I am looking for plans to an outdoor masonry fireplace/grill. I have had no success so far. Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What you need to look for is a masonary dealer (quarry) who sells marble, stone and brick. They will carry the proper material that you need for this project. You cannot use ordinary brick or stone. They will have the material, various plans and even predesigned kits……….

Why don’t you build your own,?? I did, and had great fun in bulding it.
I’m not sounding off, but I saved money in doing it myself.but I’m in the
construction business so it was not too hard for me, Im a carpenter
not a bricklayer.
“OK” you are not into this sort of thing, “well” the next best thing is
have a look at some mags/books about houses in Spain, you will have a good
idea of what you are looking for.
Have a chat with a bricky (Bricklayer) that lives in your
area, now I know there must be one some where.
show him the photo/photos of what you want and for a small fee i’m sure he will
be only too happy to do it for you.If you are lucky you may find a guy who is over
65 years old and has stoped working.
Trick: if you want to render (plaster) the outside of your fireplace, put two layers
the first layer in normal cement/sand, the other(final coat) you can have in a lighter/
darker colour ( myself for the final coat I used white cement with red sand, and it looks
Dont forget it will be a little heavy so get the bricky to put in a good base before you/he starts
When you have finished your outdoor fireplace and its looking good,
get the people from next door to come round for bar-be-que.

I briefly heard about outdoor Link Log fireplaces and would like to know who carries them so I may contact them for more information. Any help would be appreciated.

A great book to read if you can find it is, “Sunset’s” Barbeque Book by George A. Anderson. It’s out of print but you can still find one.
