Charcoal Grill Project (1)

We recently purchased a very nice gas grill.  It’s really great, but we sometimes still like the flavor of charcoal grilling.   Rather than just buy a charcoal grill, we decided to build one from scratch.

Here is the beginning of the base.  We are going for a dry-stack look, but using mortar to make it very sturdy.


Mixing mortar in the wheelbarrow.  Not too much water!

Mixing Mortar

Using rubber gloves to lay down the mortar between the stones.  It’s like a big puzzle.
