Any info on the build of that bbq and specifically the concrete counter and waterfall edge would be greatly appreciated.. Have done concrete counter tops before..but the waterfall edge on yours a very nice touch for a modern design..the smooth finish and lack of expansion joints are the other details that I think really set it off.. I'm inAZ, and out here... I'm concerned about the temperature as the concrete cures so it can be finished smooth like that with forms removed while not quite dry... And cracks in the concrete are also a big potential issue that I see here in AZ without expansion joints. There is a lot of movement in our soil..lots of rebar I guess..but even 10" + thick post-tension home foundations crack here...
