Well after going to a home show this weekend and saw some outdoor kitchen designs I now want to make something instead of a cart.
Here are my thoughts. This will be on my raised wooden deck. The kitchen would be ~10ft long that would contain stainless door cabinets, drawers. I would build it out of metal studs and covered with durock (cement boards) then covered with stone veneer. The top would either be tile or poured concrete possibly as stale/stone/marble is way too much money. The Egg would remain in the nest (less the egg shelves) at the end of the kitchen/counter.
Any ideas? My concern's are weight on the deck but maybe over thinking it. Should I elevate the whole structure to allow air underneath it? Casters? My other issue us around the front of the outdoor kitchen. With spills and the fire embers from the Egg on the deck. I do not think putting a stone floor down would look good on the deck plus a small step up to the kitchen area would look good or be functional as well. If this were built on a ground level stone/paver patio then I would have no issues at all as that was the original plan but since this winter cooking on the Egg down stairs in the dark/cold was not working out we moved the Egg onto the deck and I have used it more since its close to the kitchen. Carrying the food up and down the stairs was a PITA and lots of dropped foods here and there plus a mess all over the place.
