BBQ Islands can be placed anywhere in your backyard. KoKoMo Outdoor Kitchen Products are custom Prefabricated for each customer. This allows the Barbecue Islands to be build in KoKoMo Grills Phoenix, Arizona's BBQ Island Factory then ship it to your home. There is no need to have a contractor at your home doing this small of a job. Save your time and frustration with scheduling and permitting and purchase a Prefab BBQ Island from KoKoMo Grills. We have been building the best BBQ Islands since 2001 and know how to make them last a lifetime.

Kokomo Grills was established with goals of designing and constructing the best BBQ Grills & BBQ Islands in the industry. Through smart design, superior construction techniques, and quality control. We are proud to say we have achieved this goal!

KoKoMo Grills Prefab BBQ Island Construction details


The most important aspect of framing is a thorough knowledge of structural design and engineering. Large spans are becoming more prevalent in our industry, our competitors build BBQ Islands on two-foot centers. At Kokomo Grills, we build on a maximum requirement of one-foot centers using 20-gauge steel. This is what prevents our BBQ Islands from twisting and cracking.

Island Wall Construction - CONCRETE BOARD

The wall’s of our islands are constructed with a cement board made by “Hardie Backer”. This material is strong and also impermeable to water. Hardie Backer is mold proof, fire proof, and water proof.


After application of the Hardie Backer, the island is then taped with fiber mesh. We apply coats of “Dryvit brand” flexes with our climate of hot and cold, essentially guaranteeing that your island will not crack or peel. While this quality may go unnoticed on a showroom floor, it is something that will keep your island looking great years after your purchase.


All of our counter-tops are floated; this ensures the counter to be level preventing cracks in the tile. We use only the best porcelain tiles and natural stones including a variety of travertine, marble, and granite.


Our islands are supported along the base of framing and raised slightly off the ground, supported by a waterproof Trex composite decking that carries a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty. Our unique system design offers several benefits to our customers.
