An outdoor kitchen and bbq can utilize natural granite for its countertops. Although you may have a color palette in mind, know that on bright sunny days, dark colors will be drastically hotter than light colors – sometimes even too hot to touch! Also know that in Riverside, MI you should only install a SWR, severe weather rated, granite that can withstand the seasonal changes of our northern climate. Abella Stone can show you SWR granites from current our inventory at our full slab showroom.

Company News from Abella Stone

Granites are like ice cream (Shelby Township, MI)

Both ice cream and granite start out as liquids which when cooled became solid, and both will melt again if the temperature gets hot enough.
However, ice cream freezes at temperatures below 0°C, while granite freezes at temperatures below ~650°C.
It is also true that as both granite and ice cream increase in temperature to near their respective melting points, they get softer, as those of you who like to microwave your ice cream can tell.

Both ice cream and granite become crystalline when they become solid.
Different kinds of crystals in each, but crystals nonetheless. The crystals in ice cream are typically too small to see, but they are there.

Both granites and ice cream come in lots of “flavors” and colors, but they both have a few basic ingredients.
For ice cream the basic ingredients are milk, cream, and sugar.
For granite the basic ingredients are plagioclase feldspar, potassium feldspar, and quartz.

In both ice cream and granite, if you don’t have some of the basic ingredients, it’s not the real thing. According to utexas.edu
