Propane vs Natural Gas
One of the first decisions you’ll likely make is what fuel type your built-in gas grill will use. Natural gas is a great option, but if an existing source is not readily available you’ll need to consult your local utility company or a licensed plumber. The cost of running a new line to your home for natural gas may be a consideration. Propane is more readily available and can be purchased in portable tanks or stored in larger tanks on your property and refilled by a gas company. Liquid propane is heavier and burns hotter than natural gas, requiring different ventilation systems.
Don’t Ignore the Grill Accessories
While your new built-in barbeque will be the focal point of your outdoor kitchen design, you’ll want to consider some island accessories to really make your outdoor kitchen shine. From safety concerns to luxury add-ons, we’ve got you covered.
If your built-in grill will be in a covered space, you’ll need to provide adequate ventilation for your grill insert with an outdoor rated vent hood. An insulated grill jacket is necessary if placing your drop-in grill into an island constructed of combustible material like wood. Gas shut off valves and vent panels are a great layer of added protection in case of emergency. Keep in mind, you’ll need to install access doors below your grill head to access plumbing connections.
A propane tank bin can be a stylish and convenient way to hide those unsightly tanks. A great compliment to a grill insert is a matching side burner or flat top griddle. Finally, a beverage center and/or outdoor refrigerator can be the perfect finishing touch to your outdoor space.
