Note: In this article we’ll use the word outdoor kitchen, BBQ Island, and Barbecue Island interchangeably. All we’re referring to is the structure that contains your grill & components. A custom barbecue island can be used for so much more than cooking/grilling though. Some custom outdoor kitchens include bar height counter-tops, prep-areas, fire features and more.
The Custom Outdoor Kitchen or Barbecue Island
In today’s article, we’ll be talking about the outdoor kitchen or barbecue island. The barbecue island is your outdoor kitchens structure. The island is the structure that will hold all the professional components you choose to include. Outdoor kitchen components such as a barbecue grill, sideburner, power burner, stainless-steel storage doors & drawers, and any other components you choose to include. It’s always best to consult with a professional outdoor kitchen contractor before you start purchasing any components for your BBQ Island. A professional outdoor kitchen builder will help to assess the outdoor space you have to work with, design a structure using the latest in CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology, and guide you through the entire construction process. You wouldn’t build a house without consulting with one. Building an outdoor kitchen isn’t any different. This is a structure that will be used regularly, it will contain components that utilize an open flame and reach extremely high temperatures. It’s always best to bring in a professional to assist or even to build the entire BBQ Island.
