This outdoor BBQ means a lot to the family. So that’s why we kept it and the deck and built the new house around it. All of our family memories have been around that fire. I laid 600 bricks to build it and the hot plate is a 8mm plate weighing about 250kg. The cooking surface is 6’ x 4’ so thirty odd T Bones are not a problem. Only problem was from time to time it would smoke the deck out, (hence the goggles), so after years of copping the smoke while cooking and eating I decided to put some doors on and a chimney to draw the smoke.
