Score 3/4 inch (1.8 centimeters) over which the racks so that they rest against the edges of the brick.
- Make a line with a level of 4 feet (1.2 meters) and mounted on three sides. Be sure to keep them flush with the edge of the grill area. When you have achieved the desired shape, remove the bricks. If the bricks do not fit you can use a chisel or a wet saw to cut them.

- Continue stacking bricks until grill is three levels high. Build many shelves after the third level to allow your grills settle in different heights. To do this, make bricks protrude about 1/2 inch (1.25 centimeters) of the inner edge of each level. Use a press first vertically and then horizontally as you work to seal the edges. When you reach the desired height, cover the wall with bricks set on the soft side and through the two rows of bricks. Use mason thread to keep in order, starting with the corner bricks.
