Hi, this is my first post but I've been browsing for a few months and thought I'd say "hi" and show a pic of the new grill. Got some good ideas for building it on here. Well, I've finally finished (except for sealing the stone and attaching the vents) and so far I'm pleased. It's not nearly as nice as some I've seen on here but it'll certainly work for me. It's a 5-burner Jenn-Air (lp) I got from the local Lowes last year on clearance. No side burners etc, just a fridge (gotta have cold beverages for the firepit too!) Haven't had a chance to use the grill yet but I can affirm that the fridge works perfectly. :mrgreen: The patio is still a work in progress but hope to have everything finished up by Summer. BTW... gave the old Weber to the wife's folks.. Gotta keep them happy. :wink:

Ya..not nearly as nice as some. It's a whole lot nicer than most!
Good job. Where's the new Webber/smoker going? Out with the old, in with the new? I too have a nice Jenn-Air gasser, but you gotta have a smoker too.:-D
Nice to meet you Smitty. Head to Cattle Call and introduce yourself.

Oh wow! If I were your neighbor I'd be jealous or at least making an effort to get to know you so I could be invited to all the great times that are bound to happen there.

Thanks guys.. It was a lot of work but most of it due to the fact the patio and knee-wall was built before I decided to make the grill. So I had to incorporate two of the walls into the foundation of the grill... and to make it even more difficult the patio has a pretty good slope to it so trying to get everything even and level was a serious pain!

The top is made of black granite tiles. (was clean that morning and green by the evening due to all the pollen.) :mad: The sides were slate tiles I cut in half to get the brick pattern. It was an excuse to get another tool (wet tile saw). The only problem is now I don't have an excuse not to do other tile projects in the house the wife wants. I have a feeling the Honey-do list just got longer. :icon_shock1:

I built a similar patio and outdoor kitchen in my last house, It took a lot of work, especially bringing materials to the rear of the house. But I enjoyed it even more when it was done. Enjoy it this year.
PS I also bought the Jenn-Air, keep all the paperwork, it isn't actually jenn-Air that makes them but a different company that Lowes contract with and uses the jenn-Air name. Sounds fishy but true. Also get some time behind the grill, Mine had hot spots that I had to get use too. But enjoyed the big cooking surface.
