A barbecue or garden fireplace is an indispensable part of every home. It is possible to see it equally in small and modest, as well as in luxuriously landscaped courtyards because the preparation of outdoor food is a special experience for the whole family. If you want to decorate your garden or a summer kitchen with a barbecue that will attract the glimpses and complete the feeling of outdoor living, be sure to consider several important questions:
1.Do you want covered or uncovered version of barbecue?
Covered (indoor) version of the barbecue means a barbecue placed on the terrace under eaves or in the interior. In this case, it is mandatory to use a tin plate above the grill and the flue duct. If there is a chimney that tin plate has to be connected to, you have to pay attention to the required chimney profile. When installing in indoor areas, it is necessary to provide fresh air supply and installation of the ash box.
The uncovered design is exterior, freely exposed to all atmospheric conditions. Barbecue is placed at sufficient distance from the facilities due to flue gases which are coming out through a concrete mask. It is not possible to use wooden elements due to moisture from the atmosphere. Grill needs to be laid on a concrete base with a minimum thickness of 15 cm, depending on the load capacity of the ground.
2. Do you want to prepare smaller quantities of food or spice up your meals on spit?
Depending on whether you need a bigger grill or a daily snack preparation, you have to decide which width of the firebox you need.
In Hoyan’s BBQ collection, there is a smaller, family grille of 66 to 100 cm wide, which will certainly meet the needs of a larger family. For larger parties it is necessary a larger inserts width 100 – 130 cm, and for a full barbecue it is possible to recommend the width of the insert 150 cm.
In this case, it is necessary to provide access to the spit rotation motor from the side.
Particular attention should be paid to this when installing the barbecue in a space bounded by walls. Inserts larger than 150 cm can also be found in the Hoyan grill collection, but they are already intended for installation in catering. You can see an example of a barbecue in our video
3.Do you want to prepare food under baking bell?
If you want to prepare food under baking bell in your barbecue grill, for 40 cm diameter bell the minimum required depth of the firebox is 70 cm, as well as 70 cm wide. If you choose a larger 50 cm diameter baking bell then count on a ten centimeter larger dimension of the interior of the firebox
4. Which style of BBQ design matches your indoor and outdoor space?
Because of its strong association with the tradition and atmosphere of a warm home, the rustic style of design is especially popular in our regions. Models from the Rustikana series are coated with a colorfully tones of stone Travertine and with neutral grayish Bihacite stone heads and bolts.
Apolis is a series of simple grills, discreetly decorated on the front with a string of chamote bricks.Due to the combination of only two types of material (chamote brick and cement mortar), this grill can be incorporated into any style of space.
Ovalis is a contemporary collection of barbecues whose features are mildly rounded lines of the frontal elements. This style of barbecue is suited for installation in simple design spaces, with houses of strict geometric lines. Barbecue Vega is further distinguished by full minimalism, flat surfaces and openness on both sides, making it particularly interesting to architects.
5. Which extra elements for barbecue you need?
In accordance with the limits of space and of course your financial resources, preparing food in a walled barbecue can be especially fun and interesting if you anticipate some of the additional grid elements: a metal grille of the appropriate dimensions, a small family baking oven, a benches next to a barbecue for storing food and accessories, workbench with a sink, built-in refrigerator, kettle, ice-maker … If you still have a similar style of designing your table and garden bench, life in warm weather can be pleasantly moved to the terrace.
