While Kamado grills are undeniably awesome to have, there are some precautions that need to be taken in order to grill safely. We outline a bunch of those in our Kamado 101 series, and one of the most important safety tips is to make sure your Kamado remains on a non-flammable / heat resistant surface.
While Kamado and other manufactures do make safe grill tables for you, most of the time they’re super expensive and there isn’t all that much to them. Recently, I stumbled across these awesome instructions on how to build your own Kamado grill table! The project was executed by Jen from The House of Wood, and the end result is a beautiful and functioning Kamado grill table plus some saved money in your pocket!
Here’s what you’ll need (plus plenty of wood):
- Safety glasses and hearing protection
- Tape measure
- Table saw
- Jig saw
- Pocket hole jig
Like I said, Jen did an awesome job with this table and broke down the instructions so that we can all follow in her footsteps. You can view her journey building the table here, or access the building plans here. Happy grilling!
