I am working on building my own brick barbecue at the moment.
I have a completed base of concrete and now trying to sort a good mortar mix.
I’ve been told to use a ratio of 6:2:1 of sand:lime:cement, but does not seem to have turned out as I had hoped which dries exceptionally quickly and does not bind with the bricks to stick together.
Has anyone any advice or suggestions? Should I try a different ratio for the mix?
