For safety purposes always put a vent in the back of your outdoor BBQ structures. Every gas line eventually leaks. Including a vent will allow the gas to escape. If not the gas will sit in the grill until someone comes to turn it on and everyone knows what happens when uncontrolled gas and fire meet. A subtle vent in the back of the grill will allow excess gas in case of a leak to escape into the yard rather than sit in the confined space of the grill waiting for you to blow it up by simply lighting up the grill. Be safe and make sure you have some sort of vent in your outdoor BBQ structure. In other words dont blow up your house.
Preparing and enjoying meals outdoors along with casual entertaining has in recent years really taken off as homeowners have come to see just how appealing these alfresco preparation areas can be. Having originated in the southwest outdoor kitchens are now to be found all over the country. So just what kinds of foods can be cooked outdoors? Actually any type of food that can be prepared in an indoor kitchen can be prepared in an outdoor kitchen. Todays outdoor kitchen designs can include such items as: sinks cabinets and cutting boards. They can be fully featured areas which offering a covered bar and buffet area.
If you plan to have a third party perform the construction of the outdoor kitchen make sure you know exactly what you want and start the negotiations from your ideal point dont forget that contractors sometime have their own preferences but they are not the ones living in the house so remember to make it absolutely clear that you are calling the shots on this outdoor kitchen design.
One last word about outdoor kitchens you may find that some people are much nicer to you than they were before when you have your outdoor kitchen ready some of them may even call and ask if they can come over for a nice sunny Sunday lunch and enjoy your new outdoor kitchen you dont have to invite all of these new friends and if they complain about you never answering the phone or not getting the door you can simply tell them you were outside preparing a nice lunch in your new outdoor kitchen.
