For safety purposes always put a vent in the back of your outdoor BBQ structures. Every gas line eventually leaks. Including a vent will allow the gas to escape. If not the gas will sit in the grill until someone comes to turn it on and everyone knows what happens when uncontrolled gas and fire meet. A subtle vent in the back of the grill will allow excess gas in case of a leak to escape into the yard rather than sit in the confined space of the grill waiting for you to blow it up by simply lighting up the grill. Be safe and make sure you have some sort of vent in your outdoor BBQ structure. In other words dont blow up your house.
Weather conditions in your area will be very important when thinking of an outdoor kitchen design in some cases extreme weather will call for unique solutions and custom made outdoor kitchens these can be very expensive and take a lot of energy to put together you may need to consider the conditions of your living area before going ahead with the plan to build an outdoor kitchen.
Next you must choose the type of finish for your stone countertop. First of all never use polished stone for an outdoor kitchen countertop. The surface will blind you with reflected sunlight and always look dirty. Allow the natural stone to look natural and it will enhance the style of the outdoor kitchen. Some possible finishes for a natural stone countertop include honed flamed and brushed. A honed natural stone finish features a smooth surface without the horrible reflection of a polished finish.
Why not use this material and save money for essential costs of an outdoor living space? Or given the low cost thinstone veneer can be used on your outdoor kitchen and grill as well as your cabana or home for a uniformed style. Not everything can be included within the outdoor kitchen itself. Just like an indoor kitchen you will definitely need your typical household appliances. Electrical outlets conveniently located on the kitchen backsplash allow hotplates blenders and rotisserie cookers to be plugged in right at your outdoor cooking station.
