Continue to dry-stack or adhere the granite pieces by staggering the joints.

For the second row, you’ll need to create ventilation gaps on opposite side of your propane fire pit. To do so, replace two full granite pieces with the half-sized ones.

Cut and secure wire mesh to the inside walls of these gaps so rodents don’t make your fire pit home.

Check for vertical plumb. If you need to level the granite, mix a teaspoon of sand with exterior grade silicone, PL 620 Granite/Marble, or PL Premium Constructive Adhesive, and apply this mixture between the rows.

Ensure the assembled base is level and plumb. Inside this base, insert the steel burner bracket.

The flange of the bracket can rest either above or under regular-sized top caps. If you purchased oversized caps, secure them under the flange for stability and safety.
