Outdoor Kitchen Island Steel


i really wanted to get into galvanized steel for this 7ft frame and even get some studs but the suppliers in my area are not having it.All i could find was stainless steel in 16g square tube.This is some strong stuff but I'm second guessing stainless steel truly holding up in high heat and damp spaces for years to come.The way these kitchens are constructed look like they can harbor some good moisture over time so what do you guys think is the best option other then galvanized.

Stainless is much more corrosion resistant than galvanized.

Re: Outdoor Kitchen Island Steel


Build one using common exterior finishes wrapped around basic PT framing with backer-board and choice of countertop. Everything else frame-out the opening to fit the grill, a few SS storage compartments, etc. and you all set.

Re: Outdoor Kitchen Island Steel


There definitely are different grades of stainless. Cheaper stuff will rust, higher quality won't.

My brother in laws stainless charbroil rusted out, I have no worries about my Weber genesis doing that

You have it backward. Those are the characteristics of galvanized.

Well yes there are different grades and i just don't got to much time to look at that.I think 304 or 316 stainless will be more then good enough.i guess you should stick to industry standard grades and you should be fine.
