So I want to build an outdoor kitchen, Nothing with plumbing but a L shaped work surface with cabinets with my existing freestanding grill incorporated plus my Big Green egg. My question is, when my grill dies and I need to purchase another one - What do I do about replacing my grill when I designed my L shaped outdoor kitchen around it? are there standard grill dimensions that I need to go by?

So, the best thing is to "incorporate" on one end or the other.

Or, if you put the grill within the long section put the sections on casters so you can "adjust" the width of the opening.

WE had a client that wanted an outdoor kitchen on his 3500 sq ft one story. We designed a nice 1100 sq ft covered patio for him, put the cooking wall on the exterior wall, we got the cabinetry and located it like he wanted so it fit his stainless grill. Then we attached the cabinets that were mounted on casters to the wall with latches like you would see on a tool box. It turned out a lot more solid than I thought it would be. With a setup like that you can clean behind it, spray for bugs, and generally move it where you want it. And it gets the cabinetry off of the concrete which makes it a lot more weather proof not to mention if a blowing rain is an issue, just unsnap it and move in towards the house out of the rain. For this client, we also ran a gas line for him from his house propane tank to the grille location. It allow him to use his house propane instead of the small tanks that are always empty at the wrong time. He can still use them but has the convenience of a 1000 gallon tank. Turned out a lot better than I thought it would.
