|Masonry and stone barbecues are supplied and delivered in component form on a pallet.
These parts are heavy and may require 2 persons to move into position and assemble.
To avoid cracks appearing in your BBQ the following must be adhered too:
The BBQ must be built on a level solid foundation, a concrete base is best.
Do not cement or glue the base to the foundation. (unless your instructions say to do so)
Using a very thin layer of mortar or glue assemble the parts in order as per the instructions supplied.
If fire bricks are supplied do not fix in place with adhesive or mortar.
Mask the already pre-coloured parts to protect from drips when painting.
Wait 24 hours after assembly and painting before you use your BBQ.
When lighting for the first time light a small fire and increase slowly to help absorb any moisture.
Because stone retains heat you will need less charcoal to cook.
Never use lighting fluid on masonry or stone barbecues.
If small cracks appear in the stone during use you will need to repaint at the end of the season.
Protect in Winter from frost with a cover or tarpaulin.
If unsure your supplied instructions are paramount and use the supplied telephone help line if required.
