Masonry BBQ with Granite Countertops

When you go to a cook out or an outdoor party the best place to hang out is around the grill.  Everyone is happy to be there the mood is great.  The atmosphere could not be better than when you can smell the food on the grill cooking.

Maybe you are thinking of putting in a masonry bbq because you were at someones house and they had one.  If you are here are a few tips to make sure the process goes well and you are getting what works and what lasts.

First pick out your grill and collect all the specifications that go along with it as they will be needed.  Second select a mason that you are very confident in and has built some of these kinds of grills in the past because he will need to coordinate everyone.  Third decide if you want or if you grill requires electrical.  If it does you will need to get an electrician.  Fourth select a plumber to install the gas line.  Fifth select the material that you would like to use for the lower area of the grill and the counter top.  Sixth map out the area where you are planning to build it.  Make sure this is a safe place that the heat and smoke from the grill will not cause problems.  Seventh make a plan to figure out how you are going place all your components and create your counter space.  Keep in mind you will need to run gas to your grill so make those accommodations.

After following those steps you are ready to start.  Keep an eye on the gas and electric as those absolutely must be done correctly for the safety you and others.  Select a counter that can handle being out side in the weather.  Make sure the grill is handled carefully and installed correctly as it is what all this is about.

When it is all done sit back and enjoy every minute you spend using it.  A masonry bbq will last many years and can be a wonderful looking piece of out door furniture.
