You can’t deny the appeal of an outdoor kitchen. It is a warm, inviting place for your guests, and it gives you the chance to spread out and create a delectable meal while enjoying some beautiful weather at the same time.
Some outdoor kitchens can resemble small houses. In Florida, you want to try to stay away from having any of the elements of your kitchen made of wood, because our climate can lead to wood rot due to moisture, salt air and bugs. You’ll be better off using concrete for your cooking island, because it can withstand the climate and will need little to no maintenance.

- We typically use black steel piping for our installations. Copper tubing is usually allowed for propane but not for natural gas.
- The technician will first turn off the gas and attach the grill line and shut off valve.
- He will then make sure that all underground connections are wrapped with special tape that withstands corrosion due to rust. Once the connections are installed, he will test them for leaks.
- The exterior pipe will need to be buried about 12 to 18 inches.
