Can you turn a regular grill into a built in?
Yes, you can, and I have done this for clients. You‘ll want to make sure of a few things first: if your built-in grill has folding sides to act as a work surface you‘ll probably want to remove them. Leaving them on, even folded down, causes some big unsightly gaps between the grill and the surround.
Where should a grill be placed on a patio?
Always place grills on a flat, clean surface away from any potentially flammable debris such as rubbish bins or mulch. The same goes for low-lying trees and hedges. Make sure there are no low-hanging branches in the vicinity of your BBQ.
Can you grill on a covered porch?
Never place a charcoal grill in an enclosed area, such as a screened porch or balcony. Also, be careful when using a charcoal grill on a wood deck; embers from the grill can scar the wood and might even cause a fire.
How much does a built-in grill cost?
If you choose to have a built-in grill you can expect to pay between $1,000 and $3,500 for the grill itself. Another option is a drop-in grill. These will run a similar average to the built-in options with a range of $1,000 to $2,500.
Why are built-in grills so expensive?
Burners are entirely made of the highest quality of steel that the manufacturers see fit to be used as a primary heat channel which will make the grill do its job. This too greatly contributes to the heavier price of built-in gas grills.
How far should a built-in grill be from the house?
Your grill—whether it’s charcoal or gas—should be at least 10 feet away from your home or garage, deck railings and other structures. Give yourself enough space, too, says Greta Gustafson, media relations associate for the American Red Cross. “Use the long-handled tools especially made for cooking on the grill.”
Can you use a BBQ as a fire pit?
Weber charcoal barbecue grills are famous for their distinctive globe shape, which you can adapt into a fire pit with a few household tools. Use the lower half for an in-ground fire pit, where friends and family can gather to relax, roast marshmallows or grill hot dogs on a stick.
