1 Ever since my grill and smoker got kicked off the pool deck I've wanted to build a small slab/patio in the backyard for my grill and smoker. So I started by digging out an 8' x 12' area.
2 8' x 12' would be large enough for the grill, smoker and a chair or two.
4 But then I started drinking beer. Digging some more. Drinking more beer and next thing you know my 8' x 12' patio had grown to 13' x 15'. And I decided it would be much better to pour a new step from the pool deck down onto the grillin smokin patio.
5 Now we're talkin! There is a considerable change in elevation in this part of the yard so it required considerable dirt moving. And beer drinking. Here you can see Ralphie eying the beautiful fresh dirt/mud pit.
7 I hired 'You Cart it Concrete' in Orlando to pour/finish the slab. The head concrete guy was quite impressed with the engineering of my forms.
18 We can see that the grill and smoker fit comfortably.
19 We are going to plant a nice Queen palm in this spot.
