We have an old homemade stone fireplace at our cabin that we use for outdoor grilling. The three 1" steel support pipes embedded in the stone above the firebox have rusted out and need to be replaced. Is there any way to do that without removing the stone to reach the ends?
If I cut the rods in the middle I could probably twist out the stubs on each side, but don't know what I might use to create and insert replacements.

Ayuh,..... 1" rebar comes to mind, or 1" steel pins, aka: round stock,.....

With the holes on each side, slide a bar into 1 side as far as possible, align to the other hole, 'n slide it back, 1/2 the distance ya stuffed it into the 1st hole,....
