will this granite get too hot outside? - I'm considering using the same granite for my BBQ countertops. I live in southern California... should i be concerned that the granite may get too hot?

This is actually custom concrete counter top, it has a polished smooth surface that looks like granite. This garden is in coastal Southern California, and it's fine here. You may choose lighter colors or use shade trees if your area gets very hot.

The counter top is actually honed black granite slab with a 3" square edge. The honing gives the granite a matte finish, better for exterior applications where dust can be an issue with glossy surfaces.

This is custom designed and built. The finish is smooth stucco and smooth concrete counter top. You can purchase the grill, drawers, doors, etc from many suppliers, such as Viking, Firemagic, and Lynx.

I'm confused. One comment says that this is honed black granite and another says it is concrete. Can you please specify which it is? Thank you!

Honed granite tends to show grease spots more readily than polished stone does, but any well sealed stone should clean up easily. Flamed granite is also a nice option if you prefer to stay away from a polished look, and I particularly like how soapstone looks.

This is a soapstone top, which is practically impervious to anything, but you'll need to re-treat it occasionally:

With counters they do a nice little trick on the edge by joining two pieces together (the side and the top) with a 45 degree angle and the result looks like an extra thick counter depth. This was you can choose any depth you want for that nice weighty look.

Hi Debora - Great Job btw! What is that white rectangle under sink? Also, do you know of any contained sink systems (no need for hook-up)?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Great Grill Setups Take the Party Outside
An elegant L-shaped barbecue counter creates plenty of room for prepping, grilling and bartending.
Houzz added this to Honed
Color enhancers or stains can be added to a honed stone, which will make the surface appear wet but not shiny, and will help hide glassware rings and food stains.Browse photos of honed countertops and other surfaces
