Once you have your cookware and countertop space figured out dont forget to look at sinks and cupboards as well. More undercounter space will let you keep more utensils grill tools plates and the like outside so you can make less trips back to the kitchen. On the same note you may also want to consider and outdoor sink. Many of them are very easy to install and maintain and they let you wash and dry your dishes right at the site of usage.
It creates a second kitchen Since most outdoor kitchens include a grill sink and mini refrigerator it will come in handy in the event that your main kitchen is out of commission. Outdoor kitchens can help you get through a plumbing emergency power outages (if you have an electric stove in the main kitchen) and a kitchen remodel. If the main kitchen is a mess of epic proportions and you just cant face cleaning it before dinner break out the paper plates and napkins and head outside.
As you can see while they may seem like a luxury there really are no set rules for defining a space as an outdoor kitchen. With a little imagination and helpful resources and design guidelines such as this you will find that no matter what type you may fancy it is sure to become a central location for your family and your friends to gather while enjoying the great outdoors. Following is a short and fun questionnaire to help you begin determining your outdoor kitchen design goals.
Sooner or later summer comes to an end. I dont know about you but I love to grill in the winter too. Try a toe kick heater. A toe kick heater is built into the bottom of the grill structure to keep your feet warm in the winter. Just as an umbrella sleeve will keep you comfortable in the summer a toe kick heater will let you cook outside all winter long. The subtle innovative design will allow you to stand by the grill until the food is well done. (Remember heat rises. Toe kick heaters will not only keep your feet warm but also make sure you dont freeze anything else off either.)
