brick oven for commercial use in a café or restaurant, there are two main topics to consider – Functionality and Design
The first and most important thing to consider is what do you want the brick feature to be able to do? For some clients they will want to barbecue meats and vegetables, others will want to cook traditional Arabic Mandi in the oven. Some want a simple fireplace or firepit or you can also have a combination of these features for a large centerpiece. For every brick feature there will be a different function, so defining this from the offset will be a great starting point and narrow down the different design options available.
Here is a list of the most popular outdoor brickwork features to choose from:
- Barbecue / Grill
- Mandi Oven
- Standard Oven
- Open Firepit
- Pizza Oven / Bread Oven
It is also important to consider what will be the power source to your feature i.e Electric? Gas? Wood burning?
TOP TIP: Why not include a full food preparation and dining area to complete the full design?
2. Design / Style
Now you know what you need your brickwork feature to do, you can then decide how you want it to look.
All of the above will need to be made from firebricks which have high fire resistance and are able to withstand high temperatures.
For most of the above features, you have completely free choice on how you want to design it. There are some limitations on the size of the pizza/bread oven due to the ratio in which the dome needs to be built to effectively cook the food.
Here is a list of some of the design features you can consider and choose from:
- Brick colors
- Brick textures
- Adding other materials such as marble/stone.
To help guide you we have gathered together a selection of our most popular designs for your consideration. All of the below can be customized and rescaled to your desired size:
