It's what I use. Concrete block with stone veneer over that.
I've done concrete countertops outdoors. I do recommend an epoxy film finish on all sides, but not until it's fully cured.
This summer I have another one in the planning stages, though this is for my house...a combination wood-fired pizza oven, plus outdoor rotisserie for pig and lamb roasts. Possibly a tandori oven too. Nothing horribly ornate. My goal is to have it well built, but to blend in with the surroundings out by my pool area. Local stone veneer, etc, the same as my stone walls. I still have piles of stone from excavating and building way back when.
Countertops will either be concrete or soapstone.
For your bar and grill area, it's a catch-22. PT wood can move seasonally or corrode fasteners if the wrong ones are used. Steel can rust if not protected from moisture, especially moisture wicked from the ground. From your description, I'd probably go with PT.
Use a true cement board, not hardie.
