I have an old gas grill that I really like – old style with lava rocks. The grill shell is cast aluminum – so it is essentially indestructible. I have replaced the guts of it several times. However, the legs / stand are another story. They are rusted and are in pretty bad shape.
My question is this: Does anyone have experience in building a stand or cabinet for a gas grill from wood (cedar maybe). The real concern is the heat. I am wondering if I would be OK with a wooden stand if I had some fire brick or even a concrete paver between the bottom of the grill and the wooden support. Leaving a little gap on the sides would not be a problem, but I’m concerned about the bottom.
