    This was our last outdoor kitchen. LC designed it and with some help of a few buds, we threw this together in 3 weekends.

    3 weekends? WOW. love the design. I'm 6 MONTHS through mine and still not done, but done a lot of it alone though. a few more weekends and the Egg will be in its "new home"

    Funny, we stained it red like yours..The Egg was kept under the counter in a nest. Get lots of beer and your buds will follow.. :woohoo:

  • A few pics





    The gasser is handy sometimes (one conventional burner and two Infrareds) but I could live without it. I use the crawfish/crab boil burner a lot and love it. I like having all the storage drawers and bins.

    I designed it in google sketchup and would be happy send the file if anyone is interested.

    Morning ebrooker007:

    Here is a shot of mine after adding the small Egg a few weeks ago...

    I have adequate storage, but probably should have done a few more drawers. I LOVE having the sink close by, plus it is a 19" diameter sink so I can clean the cooking grids very easily!

    Here is a plan view and an elevation view of what I originally envisioned and it came out pretty close.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to email me via the forum.

    Have a GREAT day!

    Here are a few pics of ours, still not done relaying the pavers around the perimeter. If only the rain would stop.


  • That's a great looking kitchen, Bubba Tim! Is that rock veneer on the outside or is it actual stone construction? If it is a veneer, what is your internal structure made of?

    I am in the process of designing my new man kitchen and am exploring different internal structures options.

    All these kitchens look great!

    Here's mine:


  • :( put all my $$$$ into remodeling bathrooms and 3 outdoor kitchen turning into covered outdoor extended patio...lots of bucks can get tied up real quick--the one like Little Chef was going for around 25G if you had to pay for labor.... :ohmy:

    At least...They had what looked to be 5-6 grand in counter tops alone.

    The Naked Whiz site has more tables than you can count! :ohmy:
  • bubba timbubba tim Posts: 3,216
    Aluminum 2x4 is the internal with cement board. Yes that is rock veneer. The base cabinets were built around the granite counter tops. Theye were custom ordered for a project and the man died. I picked them up for the bal owed. ($300)

    AHHHH..The Egg-ma-hall! Love it!
  • Big'unBig'un Posts: 5,909
    That's looking really nice! I can't wait to see the finished project.
  • This is the greatest set-up I've ever seen. Always enjoy the pics when posted. Love the cathedral effect combined with NO BUGS! Used to live on the Gulf Coast and that can definitely be an issue.

    OK, I'll play. Here are a couple pics of mine. I designed the grill center for my newly constructed home with Google SketchUp. I actually designed my grill center with the BGE in mind, having never tasted food from one or even seen one in action. I went to buy a big'ol gasser and the salesmen had me hooked on the Egg before I left the store. Best purchase I made for the new house! In these pics the floor is still just concrete, but I will be covering it with stone. Also, the counter top is still untreated stone in these images, and they will eventually be sealed and enhanced. Oh, and if anyone sees any problems with how the BGE is situated, please let me know. The grill island (actually more of a peninsula) is made of concrete with steel supports internally, lined exteriorly with stone. The BGE is resting upon 3 ceramic feet.






    I like this one without the flash because you can see the coals a'blazin!

    Oh, and I built this PVC/egg crate shelf unit for eggcessories that I store beneath the gasser.
