Custom built in grill islands without the built in bbq

This is an example of a custom outdoor kitchen counter built without a barbecue in the island.  Although it is not common there are a lot of clients who really enjoy the mobility of the barbecue on a cart with wheels.  We also encounter clients who have an awesome grill that does not need to be replaced but they still want a custom counter space built for serving and entertaining.  The custom island in this image was built to allow the home owner to keep their gas grill.

We built the counter space with a single drop-in side burner for boiling water and cooking with a skillet and we built in a space for the trash can, refrigerator and cubby holes for leaving flat ware, plates, napkins, spices, mixers, etc.  The back side of the counter has an overhang so guests can sit at stools or stand and be served.  The counter is a standard 36 inch height but we stepped up the bar top fro the overhang to standard bar height at 42 inches.  Although we have built islands that stay at counter height and drop down to dining table height and there are chairs and stools for these heights of overhang it is definitely easier to locate bar stools designed for bar height seating.
