Best Materials for Your Outdoor Kitchen

Custom Outdoor Kitchen by BBQ Concepts of Las Vegas, Nevada - Your source for professional outdoor kitchens, barbecue grills, components, and accessories

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

Outdoor Kitchens Las Vegas Nevada

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.

February Is The Time To Plan Your Outdoor Kitchen

In Southern Nevada, if you want to plan an outdoor kitchen or living area to be ready for the summer, February is the perfect time to get started with planning! Because Southern Nevada averages a shorter winter season than much of the country, February is a great time to get plans for outdoor kitchens and barbecues set in motion. While February is historically Nevada’s wet and rainy season, it also serves as a great time to get started with planning and preparing for construction for outdoor kitchens and living areas. We will now cover 11 essential questions to ask when planning an outdoor kitchen.

  • 1) How often will you cook outside?
  • 2) How many people will you typically grill for?
  • 3) Will children need to be a consideration in the overall design?
  • 4) What types of food will you be cooking outside?
  • 5) What are the grill and smoker box options?
  • 6) Do you plan on having an outdoor sink or refrigeration?
  • 7) Will gas or water lines need to be constructed?
  • 8) Will you need an outdoor kitchen prep area?
  • 9) How much outdoor storage will be required for utensils, dishes, tools, trash, and other items?
  • 10) Will you need an outdoor eating area?
  • 11) Will you use the space for entertaining as well as cooking?

The most significant consideration for the planning and building of an outdoor kitchen or living area is to KNOW YOUR BUDGET AND STICK WITH IT.
Every year there are more and more options available for customizing an outdoor kitchen and budgets can quickly get out of control if careful planning is not done before construction starts. Work with a professional when planning, designing, and building an outdoor kitchen or living area and save a lot of time, money, and stress.

Thankfully, the knowledgeable staff at BBQ Concepts in Las Vegas, Nevada has years of experience to be able to assist every step of the way! BBQ Concepts is now open seven days a week to help with any questions that you might have about your outdoor kitchen.

Outdoor Kitchen Winterizing

BBQ Concepts – Las Vegas, Nevada

Southern Nevada has a shorter Winter season than much of the country, but freezing weather can still affect outdoor kitchens and appliances. The coldest months for the Las Vegas area are December through February. That is when temperatures can fall below the freezing point, typically overnight. While the duration of freezing weather is not as long as many places, even one night of freezing weather can cause damage to outdoor kitchens, appliances, and fixtures. Knowing what to do when weather hits the freezing point or below can save costly repair bills. Let’s talk about outdoor kitchen winterizing.

Here are some of our top ideas to keep your outdoor kitchen in good condition during freezing weather:

Barbecue Grill Care

Remove the grates and use a degreaser solution to clean the inside barbecue surfaces and grates. Use a narrow bristle brush to scrub areas that are difficult to reach or to clean stubborn areas. Follow up with Stainless Steel polish on the exterior surfaces. Once the barbecue has been cleaned, rub vegetable oil on both sides of the grates before installing them back into the grill. Heat the barbecue to 500 degrees for about 20 minutes. The grates should be black or brown and will be well seasoned for the next use. Keep the barbecue vents closed while not in use to keep the grill interior protected from dust and the weather.

Winterize Cabinets

Remove any items stored in the outdoor cabinets. If you have wooden cabinets in your outdoor kitchen, Winter is the perfect time to oil or seal the wood to keep moisture and weather from penetrating the wood. For those who have stainless steel cabinets, use stainless steel polish on the exterior to keep moisture off the surface.

Water Line Maintenance

If your outdoor kitchen includes a sink, refrigerator, or any other water plumbing, it is important to shut off the water lines during freezing weather. Water expands when frozen and leaving water in the lines can damage the plumbing as it expands. After shutting off any water lines that feed into the outdoor kitchen, you will want to drain the water lines to prevent damage. Once the water is shut off with the lines bled, open the drain valves and leave them open for the Winter. This step helps prevent water and moisture from becoming trapped inside the affected appliances and fixtures.

