Default New BBQ Area

Hi, here's my new side yard bbq area project in progress. It's all concrete and the area will eventually have a pergola over it as well. My smokers and other freestanding grills will reside in the nook at the far side of the counter.
Ground slabs will eventually get stained and bbq counter base, color stuccoed.
Thanks for looking!


First order of business was to completely knock down 8 feet of the block wall, plus some more to reduce height to open up the area.


Dry stacked and filled 6" blocks over a bed of 4" slab...


Formed and poured concrete countertop...


Forms removed, counter eventually will get polished and sealed...


Poured more ground slabs, temporarily placed charcoal grill to check for fit...


Dry stacked and poured 8" blocks for retaining wall...

That is very nice! Looks like you have done a lot of hard labor there. You are on a steep slope that creates even more work but you've done a fine job! Kep us posted.
