Steve’s BBQ Haven – part 1

Back in 2020 my collection of BBQ’s and smokers was too big for the patio to handle! I decided (with a little prompting from the wife) that I needed somewhere different to store them – apparently 4 was too much for the patio!

My son had outgrown the ninja warrior climbing frame I had built him a few years earlier, so it was decided, dismantle that and build somewhere to house the equipment.

I decided to keep it simple with a basic L shaped design that I could place (and hide) all of the equipment behind. Went with a bar top for some extra room to help with food preparation and of course a place for the essential grilling tool, the beers.

Didn’t plan on doing anything too fancy, just wanted it to have a look worn / rustic. Added the silver grates last minute just to ‘open’ it up a bit and over the next year added lights and signs.

It ended up working out really well! Whenever we got together (in between Covid outbreaks) it became a focal point for the dads to gather around, grill and enjoy a few cold ones!
