Confirming the Design

  1. If you want to build the surround exactly as pictured, skip down to "Building the Frame." To modify the design, you must first determine the size of your grill. Measure the width, depth, and height, and note any obstructions that need to be cleared by the finished surround.
  2. The easiest way to modify the design is to draw it out on paper. The first step is to draw the dimensions of the frame. The surround should be flush with the grill on the inside, and the top surface should be at least 15 inches wide (enough to accommodate a large platter).
  3. The next step is to decide how tall you want your surround. Measure from the ground to where you want the top surface. Subtract 3/4 inch (to accommodate the top slats), and you have the length of your legs.
  4. Total the amount of each of the materials needed for your design, and alter your materials list accordingly. Also, to help you plan your purchases, adjust the cutting list as needed.
  5. Read all of the directions below to make certain that you understand them thoroughly. This will enable you to make slight adjustments in the procedures as you build your own unique barbecue surround.
