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.

Isn't this a handsome one! BrylaneHome Grilling Gazebo

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.

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.

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.

Here's Where We Have Our Grill Gazebo

Even with these tall trees around, it can be too sunny. Certainly, the trees won't protect you for a sudden rain squall.

My husband has a scenic view into the woods while he's grilling. The roof gives him protection from sun or rain.

Last Summer, My Husband Built a New Deck for Dining and the Grill Gazebo

It was a ground level deck. Here it is under construction.

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...

What Do You Like to Cook on Your Grill?

Diane Cass from New York on April 02, 2015:

We need one of these. We've been thinking of building our own. This gives us some great ideas.

Jennifer P Tanabe from Red Hook, NY on January 12, 2015:

We grill in the summer when the weather permits, it's either raining or too hot - we clearly need a grillzebo!!

happynutritionist on June 03, 2013:

We cook almost everything from meat to potatoes to vegies on the grill in the summer...and today could really use one of these gazebos as it's raining a lot!

WordChipper on May 22, 2013:

I'm a steak lover. We have a grillzebo and I absolutely love it.

Cynthia Sylvestermouse from United States on January 08, 2013:

This is a really neat idea! Our neighbors have a gazebo with a grill and I have always wanted to copy them. I have to say though, after seeing your page, I am more tempted to go for that Four Season Solarium.

Shrimp!

These are wonderful canopies for your grills. Very classy.

@priscillab: My husband loves his grill gazebo!

priscillab on September 10, 2012:

I love grill cooking year round and a grillzebo would be fantastic! I never knew they made them.

khael on August 29, 2012:

Grill gazebos are definitely something I'll look into when we fix the old place.

anonymous on August 27, 2012:

What a fantastic idea for the grilling area. I didn't know there are grill centers. - Blessed! :)

Virginia Allain (author) from Central Florida on August 16, 2012:

@norma-holt: I hope you get decent rains so things can get back to normal soon.

norma-holt on August 16, 2012:

Love BBQ;s but rarely have them now due to fire risk. In Canberra we are banned from having naked flames outside from early October to March, except on some days when it rains or whatever. Great lens and good information and ideas well presented. Featured on Blessed by Skiesgreen 2012-2

@SpenceG: I consider one a good way to get more grilling going. No more cooking inside because it's drizzling outside or the sun is too strong.

SpenceG on July 17, 2012:

I could see how this is helpful. I'm the one who bbq for my relatives, so I tend to get burnt more often than not. These gazebos will prevent that.

Virginia Allain (author) from Central Florida on June 23, 2012:

@hntrssthmpsn: I love grilled food, so flavorful and not cooked in oil. Hubby does the grilling so I just have a few side dishes to prepare.

hntrssthmpsn on June 22, 2012:

We grill everything! I'm not a meat eater, but my son is, and I love grilled veggies. We've even grilled pizza :) In the summer, it's a great way to keep the heat outside where it belongs!
