    What started as a way to keep the grandbabies out of danger evolved into this. There's just a single entry and all the kids know to keep out. Sadly, we are planning to move away from it to another state :-(

      Yeah, a lot of us Californios are doing that. Quite a shame actually.

      Hopefully the money saved in taxes will help you build an even better one at the new place!

    I have been wanting to build this for a long time, covered porch on exposed aggregate concrete slab. Just to keep my cookers ( and me) protected from weather. I had a week of vacation the 3 rd week of October, and my goal was to get concrete poured. That was accomplished of on a Thursday afternoon. The last Saturday of October I framed posts, beam and rafters, on Sunday November 1st- roof purlins and metal roof. This weekend I added wiring for lights and receptacles, then today put up metal ceiling and roof fascia trim. Sealed the concrete with a brown tinted sealer. After a day to cure I can move the grill, griddle, pellet grill and a stick burner to be available for use more often. Click image for larger version

    Thanks. Not far from the house, in the garage that this is attached to-a full working kitchen that most of my work with meat and outdoor cooking prep is done.

        DavidNorcross - yes they are stainless - that is my only regret with the brand since they only offer SS tops. they get EXTREMELY hot in the sun (and that's just Massachusetts sun). one could also go on their own and mount custom tops. The SS all around stays clean pretty easy with WD-40.

      Follow up to my previous post. This is not a holiday tradition I look forward to, but it’s a must to keep me grilling and BBQing all year long. Got my winter cover up just in time. Got 10” overnight. Still counting. Snow picture to follow.

      I've been waiting for the moment when my outdoor space is ready to post here. See, we moved in January 2020, and one of the things my wife was really looking for was a house with a covered backyard space with an outdoor kitchen, so we could enjoy our new yard and being outside with the kids year-round. The house we ended up finding didn't have those things, so we built it ourselves (with a handyman we've used before). As with all projects, it was significantly more effort and cost than we expected.

        Water and sink waste line come in the back, and propane storage in the corner. There's an electrical line for the fridge and side burner that you don't see.

        The rest of the family. When people ask why I put in a griddle instead of a grill, I just point to these and say I already have a grill and smokers.

          Wow! That’s beautiful. Great job David. I like the stone you used around the griddle. The floor tile as well. What type of tile did you use for the floor? That’s not travertine is it?

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      the good one grill
      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
