There are some great looking BBQ areas in this post. Here is a crappy iphone pic of what I did today to begin to build a spot for my Jambo by the patio. It's the form for a concrete slab. I'm planning on a 42" high perimeter with a 16" wide "counter" and a pergola roof finished with a stone veneer when it's all done.
