  1. I love all of these that now I need to get busy planning my outdoor cooking area!! Do you know of any resources to modify the smaller space ones to include the Big Green Egg? That’s a must for me. Thanks!!

    1. Your installation contractor should be able to handle that for you. There are many Belgard outdoor kitchens that include Big Green Eggs. If you need help finding a qualified contractor, visit our contractor locator gallery.

  2. If you love hosting outdoor dinner parties in summer season, then it is the time to begin the fun. To give justice to your home and to get rid from exhausting hassle such as running back and forth to indoor kitchen it’s time to invest money on outdoor kitchen that include built in grills which are basically designed to make life tranquil and as well the parties more enjoyable and most importantly the home more valuable.

  3. Are there covers available for the grill on the outdoor grill islands? We have the Bristol series. Thanks

    1. The actual grills are supplied by a third party vendor, but surely covers are available through them or online through a retailer. We will get the ordering info and post it shortly.
