Now that summer is in full swing, you’ll want to enjoy throwing lots of parties at your home! One of the most common ways to do that is by having a barbecue. Most people tend to buy barbecues from local stores. They are ones made from metal and are quite cheap to buy.
But, what if you want to have an authentic barbecue experience? One without a propane gas cylinder in sight? The answer, of course, is to build one yourself. Don’t worry; you don’t need to learn how to lay bricks! The following guide will show you how to make one from scratch using a few simple materials in no time at all:
Find a suitable location
The last thing you want to do is set fire to your garden (or house)! That’s why it is important to select a good location for your barbecue. It should be on ground where there is no grass or combustible materials.
Prepare the barbecue area
Clear any debris like leaves from the area you designated as your barbecue. Next, dig a shallow pit and fill it with some stones. Once you’ve done that, surround the barbecue pit with large stones.
Starting the barbecue
Once you’ve prepared the area, you can start a fire by using some wood logs. Be sure to use the best ones you can (see the infographic below). You can then cook your food using a spit or grill over the fire.
