Can I Build My Grill Into a Structure?

Written by

John Burns

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.
