Hi, sort of an odd question here. I want to get a new propane BBQ for my deck. The deck we have is very narrow, and when the BBQ is in place, it's difficult to get behind it or access the side of it to reach around and turn on the propane. For this reason, when we bought our last BBQ, it had doors on the front so that we could easily access the propane tank to turn it on and off.

Now there's a few BBQ's I'm looking at buying, but they all have a solid front panel on the bottom--no doors. My question is--can I simply not install that front panel when assembling the BBQ? It's not a "load bearing wall", right? ;) Also, for weathering/rust purposes, it shouldn't make a difference, because the rear/sides of a BBQ are open least that's what I'm thinking. Am I correct?
