Still, some are larger and can be used to fit additional gazebo furniture, such as dining tables and other kitchen appliances highlighted below.

Barbeque gazebos come with either a canopy top, usually made from polyester, and also feature stainless steel or polycarbonate hardtop; both materials are recommended because they are weatherproof and resistant to rust and UV damage.

Does the Size of a Barbeque Gazebo Matter?

Most barbecue and grill gazebos are 8 feet by 5 feet; some are larger, and with a DIY barbeque gazebo you can increase the size of the BBQ gazebo. If you want to include a dining area in your gazebo, you will require a much larger one.

When buying or building a barbeque gazebo, you must determine the number of seatings and the appliances you will include in your gazebo. Modern barbeque gazebos are an extension of your kitchen rather than a standalone outdoor space; building a custom gazebo is recommended to increase your home’s value.

What materials are best for a barbeque gazebo?

For the best kitchen appliances such as cabinets, shelves tops, and devices, we recommend outdoor grade powder-coated steel; countertops also need to be considered; if you would like to include countertops on your barbeque gazebo we recommend choosing concrete, granite, or porcelain.

What to put in a barbeque gazebo?

There are many outdoor kitchen accessories that you can add to your barbeque gazebo, depending on the size of your gazebo. Still, before adding additional accessories, it’s essential to consider the space available on your gazebo and make sure the level is flat and hard. There are no combustible things surrounding your kitchen accessories.

Here are some kitchen appliances you might use to upgrade your barbeque gazebo.

Outdoor Ovens and BBQs

An oven installation is essential to any outdoor kitchen, and a wide range of options are available; however, we recommend the Ooni Karu Multi-Fuel Outdoor Pizza Oven that uses wood and gas to cook pizza, and cook steak, fish, or vegetables.

Regarding barbeque grills, choosing a stainless-steel BBQ grill is recommended for its ability to withstand the harsh outdoor environment; we recommend the Char-Broil 4-Burner Cart Style Liquid Propane Gas Grill that is made of stainless steel.

Sinks and Storage.

Storage space is essential to any outdoor barbeque space, the installation of kitchen drawers; we recommend products such as Mophorn Outdoor Kitchen Drawers that have triple access BBQ drawers and are made from stainless steel able to withstand the outdoors.

Outdoor Refrigerators

An outdoor refrigerator can be a valuable accessory to your barbeque gazebo that can save you from having multiple trips to your house to pick up beverages when dining and entertaining guests in your gazebo.

It’s essential to ensure your outdoor refrigerator can withstand outdoor conditions. To make choosing the best outdoor refrigerator easier, we recommend the EdgeStar 24 Inch Wide, 142 Can Built-in Outdoor Beverage Cooler, which is ideal for large barbeque gazeboes due to its size.
