Installed outdoor fireplace
Lunches and dinners at the cottage can not do without the dishes prepared on open fire in the street the hearth. Talk about stationary devices for giving.
The most common variant of street hearth barbecue, which is made of light heat-resistant concrete. Most barbecue grills borrow design and design from classic English fireplace with an open furnace and prismatic-shaped bell has a smoke box. But there are significant differences. To make it easier to cook, raise the unit on high (about 1 m) stand-base, and also provide a low chimney, not allowing smoke and ash to fly into the eyes. In the side walls of the furnace there are always two or three slots for the grid or frame for skewers. Many products concrete modules combined with decorative or fireclay brick, which increases their cost by about 20-30 %. Often equipped with cutting tables, sinks, kitchen cabinets, such models are 40-60% more expensive. Not ruled out more serious changes of the device. Sometimes to the main furnace add oven or a stove, or a smoker, or both. Barbecue turns into a real field kitchen, capable to satisfy the demands of professional chefs.
Need to choose a place for a garden fireplace, because then move the massive structure very difficult. First of all it is necessary to take into account fire safety. Experts recommend to place the stove at least 4 m from buildings of combustible materials and 2 m from the boundaries of the site. Also, consider prevailing wind direction: it is bad if the smoke and ash from the pipe will constantly fly to the porch, the Playground or the pool. It is also impossible to place a fireplace near the eaves of the pitched roof, as in this case, it can damage coming from the roof falling snow or icicles.
Outdoor fireplaces, like their indoor counterparts, are classified in wall, island and corner. The first (most common type) are almost never put at the wall of the capital structure, otherwise all of it will be covered with soot. For the installation of stationary fireplace needs a Foundation. Manufacturers recommend cast in place reinforced concrete slab with a minimum thickness of 100 mm. Plate should be based on well compacted sand-gravel cushion thickness of 150-200 mm. In size oven is required to exceed the dimensions of the base of the fireplace on the 400-800 mm. Pay special attention to the soil under the Foundation was thick, and the plate is carefully placed across the level. The slab usually laid ceramic tile. This should be done before assembling the barbecue, to avoid difficulties with the bypass “legs” of the structure.
