Outdoor Kitchen Must-Have Appliances
Today an outdoor kitchen means much more than a barbecue and a cooler of soda. While most modern outdoor kitchens still hail the grill as the central fixture, many have evolved into an extension of the home’s living space. Many people want to have the same conveniences they have inside, if not more. Custom outdoor kitchens can include pizza ovens, wet bars, fireplaces, side burners, smokers, warming drawers, roasting spits and other gadgets. Making sure your space is functional for cooking, entertaining, and relaxing can become overwhelming very quickly. However, the process can be simplified by dividing and conquering: Think about what you’ll be using it for the most, decide on a location, and determine the entertaining, living, and cooking spaces.
