      The photos don't show the fire box with air intake located on the floor of fire box. Grates will be installed flush with cement counter

          This was an original design that i had thought about for some time. having a bbq island has many benefits.
          The ability to have plenty of area to cook and to present meals for cook outs or just a place to conjure around a couple of burgers cooking. Not to mention the total length of counter is 20 feet .
          I will be posting the finishing photos. next up is the cement stain and sealer then custom cooking grate.
          I hope you all enjoyed my photos

          If you build it they will come.

              Wow, that looks amazing. I might be seeing your advice on staining and polishing concrete if I end up going that route.
              Well done

                  Beautiful concrete finish! Did you use acid staining? Have you installed the grates and cooked on it? I'm looking forward to some pics of it in action .

                      That is a nice looking job. We ended up using a water based stain, which is wearing off after 3 years, as the acid stain process seemed intimidating. Maybe it is time to strip and give it a go. It looks like you wet your slab down before you took the pic - if yes, what does it look like dry?

                        I used acid stain, and it started wearing off after a few years as well. Weather just takes it off. The one part I have that stays dry is in pretty good shape. But the part that gets rained on, it is pretty much gone

                          I used a pure tung oil. ( food grade) . As the oil penetrated the cement ,the finish was more of a matte finish
