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.
