Outdoor Grill & BBQ Islands
Are you curious to learn more about our grill islands? Or even grill islands in general?
There’s an overwhelming amount of options out there… It can be difficult to make sense of it all.
Allow us to sort through the noise.
Types of Outdoor Kitchen Island Kits
In the outdoor kitchen industry… There are three types of grill island kits you will encounter:
Modular outdoor kitchens are an option you’ll often see online or at big box stores. These products are generally sold in units that you can piece together to create a full outdoor kitchen.
Ready-to-finish is another popular outdoor kitchen option. These brands can also be found at big box stores and elsewhere online. Though they require a bit more work to build, ready-to-finish outdoor kitchens are more customizable than modular.
Prefabricated outdoor kitchens are another common option. These are quite similar to RTF systems… With just a few differences. These differences are mainly in the assembly / build process.
Ready-to-assemble outdoor kitchens
Ready-to-assemble outdoor kitchens. RTA systems are the new kids on the block! Ready-to-assemble systems combine the benefits of modular and RTF… With fewer of the pitfalls. This is the grill island kit we offer here at RTA.

DIY Outdoor BBQ Island
If you’re a big DIYer… You’re probably wondering, “How do you make a BBQ island?”
Well, there are varying levels of do-it-yourself when it comes to outdoor kitchens.
Normally, when people think of an barbecue island DIY project… They think of building from scratch.
Now, you can definitely do this! But if you don’t have a decent amount of construction experience… This can be an absolute bear of a project!
The nice thing is… There are DIY outdoor kitchen projects you truly can complete yourself. Without a ton of construction knowledge.
What are they?
Well, they’re some of the options we just talked about!
RTF brands and RTA are all accessible DIY choices. The only one that you may find a bit tricky is an RTF system due to the fact you have to apply the finish yourself.
You enjoy that sense of accomplishment… Without all the stress.

Frequently Asked Questions
A grill island is a synonym for an outdoor kitchen. It’s an outdoor island fully equipped with appliances. Of course, there will be a grill in a grill island… But you’ll also find a wide array of other outdoor kitchen appliances. Refrigerators, sinks, storage, and more.
Once again… It depends!
The installation method you choose will directly affect the cost. Say you choose a prefabricated outdoor kitchen option like RTA. The work is 95% done for you already.
In this case… You can install it yourself in a few hours with a friend. With no need to hire anyone… You completely eliminate the installation cost there.
On the other hand, you could hire a contractor to install your prefab BBQ island. Expect this to run you anywhere from $700 – $1,500.
You may also decide to build your BBQ island completely from scratch. It will take days or weeks for installation depending on your design. Hiring a contractor to build your island this way could add thousands of dollars in installation costs.
There are many BBQ island solutions out there. How you make one depends on the method you choose!
Most commonly, BBQ islands are made from a frame. They can be made from wood, metal, or concrete block.
If the frame is metal or wood, you’ll attach cement board to create a surface. From there, you apply the finish you desire. It could be stone, brick, tile, stucco, etc. Drop in your countertop, install appliances, hook up utility and gas lines… And you’re good to go.
The steps are simple… But it definitely requires some construction know-how to ensure being properly installed.
Perhaps you’re interested in a more modern approach to BBQ island construction. In that case, consider RTA. Our outdoor kitchens are frameless… Which eliminates multiple steps in assembly.
Instead of frames, we utilize structural concrete panels. These panels are constructed and designed with longevity in mind. Even better? The finishes are already incorporated into the panels.
You simply fasten the panels together, drop in your countertop, install appliances, and hook up utility lines. No need to fuss with constructing frames… Attaching cement board… And applying your own finish.
Anything you would make on your cart style grill, and more! Steaks, hamburgers, hot dogs, and kabobs are standard fare… But you can do even more with a grill island. Consider adding a flat top grill, outdoor pizza oven, or side burners for added functionality.
A grill island is the perfect way to upgrade your patio or outdoor living space. Enjoying your backyard and hosting gatherings are far easier with a grill island. There’s a central area for everyone to mingle… And a complete station to make food for everyone!
A grill island is more similar to an outdoor kitchen. It’s not just a cart model grill… It’s a complete outdoor kitchen setup. You’ll have the grill, countertops, other appliances, and maybe even bar seating. It’s a complete cooking station.
Absolutely! Select a BBQ island finish that complements your paver style. You’ll also just want to make sure that your pavers are level and have correct pitch. Otherwise, your BBQ island will be uneven and cause issues!
Yes, you can put a grill island on a deck. You will just have to ensure that your island isn’t too heavy. If it is… You’ll have to install structural footings to hold the additional weight.
