Checklist for barbecue fireplaces

Grill surface
  • The size of the grill grate limits the amount of food you can grill at once with the grill fireplace . For 2 to 3 people, the grill grate should have a size of about 45 x 45 cm , if you want to grill side dishes in addition to meat and fish . 90 x 90 cm is a good size for 4 to 5 people. And if 6 to 8 people are to be served at the same time, a grill grate with a size of about 100 x 100 cm is recommended.
Material
  • Classic barbecue fireplaces are still made of concrete . Their advantage is the uncomplicated construction and the typical rustic look. Barbecue fire places with double walls are recommended.

Depending on the manufacturer, the stainless steel sheets are equipped with an insulating layer , which additionally gives the fireplace an antique look and prevents the outside from getting dangerously hot. Stainless steel grill fireplaces are also available with casters, so you can conveniently place the grill anywhere on the patio.
Pizza oven
  • If you want to grill not only fish, meat and vegetables , but also bake a pizza sometimes, then you should buy a barbecue fireplace with a pizza oven . The pizza ovens are separate from the grill chamber , usually installed on top and easily accessible.
Accessories
  • Several shelves for barbecue food, spices, drinks, cutlery and much more are practical accessories for a barbecue fireplace.