Sink Maintenance

After shutting off the water valves to the outdoor kitchen appliances and fixtures, open the cold and hot water valves and leave them open. This step will prevent water in the pipes from causing damage if frozen. People in areas that freeze over for much of the Winter choose to completely remove the faucets from their outdoor kitchen for the Winter season however this is rarely needed in Southern Nevada. Shutting off the water lines and draining the lines while leaving the faucet valves open is typically good enough. If water comes out from the faucets, check the source water line and ensure that it is fully closed. Use stainless steel polish to keep the sink in good condition.

Refrigerator and Ice Maker

Turn off the refrigerator and unplug it. Remove any items in the fridge and clean the interior with mild soap and water. Remove the toe plate and vacuum any debris from under the refrigerator. Reinstall the toe plate. Due to issues with moisture build-up, covering the fridge for the Winter is not recommended. Wipe and polish the surface with stainless steel cleaner or another conditioning cleaner that works with the appliance material.

Outdoor Heater Season is Coming

Outdoor Heaters

Extend your outdoor barbecue season with one of our many solutions in outdoor heating. BBQ Concepts in Las Vegas, Nevada offers a range of retail and custom solutions for keeping your outdoor living area warm and comfortable. We have fixed and portable outdoor heater options that will ensure your outdoor living area is ready for winter. BBQ Concepts will help you make the most of your outdoor living area in any season.

Patio heaters, also known as ‘mushroom’ or ‘umbrella’ heaters, are radiant heaters typically mounted on a pole or stand and can be positioned to heat specific areas. These outdoor heaters are connected directly to gas lines or fueled with portable gas tanks. These portable heaters can be moved around to make sure that you and your guests are comfortable even as temperatures drop.

Fire pits and fire tables are another way to heat an outdoor living area stylishly. These tables are typically connected to gas lines so that the flames are adjustable to suit the need. Gas runs up through glass pellets and beads which creates a shimmering heated table surface. You and your guests will stay warm in style with any of our fire pits and fire tables, designed to compliment your outdoor living area.

Outdoor Kitchens are gradually popularizing themselves across the great state of Nevada. In large part, this predictable phenomenon is due to their limitless personalization, but much of the sensation is from their adequacy as futuristic workstations for the enthusiast, professional or avid host and hostess. Beautifully constructed yet adulated for their aesthetic simplicity, they grab attention, inspire creativity, magnetize you to be around them, to cook more, and to relax just as often. They’re to be respected, and by owning one, you’ll see just how many memories they’ll help you create.

“I watch the flame move to and fro, almost in slow-motion as I stand in awe of how perfect it doesn’t know it is. Off in the distance, there’s a patter of footsteps accompanied by laughter. Bubbles are blown into the humid air as the moisture attaches itself to the fragile and malleable spheres that float directionless. As directionless as the joy the children feel until it drifts away in an evening dream, only to come back like the morning sunrise. I watch them through my window, across the smells of smoke as it shrouds my vision but not my perception; and I find myself holding my breath as the world turns slower than my thoughts, absorbing memories like nutrition until the last person leaves. How perfect it is. If the flame could speak, I wonder if it would feel the same way about me, at this moment, as I do it.”

BBQ Concepts, a Las Vegas, Nevada retailer for Lynx, Summerset, Traeger, Alfresco, Fire Magic, DCS and True Refrigeration, proudly serves our city the most exceptional grills, components, accessories and outdoor kitchens the world has yet seen. You’ll not only be happy with what you purchase, but who you bought it from.

Here at BBQ Concepts, we design and manufacture our outdoor kitchen products. Our process allows us to plan the project, then build it. Our streamlined design & planning process is top notch!

Outdoor Kitchen Considerations & Overall Price

If you think that “custom designed” means that it’s associated with a higher price, you would be incorrect, at least when BBQ Concepts is concerned. We quote based on linear foot when estimating a custom outdoor kitchen project. How much your barbecue island costs will be dependent on what type of finishing materials you choose, island design configuration & features (such as a bar or curve), as well as what kind of outdoor kitchen components you opt to include. This process allows you to pick and choose what you want in an outdoor kitchen. With #BBQConcepts you can strategically build an outdoor living area on a fixed budget, allowing you act frugally in some areas while splurging in others.
