Default Has anyone built a barbecue hut?

I'm looking for some ideas/plans to build some kind of a barbecue hut with a roof and the possibility to close it in for the New England winters. I've seen some Tiki style huts online, but I am really looking for something I can build more budget minded, as in low budget.

I guess this idea would be better suited for a BGE or WSM style cooker, but I'd like to be able to use it with a Weber Kettle. It would be nice to be able to stay out of the rain, and even better the snow and wind in the winter. Of course I want to avoid burning it down and also asphyxiation.

I'm thinking something small and not too elaborate. Simple roof, maybe corrugated panels if that's cheaper than shingles. Maybe some used storm windows or doors to close it in for the winter and be able to open them for ventilation. In the summer it could be open on the sides and just the roof for protection from the sun and rain.

Do any of you have something like this? Am I crazy? Links, ideas, etc.

Im building a cooker out of a 275gallon fuel oil tank. can some help me with some questions about the burners. How do I change over from the main propane line to the burners. I know that there has to be a piece in there that lets me light the fire. what is that piece called?

I am just finishing up the structural aspect with regard to my backyard hut. Not enough room on my deck for the grills so I built this. Going to add power, lighting, small side pony walls with lattice for climbing vines and an optional rear canvas rollup wall for winter months.

Did you pour footings for the 4 corner posts? What are the dimensions? Are the floor joists 2x6 or 2x8? What are you going to use for roofing? Sorry for so many questions, but I was thinking of doing something along this idea. I don't want to spend a lot, but I would like something for year round use and strong enough to survive a New England blizzard.

use a poured concrete floor or pavers on sand. less risk of fire, and less maintainance imo.

If I were to do it again, I would pour the footings. For mine I simply buried the piers and packed them with dirt. There was some sheer that I alleviated by bracing the back with 2x8's. Going to do a similar rail as the post above for the sides and back, leaving the front open. It's pretty darned sturdy and only cost about $300 to build.

What did you use for the floor joists, 2x6 or 2x8? How about the roof? Thanks.

My neighbor had a spare 4x6 that you see on the back support at the base, I built that to level then used 2x6 floor joists 22 inches on center...from there we racked the structure with front and side plates using 2x6's, once squared up, I just slipped the rafter 2x6's into pre-installed joist hangers, same as the sub floor structure.

Mine is about 9x13. It was a simple ballpark call when I thought about how big I wanted it, to reduce waste from lumber. When I first started out, it was just going to be a lean-to roof, no deck...see what happens?

I built a 10x12 pergola and then planted some fast growing vines beside each of the legs. It's been almost a year now and the vines are up on the top and providing some really cheap shade. Besides, they flower 2 or 3 times a year. Granted it doesn't work well for rain but then I usually don't plan to cook in the rain anyway. Probably cost me $200 for all the lumber and stuff. Did I mention that I'm a cheap SOB?
