Can I Build My Grill Into a Structure?

The landscape of the American backyard has transformed over the years, and now more than ever, the popularity of the “outdoor kitchen” is on the rise. Rather than having a free-standing grill, many people prefer to build them into a structure.

So, can a Weber grill be built into a structure?

The answer is some Weber grills can, and some cannot. We make two models that are designed to be built-in. 

Both of these models are available in propane or natural gas versions, and are meant to be used exclusively in built-in structures. The island structures in the photos are not included, and meant for visualization purposes only.

So, why shouldn’t other Weber grills be built-in?

The answer is because special designing and testing go into making it possible for a grill to built-in, and there are ventilation concerns that need to be considered.

The Summit S-460 and S-660 are the only models that have had these issues addressed. If any other Weber model is built-in we do not know how it might behave, or if it will be safe to use. It’s for these reasons that if you do choose to build-in other models the warranty on the grill is voided.

If you’re looking for a built-in Weber model, the Summit S-460 and Summit S-660 are the way to go.
