How to Measure Your Built-In Grill

If you're planning to upgrade your outdoor cooking setup or simply want to replace an old built-in grill, it's important to know the correct measurements before making a purchase. Measuring your built-in grill may seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and techniques, it can be done easily and accurately. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the steps on how to measure your built-in grill.

Tools Needed

Before you start measuring, you'll need a few tools. Here's a list of the tools you'll need:

  • Tape measure
  • Pen and paper

Step-by-Step Guide

Follow these steps to measure your built-in grill:

Step 1: Measure the Cutout Width

The first measurement you'll need is the cutout width. This is the distance between the left and right sides of the opening where the grill will be installed. To measure the cutout width, use your tape measure to measure from the inside edge of the left side of the opening to the inside edge of the right side of the opening. Record this measurement.

Step 2: Measure the Cutout Height

The next measurement you'll need is the cutout height. This is the distance between the top and bottom of the opening where the grill will be installed. To measure the cutout height, use your tape measure to measure from the inside edge of the top of the opening to the inside edge of the bottom of the opening. Record this measurement.

Step 3: Measure the Depth

The final measurement you'll need is the depth. This is the distance from the front of the opening to the back where the grill will be installed. To measure the depth, use your tape measure to measure from the inside edge of the front of the opening to the inside edge of the back of the opening. Record this measurement.

Additional Tips

Here are some additional tips to keep in mind when measuring your built-in grill:

  • Take accurate measurements multiple times to ensure accuracy.
  • Measure the opening and not the grill itself.
  • When purchasing a new built-in grill, make sure it fits the cutout dimensions.
  • Consider adding a little extra space when measuring to allow for ventilation and easy installation.

Conclusion

Measuring your built-in grill may seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and techniques, it can be done easily and accurately. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you'll be able to measure your grill with confidence and ensure that your new grill fits perfectly in your outdoor cooking space. Happy grilling!
