BBQ Concepts – Las Vegas, Nevada

Southern Nevada is home to some of the best outdoor kitchens and BBQ Concepts in Las Vegas, Nevada has the best materials for your outdoor kitchen. BBQ Concepts has everything you need for building an outdoor kitchen that lasts. In this article, we will review some of the best materials used for modern outdoor kitchens. Not all outdoor kitchens are built the same, so let us review the best options.

From the bottom up

Starting with flooring options for an outdoor kitchen, two of the most popular options are poured concrete and stone pavers. Poured concrete is durable and can take the heat from the blazing summer sun. Stone pavers are also very durable and come in a variety of colors and textures. Concrete and stone create an easy to clean and very durable foundation for an outdoor kitchen or living area. Stone pavers are decorative, as well as, highly functional in an outdoor kitchen. With the help of modern coating materials, these stone and concrete foundations can be coated with a heat-resistant surface coating that prevents the ground from becoming too hot to walk on in bare feet… or hot enough to cook an egg.

The structure of a barbecue island

Barbecue islands are the centerpiece for any outdoor kitchen. The less expensive option for barbecue islands is stainless steel, which works well and will hold up well year round. One of the big drawbacks of stainless steel is that it can be tricky to keep clean and smudge free. A better option for the built-in barbecue structure is using concrete or steel to build the frame, and then using Dekton brick panels to wrap and protect the barbecue island. Wood is another popular option for outdoor kitchens, however; wooden structures, cupboards, and furniture combined with the desert heat do not traditionally mix well. The sun will dry and crack wood unless great care has been taken to protect it. Stick with a steel or concrete frame and the barbecue island will last years longer.

Top off the outdoor kitchen

The two most commonly used countertop materials are poured concrete and granite. When it comes to outdoor kitchens, the countertop will make or break a design. Granite comes in ‘levels’ of patterns and quality. A level 1 granite will have a less notable pattern and color style than a level 3 granite. Having an outdoor kitchen countertop that is very durable and easy to clean cannot be understated. Granite is the best option for durability and stain resistance. Granite countertops are non-porous and will resist stains from spilled food and drinks.

To summarize the best materials for an outdoor kitchen:
Concrete or stone paver foundation
Concrete or steel frame barbecue island structure
Dekton/Stone tile covering for the barbecue island
Granite or poured concrete countertop

Planning an outdoor kitchen

After talking about what a customer would like to have in their outdoor kitchen, the team at BBQ Concepts helps with the consultation, survey, design, and planning. Yard inspection will help identify any potential issues with an outdoor kitchen or living area design. The inspection process will make sure the area can support any utility needs such as gas, power, and water. The biggest obstacle to building an outdoor kitchen is making sure the area can contain the design and build plan. Accommodations will need to be made so that utility connections can reach the appropriate spots. Once the consultation and inspections are complete, the final project for the outdoor kitchen is drafted. The architect, contractors, and designers formulate the roll-out and schedule the construction.

Las Vegas outdoor kitchens typically have a built-in grill or smoker, an outdoor rated refrigerator, and storage drawers. Some of the other items commonly found in an outdoor kitchen are sink and faucet, isolated trash drawer, access doors for plumbing and gas lines, extended bar countertop, LED lighting systems, and even home entertainment systems such as an outdoor rated HDTV and entertainment system. The structures of the barbecue islands are typically wrapped in a variety of stacked stone and topped with level 1-3 granite or poured concrete countertops. Having so many options in outdoor kitchen appliances and accessories are an excellent reason to have experienced people install your outdoor kitchen. The design has to accommodate the available space and budget, that is where experience pays off.

With the unusual ice and snow in Las Vegas finally over for the season, it’s time to talk about Outdoor Kitchens in Las Vegas, Nevada!

BBQ Concepts of Las Vegas has the experience and supplies to help build the outdoor kitchen that you desire. But what if you are not sure what you want or know how to find it? With just a few ideas, an entire vision for an outdoor kitchen or living area can happen. That is where the experts at BBQ Concepts can assist! Let’s review what an outdoor kitchen is all about.

The budget

Without funds, an outdoor kitchen remains a dream. Before you can plan your outdoor kitchen, always know your budget for the project. Knowing how much money you have budgeted is helpful for the planning stage of an outdoor kitchen project. There are many options to choose from, and costs can quickly overrun without proper diligence. Know your budget and stick to it.

The planning for your outdoor kitchen

Have an idea about the appliances you would like to have in your outdoor kitchen. There are basic outdoor kitchen ideas such as having a built-in barbecue grill, a small sink, an outdoor refrigerator, and a place to store your utensils. Other options include trash disposal drawers, storage drawers, extended countertops, seating areas, dining areas, wet bars, and the list goes on from there. Once you have an idea about what you want in your outdoor kitchen, you are ready to talk to a professional.

The Consultation

This part of an outdoor kitchen project is where ideas, budget, and reality come together. It’s time to develop into a construction and installation plan. A specialist inspects the property to plan a layout and calculate installation with costs based on requirements for electricity, gas, and water along with construction and outdoor rated appliances. The consultation is a crucial part of any successful outdoor kitchen project. Having experienced people guiding the process is well worth the cost.

The Permits

Once an outdoor kitchen project is mapped out, secure the permits for the project. Construction and utility work will always require permits before construction can begin.

The Construction

When planned out well, the architect, contractors, and construction workers coordinate to build the foundation and run the utility connections. Appliances, cabinetry, and countertops arrive and placed. Everything that needs to happen to bring the dream to reality occurs in this part of the plan. The time required for construction entirely depends on the design and scale of the outdoor kitchen project.

The Final Touches

With the outdoor kitchen built and successfully tested, the fun part begins! All of the little things that make your outdoor kitchen functional and personal find their way. Some of the favorite items found in outdoor kitchens and living areas include LED lighting, outdoor rated audio/video entertainment, wet bars, counter islands and couches for seating. Some add useful items like patio heaters and fire features to their outdoor living areas.
