Grill Gazebo – Do You Need Wood, Metal, Or Hardtop?

grill gazebo

The reason I am starting to write about a grill gazebo is that I don’t like to stand outside next to my grill in the rain.

I had to build my own DIY grill gazebo just to save some money and I had to connected it to my shed.

If I did not have done that I probably would have opted for a hardtop BBQ gazebo for the simple reason that I grill year-round and try to stay out of the snow also.

Since this website is all about grilling I will try to focus on the outdoor gazebos that will work well for this and try to give you some grill gazebo ideas.

Benefits Of A Grill Gazebo

Although it is pretty obvious what the benefits are here are some reasons to start thinking about one.

  • Keeps you out of the rain and other precipitation.
  • Keeps your grill dry while you use it.
  • Will let your grill cover last longer.
  • Improves the life span of your grill.
  • Keeps your prep table dry.

Grill Gazebo Types

When I started to do some research on
BBQ gazebos are perfect for us outdoor grill masters I was surprised by the high number of available types.

They range from square and rectangular to round and oval. I guess you can find any shape you like and what fits your grilling area.

The size you need of course depends on the size of the outdoor grills we use.

Grill Gazebo Materials

I found that you can basically use any type of material for a BBQ gazebo.

I have seen them made from Canvas, Vinyl, Metal, and wood. Those are the most used materials and each of them has pros and cons that I will discuss later.

Grill Gazebo Brands

It is easy to buy a gazebo for general use. However, a gazebo for the grill is a little different story. I found one brand that has a whole section of grill gazebos.

Since I am planning on writing about more brands on their own page I have started on a separate page for the Sunjoy Grill Gazebo.

Sunjoy BBQ Gazebo

The reason I started to dig deeper in the Sunjoy grill gazebo is that I found that they have a large selection and I read some pretty good things about them.

I believe that basically any Gazebo will be suited to be used as a grill gazebo but a specially designed one might do even a little better.

About Sunjoy

The Sunjoy store states that the quality of the products is their top priority. The production process is filled with strenuous tests.

Waterproof and high durability is one of the pillars of the Sunjoy company.

I will be having a good look at all the models and used materials to give you a good choice.

Sunjoy Grill Gazebo – My Opinion

Although I am not done yet with all the reviews of the models, types, and models I think after reading many customer reviews and based on my own experience that I can tell you that I think it is safe to recommend them as a good buy.

Although their website only shows the 5 x 8 Ft as being suited as a grill gazebo we all know that in many cases we need more room for our grills and all the accessories and things that we use.

I like to have room for my grill side table that I use to prep everything I need.

If you like to see what I use you can have a look at my stainless steel outdoor prep table.

I will have a look at some other models that will fit the needs of a backyard grill master soon.

If you like to go straight to their store you can have a look here at the SunJoy store and find your perfect gazebo for the BBQ.

The reason I like the Sunjoy grill gazebo is that it seems to me that they have a nice section of gazebos that are developed for the grill and BBQ.

You can read them all you can see my Sunjoy Grill Gazebo page and find all the models there.
