Every year we attend the International Pool, Spa and Patio Expo, held this year in New Orleans, seeking the best products available to bring into the Rochester market. At the most recent show we were blown away by Kokomo BBQ Islands. They are so stylish, sturdy and well-designed–far superior to any of the other offerings we saw. These guys have thought of everything you might dream of having in an outdoor BBQ Island; and we’re excited to share them with you. Kokomo was established with goals of designing and constructing the best BBQ Islands in the industry through smart design, superior construction techniques, and quality control.
We know that you’ve come to trust the products Pettis Pools & Patio carries represent the best value for your dollar and are quality products.
Kokomo BBQ Islands meet our standards by using the following:
The most important aspect of framing is a thorough knowledge of structural design and engineering. Large spans are becoming more prevalent in our industry, our competitors build BBQ Islands on two-foot centers. At Kokomo Grills, we build on a maximum requirement of one-foot centers using 20-gauge steel. This is what prevents our BBQ Islands from twisting and cracking.
Island Wall Construction
The walls of our islands are constructed with a cement board made by “Hardie Backer”. This material is strong and also impermeable to water. Hardie Backer is mold-proof, fireproof, and waterproof.
After application of the Hardie Backer, the island is then taped with fibermesh. We also apply coats of “dryvit brand” flexes with our climate of hot and cold, essentially guaranteeing that your island will not crack or peal. While this quality may go unnoticed on a showroom floor, it is something that will keep your island looking great years after your purchase.
All of our countertops are floated; this ensures the counter to be level preventing cracks in the tile. We use only the best porcelain tiles and natural stones including a variety of travertine, marble, and granite.
Our islands are supported along the base of framing and raised slightly off the ground, supported by a waterproof trex composite decking that carries a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty. Our unique system design offers two key benefits to our customers.
1) Your island is supported consistently throughout its “entire” frame, not just the corners.
2) You are able to easily hose our under your island, preventing moss and dirt build up around the edges of your island.
By using heavy-duty 304 stainless steel for all the access doors and storage spaces these BBQ islands create a professional-level outdoor kitchen. The side burners are made of cast brass for superior heat retention; they are perfect for soups or side dishes. Available accessories include: ice bins, a waterproof iPod docking station/FM tuner with waterproof speakers, a rotisserie, grill light and a paper towel holder that is protected from the elements.
