But we're here to tell you about the beauty of a DIY BBQ that you can easily build yourself, using standard bricks and in just one weekend.

Who needs to leave the house when you've got such a great garden project on the go eh? Just step outside or into your garage with The Landmann DIY Charcoal Barbecue available on Amazon that comes complete with easy-to-follow instructions and all the components that you need too. You'll get a grill, coal tray, and ash collection tray – and there will be nothing more satisfying than having built this BBQ from Amazon yourself.

It couldn't be simpler, and people who have already built their barbecue themselves swear by its durability and by the high quality of the parts provided. For even greater stability, it is advisable to use mortar with the bricks. The compact dimensions – 67.4 x 42 x 6.8 cm – mean that you can have this barbie even in a small patio or garden.
