Easy Installation:

Drop-In Frame Grills are designed to be a dropped into masonry units constructed of solid brick. Select from our standard sizes or we can build to suit your existing counter opening. The counter top opening should be 1/2″ larger than the selected grill size. For example, a 30″ x 24″ Drop-In Frame will require a 30-1/2″ x 24-1/2″ counter top opening. There is no bolting or gluing required. Simply drop the frame to your opening, and the grill will be supported by the 2-1/2″ flanges around all four sides.
Depending on the size of the grill, we recommend the brick floor be built approx. 14″-16″ from grill rim to brick floor. This offers optimal temperature ranges for most wood fires. If using solely charcoal the firebox can be shallower.
