Mounting TV outdoors in brick?

Has anyone had any experience in mounting a TV to an outdoor brick wall? I am wanting to install one on my back patio. IÂ’m getting different answers on how/what to use to anchor the mount to the wall.

The TV size would be 40 inches or larger.

Mounting it directly to the brick seems like a stronger material to mount a TV to. I am very leary about mounting it to the brick mortar, seems like the mortar is not as strong and the anchors would pull out easily.

I have used the blue tapcon masonry screws in concrete but not brick before. Anytime I have tried to use the tapcons in mortar they just strip out and donÂ’t hold. So I havenÂ’t had that great of luck with the tapcon anchor screws. I am considering a sleeve anchor directly into the brick since I have not had good luck with the tapcons. I would hate to drill a hole in the brick and have the tapcons come back out.

Looking for advice on how I can mount the TV without it falling. Where to anchor it and whatÂ’ anchors to use.

Use "Red Head" brand anchors. Drill and mount to the brick not the mortar.

What diameter and length do you recommend? I want to mount a 40-50 inch tv on a tilting mount.
