I was thinking the same as Les- A few tapcons into the side of the stand should be more than adequate. Are your bricks cored or solid? Cored bricks are marginally more stable, as the mortar has holes to key into; but either should work fairly well. You're not supporting the weight of the stand on the bricks, so they've only got their own weight to hold up. They'll have the support of the stand they are mortared to. They only have to keep from separating from the stand.

I am doing something similar with my stand. I have the block stand to support the weight of the oven, with a brick facing and arch to the storage area. I don't have ties throughout the wall, but will be installing them in the final row of bricks to tie the facing to the stand.

I haven't picked out the bricks yet.. gotta get to the brick yard soon.

You guys are talking about using tapcons and some sort of tie right? Like one of those on here:TN 44B - WALL TIES FOR BRICK MASONRY

yeah... they say the corrugated ones aren't recommended for this application, but since you're essentially retrofitting this, it's either that or some more expensive masonry re-anchoring described there at fig. 11. And since this is only a 4-foot high non-structural facade on an outdoor installation, I wouldn't worry about it unless you have to deal with a particularly difficult building inspector.

Shay,

Just go to Lowes or HD. You will have to buy (around 92) more then you need.
