Why Is A Big Ridge Outdoor Kitchen The Best?

Big Ridge has spent years engineering the easiest and strongest outdoor kitchen system on the market today. From superior raw materials to our paten pending slip-n-lock support attachment system, our products have been developed to allow anyone to easily build the highest quality outdoor kitchen. Read on to see what sets us apart from the others....

Free Custom 3D Design

Big Ridge makes it easy to fully customize your own outdoor kitchen. We offer free design assistance from the comfort of your own home.

You can browse our plans, use our easy configurator, or send us a hand drawn plan and we will take it from there.

We simply work back and forth with you until you are happy with the design. All along the way, we provide you with 3D drawings and quotes so you can make well educated decisions on your investment.

Superior Structural Strength

Superior Steel

All great outdoor kitchens start with a superior foundation. We have engineered our outdoor kitchens using the highest quality raw materials available.

That's why we start with a frame constructed of fully welded Gatorshield galvanized commercial steel tubing. The same steel used in greenhouses and street signs.

Heavy Duty Triple Coat Galvanized Steel

All galvanized steel is not created the same. Our Gatorshield Steel is produced using a proprietary forming and coating process called Flo-Coat.

During this process high quality heavy gauge steel is formed, welded, cleaned, coated with three different coatings, cured, and then cut to length all within the same process.

This controlled process results in an extremely corrosion resistant steel tubing product. In addition, unlike our competitors steel, our steel is treated on the inside as well as the outside. This makes for superior steel structure capable of withstanding corrosion at a level not achievable by our competitors.

Gatorshield steel is commonly used in Greenhouses, Playground Equipment, Street Signs, and Awnings due to its superior corrosion resistance and strength.

Precision Welded Frames

We use industrial 16-gauge heavy duty
1-1/2" square tubing to construct our frames.

The frames are cut using precision machinery to achieve tolerances within
1/100th of an inch. This ensures a everything fits precisely every time.

We then fully weld the frames using industry leading gas metal arc welding technology to achieve the strongest welds in the industry.

Highest Weight Rating

In addition to our superior steel, our engineered structures provide a minimum of 2 vertical supports per corner versus 1 per corner that our competitors use.

Some call it overbuilt, we say, thanks, that's what we were going for!
Our outdoor kitchens are the strongest in the industry. Each linear foot of outdoor kitchen is rated to hold in excess of 1,000 lbs. This means each 4 foot module is capable of holding more than 4,000 lbs.

1-1/2" thick granite or concrete weighs about 24 lbs per square foot, that would be about 240 lbs for a standard 4 foot countertop. That leaves you about 3,760 lbs for whatever you would like to put on it.

Outdoor Rated Cement Board Sheathing Attached

Our frames are covered with Wonderboard Lite Outdoor Rated Backer Board. Wonderboard is a fiberglass mesh-reinforced cement backer board developed for residential and commercial outdoor use.

It has high-flexural strength, along with moisture resistance making it the ideal backer for stucco, stone, tile, brick, and most any finish materials you would like to use.

The Wonderboard is installed using porcelain coated backerboard screws specifically designed for attaching backerboard to steel.

Easiest To Handle, Assemble, And Finish

Easily Carried To Your Building Site

Our kits come securely packed in a protective pallet. Each module is delivered in panels.

This makes it very easy to carry them to your desired build site. This is especially handy when building on second story decks or hard to reach areas where a fully built outdoor kitchen would be difficult to access.

We Work Hard To Make It Easy!

Easily Identify Parts

In addition to clearly illustrated and simple instructions, we clearly label the panels and support pieces. The green labels on the panels have your name, which module they go to and what part of the module it belongs (front, back, etc.). The supports match up to the corresponding letter on the frames.

Fastest And Most Secure Bolt Together Assembly

Our panels are quickly and securely fastened using 3 high strength hex bolts per corner unlike some of the competition that uses 2 screws per corner.

Simply align the 2 panels, insert the bolts, and tighten them.
We even include the wrench, so you don't have to spend time looking for the correct tools!

Easiest Floor Installation

Our floors install easily, just slip the patent pending Slip-N-Lock Supports into the frame when installing the sides. Then simply slide the floor in prior to attaching the back panel.

Patent Pending Slip-N-Lock Supports

We also use our patent pending Slip-N-Lock Supports for all the appliance and countertop supports. This results in a stronger connection and eliminates the use of screws to attach them saving you time and hassle.

Even though we engineered our kits to need as few tools as possible, the few that you will need, we provide. This kit even includes an 18 Volt Cordless Drill.
