Stand Height
« on: October 30, 2013, 11:48:05 AM »
I am in the process of building a bbq island with a WFO in the corner.  How high is your stand?  Or how high from the ground to the mouth of your oven?

So I'm in the process of building my oven stand and BBQ island.  Looking for advise on either just filling the corners and some cores or mortaring the whole thing.  Thoughts?

Are you building to code?  Do you live in earthquake country?

Not building to code.  No earthquakes in Indiana.

Then you can apply what is known as surface bonding cement and fore-go both mortaring and filling cells.  Take a premix Type S mortar mix, add stucco fiber and bonding agent and simply plaster the stand after dry stacking it to your satisfaction.  Testing has shown this to be as strong as, and in some aspects better than, mortaring and cell reinforcement.  It also will pass code in some jurisdictions and is done to bombproof structures in places where bombs often explode.
