If we have garden big enough and we often prepare food on the grill it is the best choice to build concrete, stone or brick garden grill. It can be build on the edge of the terrace or elsewhere in the vicinity of the table. Built garden grills are resistant to different weather conditions. We can choose between small grills, having only a fireplace, or higher which also have chimney and shelf. The biggest grills can be part of the garden kitchen.
