BBQ Islands San Diego Style – Where No Island is Prefabricated

Good, Better and Best
What’s the Difference?


The vast majority of BBQ Grill Islands, Outdoor Kitchen and Combination Outdoor Entertainment Center manufacturers use stamped sheet steel studsOK BBQ Island Frame Stamped Steel held together with self-tapping screws as a frame. You know; something like the “Erector Sets” you played with as a kid.

This method cuts cost because stamped sheet steel is lighter than the 16ga. Galvanized Structural Steel Tubing WE BUILD WITH, so it costs less to ship. The stamped sheet metal “Erector Set” types of frames are simply cheaper than real steel frames. Unfortunately the cost savings is rarely passed on to the customer. This is definitely NOT a BBQ Island San Diego Style!

The Real Cost to the Customer:

This “Erector Set” type manufacturing or BBQ Islands building technique generally results in sagging of the framework, (Screws work loose, sheet metal bends), which results in cracks on the counter top, stucco walls or stone veneer siding.


There are some manufacturers who use thin gauge steel tubing frames that are SPOT OR TACK welded together. While these temporary welds will hold or temporarily join two pieces of metal they do NOT make a fully welded joint. However, this method of BBQSpot Welding BBQ Grill Island Frame Island frame building does save considerable time in production, thereby lowering the production cost. But the results are the same.

The Real Cost to the Customer:

Once again a sagging of the framework, which in turn results in cracks on the counter top, stucco or stone veneer walls. (Caution: On either the Good or Better built frames, please refrain from standing on counter tops or allowing children to stand on them. The reasons should be obvious.
