Shelter the Grill from Sun and Rain with a Grill Gazebo
Last summer we added a gazebo for our grill area. It was the best thing we could have added to our deck. Now my husband grills all summer long undeterred by rain or hot sun.
We're enjoying our grilled and barbecued meals so much. If you've been thinking of getting one of these grill gazebos, you've come to the right place. I've rounded up a lovely selection of these grillzebos. There's sure to be one that's just right for the space you have on your patio, deck or yard.
This summer we're even more glad to have this shelter for our grilling area. We've had rain for all of June and off-and-on for early July. Undeterred, he is out there grilling something tasty 3 or 4 times a week.

If you live in an area with heavy snows, you'll want to brace the roof. We have a different grillzebo, but because of the weight of snow in New Hampshire, we put a wood timber with a crossbar at top and bottom (like a capital letter "i") to keep the structure from bending when there is lots of snow.
One with a Curved Roof
Don't you love the curved roof on this grill gazebo! I think that curving roof is a classy look and certainly will keep off the rain and give some sun shelter.
This one is roomy enough, that the grill master can have some company while the steaks are sizzling. Everyone likes to gather around the food and certainly the chef enjoys some company while he or she attends to the grilling.
Protect the Roof in Winter
We've not had a problem, but just-in-case we put supports under the roof for the winter. Don't want the aluminum roof caving in from the weight of snow.
Steel Frame Grill Gazebo - by Living Accents
Don't let rain spoil your BBQing. This classy looking grillzebo protects the grill and the chef. Architecturally interesting so you are adding not just a shelter for your grill, but also a very nice feature to your landscaping.
You can add your own enhancements like an overhead light or S hooks to hang your BBQ tools.
Very stylish roof! They've done a good job giving you shelter for the grill and at a VERY affordable price.
Since the roof is a soft roof, not metal, you can replace it later if it wears out. Where we use ours in a heavy snow area, we would want to remove the cover for the winter and put it back on in the spring. With a metal roof grillzebo, we have to brace the roof which 3 feet of snow would collapse.
In other areas, you could leave the cover on year round.

Our Grilling Area
How We Use Our Grill Gazebo
We'd invited my husband's brother over for a cookout today. The forecast was for sunny and 80 degrees. Perfect weather for a BBQ.
We have potato salad, fresh corn on the cob and a thick slice of ham waiting in the refrigerator. It should be an easy meal on the grill. Denny does that part and I shuck the corn and steam it for 9 or 10 minutes in the microwave.
I pile all the plates and side foods onto a tray and take it out to the deck where we'll eat. Unfortunately it now has turned rainy with 90% chance of showers. Still, we won't let it spoil our get-together.
We love our grill gazebo that shelters hubby while he grills. There's a larger gazebo over the dining table on the deck, so we'll be fine. The temperature of 73 degrees is OK too. I'll just have to hustle from the house to the deck with the tray to avoid getting too wet.

Last Summer, My Husband Built a New Deck for Dining and the Grill Gazebo
We Changed Our Deck for the Grill Gazebo - Here's the Story
- Deck with Planters
We like our neighbors, but having some privacy on the deck is important to us too. When my husband started building a deck to hold his grill, it started out as a simple, ground-level wood deck. Before long, it evolved into a super outdoor living...
Our Choice for Our Next Grill Gazebo
The 3-part roof looks fabulous on this and should distribute the snow load for the heavy winters we have in New Hampshire. It won't be by the pool in our case, we'd have it in our wooded surroundings. Should look good and keep hubby dry while he grills a steak or steams some lobsters. We always cook the lobster outside so we don't get lobster smell inside the house.
