I have a Bar b q pit, that was built back in the 70's. It has a grill opening of about 4 ft. plus. over the years the angle iron has deteriated and expanded the normal 3/8" joint to at least a 1",thus causing the chimney to tilt away at least 5 degrees out of plumb. My suggestion to my friend was to replace the angle iron without breaking down the complete chimney.Does this sound like a logical solution and if so what would be the best way to do it. If not, how would you remedy the problem.

    Job completed!!! Removed the immediate row of brick seating on the deteriated angle iron, after which, I was able to remove the angle iron. Installed new angle iron, reset row of excavated brick, point and tuck joint above, job done.
