|Design for 14' x 8' BBQ Island|
|If you are considering an outdoor kitchen this size or larger, you must entertain friends more than 95% of the population. We are jealous. Going this big will allow you to incorporate virtually any outdoor kitchen components you desire. Surely your friends will rave for weeks about anything that happens in your backyard utopia. Please send us some pictures of the finished kitchen, so we can live vicariously though you.
Some people choose to construct their BBQ Islands out of cinder blocks and others use steel studs. Both have their merits. If your island has curves in it, then cinder block is the way to go. If you are trying to maximize internal storage space, steel studs are the best choice. The main thing to remember is that the spacing of your components is critical to your BBQ island's usefulness. As long as you are purchasing medium to high end cooking components, the spacing of the equipment is probably more important than the actual components. If you can't set a plate down next to your grill, you will be unhappy with the finished product.
