What is a Hardtop Grilling Gazebo?
For some people, barbecue grilling has practically become a way of life. They have parties centered around their grill and competitions for the best meat. Why not bring this tradition home to your very own backyard with a DIY outdoor grill station underneath a SOJAG BBQ grill gazebo?
Many people use hardtop gazebos as an entryway to a gorgeous garden or a gathering spot for company. All hardtop gazebos we manufacture offer a stylish and functional way to open your backyard space up for gatherings while maintaining a sophisticated and cozy vibe. But a metal roof grill canopy takes the style of a gazebo and adds additional functionality.
A hardtop BBQ gazebo is perfect for any grill master looking to up the aesthetic of their backyard patio or deck. They offer ample protection for grills and can be used as a stylish grill cover year-round. When cooking, your hardtop grilling gazebo will offer protection from the elements, and it features convenient and practical areas for food prep.

These ultra-strong and durable gazebos will be the best investment you’ve made since purchasing your grill!
How to Use a Grill Canopy
Your outdoor grill is an investment in itself. When you cook for your family and guests, sometimes that means doing so in the rain or the blazing sun. With a hardtop grill gazebo, you simply place your grill under the galvanized steel roof and enjoy shade while you tend to the grill. In addition, you don’t have to worry about your food being exposed to the elements, either. Your Grill Gazebo will also keep you safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays. This means a more cool and comfortable day for you and the entire family.
When you’re not using your grill, your hardtop grilling gazebo will keep your expensive grill and equipment safe and out of the sun’s harmful rays. These units are also water-resistant, meaning they’ll provide your grill some protection against condensation no matter what the season.
UV Rays Can Damage your Skin and your Grill
As soon as the temperature starts to rise, it’s time to take advantage of outdoor activities and spend more time cooking in the backyard. But with the extra BBQ time comes an increased risk of skin cancer. Sun protection is your best line of defense when it comes to skin cancer prevention, and the American Cancer Society says staying in the shade can be one of the best lines of defense for your skin.
Staying in the shade and consistently applying sunscreen are two of the best ways to provide protection for your skin and reduce your chance of skin cancer. In addition, your grill gazebo canopy will help keep you shaded from the sun and its harmful UVA and UVB rays.
While your personal health is important, so is the well-being of your prized possession. Snow, rain, hail, sun, and high winds can all damage the exterior and the working elements of your grill. Winds can cause dirt and dust to get inside your grill, making you have to constantly clean it before barbecuing. Also, If you live in an area with severe sunlight, your grill can fade and external parts can crack.
A small grill gazebo can go a long way towards keeping your grill protected from the elements.

Have the Professionals Install Your Grilling Gazebo Canopy
Your SOJAG barbecue gazebo is a major investment and can be hard to install if you’re not a very handy person. Instead of assembling it yourself, you can have the professionals do it for you.
ShelterLogic Group has teamed up with Go Configure to provide professional installation services for your SOJAG BBQ gazebo. The service provides simple and easy assembly to get your BBQ grill canopy structure set up efficiently and effectively in your outdoor space.
Before your outdoor hardtop gazebo can be installed, you will need to have a base made out of wood, concrete, or brick fully prepared. If you have an existing patio or deck, you can save some money and install your gazebo on it. This can save you a lot of time in the installation process. However, if you do not have an existing base for your hardtop BBQ gazebo, you’re going to have to build one.
Depending on the layout of your backyard, it may be a big job, or it might take just an hour or two. If you are handy, this is something that you can do yourself and with the help of others. If you are not very handy, you can hire a general contractor to create your base.
Additionally, depending on your grill preference, you might need some wiring and electrical access, or a gas hookup. In these cases, it is best to choose a site closer to your home. If you have a freestanding grill, perhaps equipped with a gas tank, or one that is heated by charcoal, then the entire yard is your oyster.
When you get your outdoor grill gazebo, anchor it down properly. You may want to bury the legs of your metal grill gazebo at the bottom or ground them in concrete blocks. Ensure that they hold fast so that the entire barbecue gazebo area stays safe during a storm or high winds.
