BBQ Grill Platform Idea Help


Hey All,

I've got a screened in porch on the back of my house that's about 2' off the ground. To the right of the porch, I've got a patio that is ground level. I was thinking it may be kind of neat to have a sliding screen door on the right of the porch, and have a platform outside the opening that will raise and lower a gas grill from the patio to the porch, and swivel around so we can use it if we're entertaining on the patio, or use it and stay dry if we want to BBQ under the porch. Any suggestions on how to make this? What would I use for the lift? Any kits or anything that could be easily altered/converted for this kind of purpose? Any suggestions or creative ideas would be awesome. Thanks!

Cheaper to buy a second BBQ.

Need some DOM steel tubing for the vertical shaft, with a flange welded on at the bottom that can be bolted to the concrete patio. Then use the table and clamp mechanism from a drill press to hold the grill on the tubing.

If you use the clamp and table from a floor standing drill press, there should be a toothed rack so you can crank it up and down.
