How To Install A Built-In Barbecue
This barbecue originally sat on a wobbly cart, which made cooking difficult and caused the oil to pool in a corner.
The new built-in bench is made from special concrete blocks that have been clad with tiles, with meranti doors added to conceal the gas bottle underneath.
Using Hebel blocks
Hebel autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is a lightweight, heat-resistant material. The blocks and panels are easy to lay and after the firstm course is levelled, the rest are secured with a 3mm bed of adhesive.
To cut Hebel, use a handsaw and wear a respirator, safety glasses, long sleeves and gloves.
Tile the panel and side blocks by spreading tile adhesive and laying the tiles. Mix grout and push it into the joints with a squeegee, then wipe clean when dry.
